The ICC World T20 Qualifier 2015 is at it’s business end at this moment. Afghanistan, the team placed third in Group B is facing the second-placed team in Group A, Hong Kong, who are capable of decent upsets. The winner will qualify to play in the ICC World Twenty20 in India, but the loser doesn’t go out. The loser will still be able to qualify, if they win their subsequent tie with the fourth-placed team in Group A, Papua New Guinea. In the other game today, Netherlands, the second-placed team in Group B, take on Namibia, the third team in Group A. The loser of this match will get a chance to qualify if they beat Oman in their subsequent match.
