Pakistan’s World Cup Semi-Final Qualification Scenario After Win Over Bangladesh

Pakistan’s seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the ICC World Cup 2023 was a significant boost for their campaign. However, the path to the semi-finals remains challenging, with multiple variables at play.

Pakistan must win their remaining matches to have any chance of advancing. Ideally, they need New Zealand to lose their upcoming games, as New Zealand currently has eight points from six matches. If New Zealand loses their next three matches, both teams would finish the group stage with eight points each. Pakistan can secure a semi-final spot by collecting 10 points if they win their next three fixtures.

While this scenario provides hope for Pakistan, it’s important to note that New Zealand is a formidable side, and expecting them to lose three consecutive matches is a considerable ask. Pakistan’s fate is somewhat dependent on their performance and also on the outcomes of other teams in the tournament. This adds an element of uncertainty and complexity to their semi-final aspirations.

As they continue their campaign, Pakistan will need to focus on their own performances while keeping a keen eye on the results of other teams, especially New Zealand. The competition in the World Cup is intense, and Pakistan faces a challenging journey ahead to secure a spot in the knockout stage.
