Pakistan’s chances of reaching the Cricket World Cup 2023 semifinals have taken a hit after three consecutive defeats, but they are still mathematically in contention. To qualify, they need to win all of their remaining matches, which would give them 12 points. However, even this may not be enough, as they may also need to improve their net run rate.
Pakistan’s remaining fixtures are against South Africa, Bangladesh, New Zealand, and England. All of these teams are strong opponents, so Pakistan will need to be at their best to win all four matches. They will also need to rely on other results going their way, as they may need to finish above Australia in the points table to secure a semi-final spot.
Here is a breakdown of Pakistan’s qualification scenarios:
Win all four remaining matches: This would guarantee Pakistan a place in the semifinals.
Lose one match: If Pakistan lose one match, they will need to finish above Australia in the points table. This will depend on the results of Australia’s remaining matches.
Lose more than one match: If Pakistan lose more than one match, they will be eliminated from the tournament.
Pakistan’s chances of reaching the semifinals are slim, but they are not impossible. They will need to play some of their best cricket of the tournament, and they will also need some luck. If they can win all of their remaining matches, they will give themselves a good chance of qualifying.
