After winning their first 4 games, England have put themselves in a great position. Their remaining match is against South Africa. A win in that game guarantees them qualification at the number 1 spot.
The only way for England to be knocked out is if South Africa and Australia win all their games by massive margins to then knock England out on NRR.

Though South Africa are at 2nd on the points table with a game left, their qualification will be a bit tough. Their last opposition is England. A win would almost cement their spot into the semis. But a loss would mean that they could be eliminated. If Australia win both their remaining games, which are against Bangladesh and the West Indies, then they would have 4 wins in 5 games. So for South Africa to qualify, they need a win in their game against England, or need Australia to lose at least 1 game.
𝐀𝐮𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐚: 𝟐/𝟑 𝐐𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐬: 𝟓𝟎-𝟓𝟎
