With an impressive record, they have emerged victorious in four of those encounters, while also experiencing the bitter taste of defeat in an equal number. In a thrilling showdown against Bangladesh, the team not only emerged victorious but also orchestrated a remarkable turnaround in their Net Run Rate (NRR), transforming it from a dismal negative to an impressive positive.

In order to secure a spot in the highly anticipated semifinals, Pakistan finds themselves confronted with a myriad of intricate scenarios. In a crucial upcoming match against England, the team finds themselves in a precarious position, desperately needing a victory to keep their hopes alive. However, their fate hangs in the balance, as they must also depend on the outcome of another match. Either Sri Lanka must triumph over New Zealand, or New Zealand must narrowly edge past Sri Lanka. The stakes couldn’t be higher, as this team fights tooth and nail to secure their place in the tournament. In addition, it is imperative for them to clinch a momentous triumph, either by a staggering margin of 130 runs or by relentlessly pursuing the target within a mere 29 overs.

New Zealand, a formidable team that has graced the World Cup finals on two occasions, currently holds a commendable advantage over their counterparts from Pakistan in terms of Net Run Rate (NRR). New Zealand, boasting an impressive Net Run Rate (NRR) of 0.398, has undeniably positioned themselves in a highly advantageous stance.

In a bid to further complicate Pakistan’s prospects, the formidable New Zealand squad sets its sights on a resounding triumph over Sri Lanka. The 1992 World Cup winners would face an escalating challenge in their quest for qualification. In their upcoming clash against the formidable 1996 World Cup champions, the team is fervently hoping that inclement weather does not cast its shadow on the match, as they strive to achieve a favourable outcome. Whether it be a traditional victory or a triumph determined by the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method, the team is determined to leave no stone unturned in their quest for success.

Afghanistan’s thrilling expedition in the tournament has been nothing short of a captivating rollercoaster ride. In a matchn against Australia, the team’s valiant efforts fell short, despite their impressive display of skill in reducing the Kangaroos to a mere 91/7. The match, which saw them defending a challenging target of 292, injected an electrifying dose of drama into the already intense competition. In order to secure a spot in the semifinals, Afghanistan is now confronted with a formidable challenge of triumphing over South Africa by a substantial margin.

Afghanistan’s aspirations rest on the outcome of Sri Lanka’s clash against New Zealand, along with the possibility of inclement weather leading to a washout and England’s triumph over Pakistan.
