Three wins in the upcoming matches will give Pakistan a total of six points. However, Pakistan would even hope that the Proteas and Zimbabwe lose at least two of their remaining games.

Moreover, the Pakistan vs South Africa game will become all the more important as the loser of that clash will be at risk of being eliminated.
