Super-8 qualification scenario

NEW YORK: Pakistan’s T20 World Cup 2024 campaign has hit a rough patch, leaving fans and analysts alike questioning their chances of advancing to the Super 8 stage.

Pakistan’s defeat against India: time for major changes, says Mohsin Naqvi

Skipper Babar Azam’s men in green suffered a narrow 6-run loss against arch-rivals India on Sunday, compounding their woes after an unexpected defeat by the United States in their opening match.

Despite a stellar bowling performance from Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf, who each claimed three wickets to restrict India to 119 runs, Pakistan’s batting line-up faltered.

The disciplined Indian pacers, particularly Jasprit Bumrah – who was named Player of the Match – proved too formidable, dealing a crushing blow to Pakistan’s aspirations.

Currently, Pakistan sits with zero points from two matches, making their qualification prospects bleak. To have any hope of advancing, Pakistan’s squad must secure victories in their remaining fixtures against Canada and Ireland. However, this alone won’t suffice.

Pakistan also needs both the United States and Canada to falter in their remaining matches.

Even if Pakistan manages to win their final two games and the United States loses theirs, the final Super 8 spot could be determined by Net Run Rate (NRR). With both teams potentially tied at four points each, Pakistan’s fate may hinge on a series of favourable outcomes and a superior NRR. – INP
