The elimination of South Africa is guaranteed.
The Netherlands came out on top, and South Africa was awarded the spot of runner-up in the competition.
If South Africa were to lose their match against the Dutch at the Adelaide Oval, then Pakistan would need to win their match against Bangladesh later that day at the same location in order to keep their chances of winning alive. Pakistan’s opponent is the nation of Bangladesh. Pakistan and Bangladesh would compete against one other as the opposing team. In that scenario, Pakistan would move on to the semifinals, while South Africa would be eliminated from the game.

Semifinalist if the game gets washed out due to rain

Bangladesh will be eliminated from the competition. When all is said and done, South Africa will finish with six points as a result of their two wins and two draws, and Pakistan will likewise finish with six points as a result of their three wins.
