Pakistan has to beat New Zealand by this Margin to Surpass New Zealand’s Net Run Rate in World Cup

In an eagerly anticipated clash, New Zealand is set to face Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2023 on Saturday in Bengaluru.

Pakistan recently broke their four-match losing streak in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, securing a convincing seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh at Eden Gardens on Tuesday. This crucial win elevated Pakistan to the fifth position on the points table, accumulating six points from three wins out of seven matches. While Pakistan remains in the race for a semi-final spot, they face a challenging path ahead.

On the other hand, New Zealand slipped to the fourth spot on the points table after suffering a substantial 190-run defeat against South Africa in Pune on Wednesday. Currently, New Zealand holds a net run rate of +0.484, in contrast to Pakistan’s -0.024.

The upcoming Pakistan vs. New Zealand match holds significant implications. A victory for Pakistan would equalize the points for both teams at eight. To surpass New Zealand’s net run rate, Pakistan would need to win by approximately 83 runs or chase the target in around 35 overs.

However, it’s important to note that both teams have one more game remaining after this encounter, introducing the possibility of a new net run rate scenario in the final group match. The stakes are high as the teams compete for a coveted spot in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2023.
