Scenarios: Here’s What Pakistan Need to do Against Bangladesh to Qualify

Pakistan’s hopes for a yet another semifinal might just be over with England’s win over New Zealand today. Had the English surrendered today, then Pakistan only had to beat Bangladesh to move further in the competition.

However, things are much more complicated now.

Given if Pakistan beat Bangladesh, they will be on level points with New Zealand. Out of the two – whoever has the better Net Run-Rate (NRR) will become the 4th semifinalist.

Pakistan Has to Bat First

Pakistan will have to bat first in order to have any chance of qualification. If Bangladesh wins the toss and opts to bat first, then Pakistan will be knocked out straight away.

However, if Pakistan bat first then here is what needs to happen:

  • Score 350 runs, beat Bangladesh by 311 runs
  • Score 400 runs, beat Bangladesh by 316 runs

The exact margins will change depending on the scores.


Further scenarios will be updated when all the calculations are completed.


  • WE GOT THIS STAY HOPEFULL
    …. ok maybe not
    IF WE JUST HADN’T LOST TO WEST INDIES

    • Looking at current scenarios, losing to WI was not the problem, only losing badly brought us to this impossible equation:(

  • No problem, we can support India team now. I am sure they will not try to win once they know Pakistan is supporting.

  • THIS IS SOMETHING DISGUSTING PAKISTAN ALWAYS DEPENDS ON IFS AND BUTS i.e. THEY ARE FACING THIS TYPE OF POSITION. AND PUT PAKISTAN PEOPLES IN DEEP SORROW. (THEY DONT HAVE UNITED EACH OTHER ALWAYS PULLING LEGS OF EACH OTHER) PCB MUST CHANGE AND IN GOOD AND HONEST MAN.

    • Who is going to change these PCB guys? decades long each person stays in PCB, no wonder they engineer the team selections as per their interests

  • poor team they deserve that
    poor captaincy against Aus match sarfaraz can easily win that but he prefer hide himself by bringing bowlers on strike
    this is called captaincy ??
    whole team must be changed expect few ones

  • Boycott of all Indians things specially for bollywood films beacuse they are our enemies. Or in shaa Allah Pakistan will be proof we are best Allah with us. We love pakistan and Pakistani team.

  • “Yes It is Possible”

    Batting: Pakistan = 400/2 (50)
    Fakhar = 100
    Imam = 100
    Babar = 150
    Haris = 50

    Bowling: Bangladesh = 84/10 (20)
    Aamir: 5/25 (6)
    Shaeen: 4/35 (6)
    Shadab 1/24 (8)

    • Dear Pakistani Awam Please wake up it’s 2019 not 1992 :p Forget worldcup semi final hopes. Pakistani cricketers play for money not for nation’s pride. Our team is not capable of qualifying. They have lost to WI, Aus and India and hopping to get rescued by India a big lol and New Zealand why someone come to rescue you if you have lost yourself ??
      Just think positively.

  • Imran Khan fails as a PM which is a fact and not an opinion. Imran said he will select the team on merit which he didn’t. Imran had 9 months, he failed to change chief selector in this 9 months period. Best way is to kick out Imran Khan, he doesn’t deserve to be PM of Pakistan.

    • Yes you are right. Nine months is enought time. In this timeframe Imran could easily change chief selector Inzi and could have easily replace him with Abdul RASHID Latif. But Imran doesn’t do that which clearly shows that he doesn’t have the will bcoz he is a loser and nothing more. So you are right Imran is a failure.
