After two consecutive wins to England over India and New Zealand, Pakistan’s hopes to qualify for the semis were dented as their net run rate is way behind New Zealand’s.
Pakistan still has a mathematical possibility of reaching the semis but the task require a miracle.
However, this possibility is heavily dependant on the toss. If Bangladesh wins the toss and decides to bat first. In this case, Pakistan stand eliminated even before the first ball.
But, if Pakistan wins the toss and decides to bat first, then there is a chance but the chance require a miracle.
If Pakistan scores 350 batting first, they would have to bowl out Bangladesh for 39 to get above New Zealand in run rate.
If Pakistan scores 400 batting first, they would have to win at least by 316 runs to qualify for the semis.
