* If England v Bangladesh washes out, Bangladesh goes through to secure 4th place.

Assumptions for Pool B
India win all matches (WI, Zim, Ire)
SA win all matches (Pak, UAE)
WI beats UAE, Ireland beats Zim (MA)
Pakistan vs Ireland is the decider for 4th place

If, 

Pak beat SA; rest matches assumed the same -
•    Then WI end at 6, Pak go to 3rd place if they beat Ireland else fight for 3rd or 4th on NRR along with Ireland and WI who are also on 6 pts. (mostly likely Ireland loses out due to very bad NRR currently)
