LAHORE The World Twenty20 has now reached a place where the semi-final places are to be decided. With only one game left for each team in the Super Eights, the battle for semi-final places will intensify in the next few days. In Group E, England are placed at the top of the table after their convincing victories over Pakistan and South Africa. With a positive net run-rate of +1.176 and barring some bizarre results, Paul Collingwoods men should be secure of their place in the play-offs. According to a website, the only way England cant reach the last four is if New Zealand hammer them by a large margin in Mondays final group clash and South Africa do likewise against Pakistan. Those results will see South Africa and New Zealand reach the play-offs. Of course, by the time the Kiwi-England game kicks off, both teams will know exactly where they stand as the Proteas-Pakistan game takes place earlier in the day. As things stand, the Black Caps are second in the group with a net run rate of -0.300. They need to beat England and stay ahead of South Africa on run rate, if the Proteas - who will start the day on a -0.650 run rate - manage to beat Pakistan. For South Africa, victory over Pakistan coupled with an England win over Daniel Vettoris team will see them into the play-offs along with England - providing they have a better run rate than the Kiwis. Despite starting the day bottom of the group with no points, Pakistan can still make the semi-finals. A win over South Africa coupled with an England victory over New Zealand will see them through as their net run-rate of -0.215 is better than both Kiwis and South Africas.
