England registered a stunning win against New Zealand in their last match of round one to safely secure the third spot in the Semifinal of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
With one match yet be played, Australia tops the point table with 14 points. India with 12 points is at the second position and also has one match remaining. Today, England defeated New Zealand by 119 runs to reach the semi-finals of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. England with 12 points secured the third spot in the points table.
Unless a miracle happens, Newzealand will be the fourth team to qualify for the semi-finals round this season. New Zealand has made 11 points in their 9 matches and has a run rate of +0.175. On the other hand, Pakistan has 9 points and one match remaining in the first round. However, they lack in the run-rate criteria. Pakistan has a run rate of -0.792 much behind New Zealand.
Pakistan vs Bangladesh
Pakistan will face Bangladesh on 5th July in their last match of the first round which probably will be their last match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 itself.
Pakistan will have to beat Bangladesh by 311 runs after scoring 350 runs to make their way in the semi-final. This is quite an impossible target to achieve. If Bangladesh opt to bat first or the match gets abandoned due to rain then Pakistan will be eliminated ever before a ball is bowled.
The fans of the Pakistan team will be highly disappointed by these facts. Pakistan team has faced heavy criticism because of their form and fitness in the ongoing tournament. Fans had lashed out the players earlier after losing the crucial match against India.
