World Cup Match 43: Pakistan vs Bangladesh
Venue: Lord’s, London
Time: 3 pm IST
Pakistan’s semi-final chances dwindled the day India lost its match against England on June 30 and then again on July 3, when England beat New Zealand to become the third semi-finalist. Pakistan now has just one match to go, against Bangladesh and if its wins, it will have the same number of points as New Zealand, which is 11. However, New Zealand has a better net run rate than Pakistan and so it is almost certain that New Zealand will be the fourth semi-finalist.
However, Pakistan has not lost hope, it now faces an impossible task of winning the toss, batting first and putting a score as big as 350 runs on board and beating Bangladesh by at least 311 runs. Luckily for Pakistan, skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed won the crucial toss and opted to bat first. If Bangladesh had won the toss, Pakistan would have lost out on its semi-final chance even before a ball was bowled.
Three Scenarios in which Pakistan can qualify for World Cup semi-finals:
1. Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 311 runs after scoring 350
2. Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 316 runs after scoring 400
3. Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 321 runs after scoring 450
