T20 World Cup: Pakistan to take on Canada today in a must win match

T20 World Cup: Pakistan Canada match

NEW YORK: Pakistan face a do-or-die situation in the 2024 T20 World Cup when they face Canada in a Group A match at New York’s Nassau County International Stadium today (Tuesday).

Pakistan, led by Babar Azam, are coming on the back of consecutive defeats to USA and India, and because of that, their chances of qualifying for the Super Eight stage of the 2024 T20 World Cup look quite slim.

Canada, on the other hand, have also played two matches, winning one and losing one. They began with a seven-wicket defeat to co-hosts USA on the opening day of the tournament, but followed that up with a spectacular bowling display to beat Ireland by 12 runs.

A win for Canada against Pakistan will keep their hopes alive, whereas a defeat for the Men in Green would mean they will all but be eliminated.

For Canada, Nicholas Kirton and Shreyas Movva have been their most impressive batters so far, but they would hope for a much improved, clinical display against a Pakistan side who will look to improve on all departments.

In the T20 World Cup, Pakistan Canada match will be played today at 7:30pm Pakistan Standard Time (PST). 

To claim their place in the Super 8 round, the Men in Green will not only have to win group matches but also need to improve their run rate significantly.

In case the US are defeated by both India and Ireland, the match between Pakistan and Ireland on June 16 will become crucial.
