England’s remaining institutions – New Zealand and Sri Lanka – are tougher on paper than Australia’s – Ireland and Afghanistan – so Friday’s flop means a chance of making a decisive move up the table has now gone soliciting. That said, two big triumphs in its final two matches, first against the Kiwis and also Sri Lanka, should be enough to shoot England through.

The make- up of Group 1 will be clearer after New Zealand’s institution against Sri Lanka on Saturday. New Zealand’s 89- run palm over Australia coupled with its point from the rained- out Afghanistan institution, and a superior NRR, means another palm would put it in control of the group.
