Really throws that 4th SF spot wide open,Pakistan play Afghanistan and Bangladesh,so either way England will have to win at least one out of India and New Zealand,and in all likelihood both,tough ask on their present form.

Good partnership from Stokes and Buttler,but they'll need to go on for a while yet,to give England a fighting chance.

113-4,7 an over required for 20 plus overs,not impossible,but one or both of these will have to be there till the end.
