CHENNAI: After the Pakistan team’s third consecutive defeat in the World Cup, their fate will once again depend on certain conditions.
After Afghanistan beat Pakistan in the match, if we look at the points table, India is at the top of the list, followed by New Zealand at her second position, South Africa at her third position and Australia at her fourth position .
Pakistan remains in fifth place despite her third consecutive loss, followed by Afghanistan in sixth place.
For Pakistan to advance to the semi-finals, they cannot afford even one loss. Pakistan must win all the upcoming matches of the World Cup. Only then will Pakistan get 12 points.
First, if Pakistan wins all her four matches and Australia loses two of her five matches, Pakistan will easily advance to the semi-finals.
However, if Pakistan loses even one match, it will be unlikely to advance to the semi-finals as England and Bangladesh will overtake Pakistan in the points ranking after victory. Moreover, if Pakistan loses more than one match, Pakistan will be immediately eliminated from the tournament.
