ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 | 'It's Cricket, You Never Know' - Babar Azam On Pakistan's Semi-Final Chances

4 months ago
Pakistan's ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 campaign, in all likelihood, will end with a league match against defending champions, England on Saturday (November 11) at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. New Zealand's facile win against Sri Lanka on Thursday has all but ended Pakistan's chances of making the semi-finals. But Babar Azam is a firm believer in "positive hope". The 1992 champions need a miracle, an unimaginably massive win against England to make the last four. In terms of tangible number, Pakistan will need to beat England by around 287 runs batting first, and with 284 balls to spare, chasing. New Zealand's NRR after nine matches is +0.743, while Pakistan have managed +0.036 in eight matches. The fight is for the final semi-final sport. (Video: ICC)
