ICC World Cup 2023: Pakistan, one of the strong contenders for the World Cup 2023, is finding it difficult to reach even the semi-finals. Pakistan’s problems have increased further after the Men in Green lost to Afghanistan in the 22nd match of the Cricket World Cup. If you are a supporter of Pakistan, then this article will give you the Qualification Scenario of Pakistan for the World Cup 2023 Semifinals.
Last night on Monday, the 22nd match of the World Cup 2023 was played between Pakistan and Afghanistan at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, where Afghanistan wrote history by defeating Babar Azam & Company by eight wickets. Afghanistan’s 2023 CWC campaign is going great, the team has shown defeat to teams like defending champions England and Pakistan this season. Afghanistan is at sixth position in the points table after winning two out of five matches.
Pakistan Remaining Matches of CWC 2023
October 27: Pakistan vs South Africa, Chennai
October 31: Pakistan vs Bangladesh, Kolkata
November 4: Pakistan vs New Zealand, Bengaluru
November 11: Pakistan vs England, Kolkata
After the defeat by Afghanistan, Pakistan’s qualification looks almost negligible. But cricket is a game of uncertainties, it would be wrong to underestimate any team here. Pakistan has four more matches left in CWC 2023. If the Men in Green win all four of these matches, they will have to depend on Australia’s result.
Currently, India is at the top of the points table with ten points, while New Zealand is at the second position with eight points. The qualification of these two teams is considered almost certain. South Africa and Australia are present at the third and fourth positions, respectively. Australia still has to play five more matches in this tournament. If the Kangaroo team is successful in winning these five matches, then Pakistan will be directly out of the World Cup.
To qualify for the semi-finals of the Cricket World Cup 2023, Pakistan will have to win its remaining four matches at any cost and will also have to hope for a defeat by Australia. If the Men in Green lose even one of their remaining matches, their dreams of qualification for the Cricket World Cup 2023 will be over.
