In an exciting development, Pakistan’s cricket team has rekindled their hopes of reaching the World Cup 2023 semifinals after a resounding seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh.
With this much-needed triumph over Bangladesh, Pakistan has secured six vital points in the tournament. The Men in Green have two crucial matches remaining against New Zealand and England.
Captain Babar Azam led his side to a dominant performance, and though the odds remain slim, Pakistan’s World Cup journey has been reignited.
Pakistan needs to clinch victory in both remaining matches to accumulate 10 points. The most straightforward path would require Pakistan to win both games and hope for losses by Australia and New Zealand in their remaining matches. Pakistan’s chances also hinge on Afghanistan’s performance; they must not win more than one game from their three remaining fixtures. An alternate scenario sees Australia and New Zealand winning one game each. In this case, Pakistan must aim for substantial wins to bolster their run rate.
