At the same time, the qualifier round is being played between the other 10 teams for the two remaining places. Meanwhile, Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi reached America on tour. Here he gave a speech at the White House on Thursday night and during this he also mentioned the Cricket World Cup to be held in India. During his speech, PM Modi wished America's cricket team.

What did PM Modi say?

PM Modi said during his speech that apart from baseball, the reputation of cricket has also started increasing in America. This year the Cricket World Cup is to be played in India. The US team is trying its best to qualify for that. So we wish the team all the best for success. Mention of sports in the midst of PM Modi's political speech brought smiles on the faces of everyone present at the White House function.

Where do the US stand in the World Cup qualifiers?

In fact, PM Modi has congratulated the American cricket team for the World Cup qualification, but the team is in a bad condition in the ongoing tournament in Zimbabwe. Let us tell you that the US team was placed in Group A along with West Indies, Nepal, Netherlands and Zimbabwe. In this round each team has to play one match each against each team. In such a situation, America has lost its first three matches. After suffering defeats against West Indies, Nepal and Netherlands, their hopes of making it to the main round of the World Cup have almost vanished.

If we talk about the qualification round, then 10 teams have been divided into two groups. After the league round, the top three teams from both the groups will play in the Super 6 and then any two teams from there will make it to the main round. Currently, West Indies and Zimbabwe are on top of Group A after winning both their opening matches. So the Netherlands is in third place with one win and one loss. On the other hand, Oman is on top in Group B after winning both their opening matches. So Sri Lanka and Scotland have played one match each and after winning these teams are in second and third place respectively. The final of the qualifier tournament will be played on July 9.
