Net Run Rate’s Crucial Role

The situation intensifies because both Pakistan and New Zealand could finish with 10 points each if they win their remaining matches. In this scenario, the semifinal berth would be decided on net run rate. Currently, Pakistan lags behind New Zealand in this metric, making it crucial for Pakistan to achieve a significant win against England to improve their standing.

 Australia’s Matches and Pakistan’s Hopes

Pakistan’s path to the semis could also be cleared if Australia faces defeat in their remaining matches against England, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh. Such outcomes would keep Australia at eight points, allowing Pakistan to surpass them with 10 points. Additionally, Pakistan would hope for an Afghan loss to South Africa to prevent any rivals from exceeding the 10-point mark.

Closing Remarks

In the thrilling Pakistan versus New Zealand match, Fakhar Zaman’s remarkable century and Babar Azam’s valuable contributions led Pakistan to victory. New Zealand had set a monumental target, but Pakistan’s determination and excellent performance secured the win.

In conclusion, while Pakistan’s path to the World Cup 2023’s semifinals is challenging, it is still possible through a combination of victories and favorable results in other matches. Fans of Pakistan cricket will be eagerly watching their journey in the remaining matches of the tournament.
