Can Pakistan qualify for the semifinals?
It's worth noting that three teams, including hosts India, five-time champion Australia, and South Africa, have qualified for the semifinals of the ODI World Cup 2023. However, for the fourth spot, New Zealand and Pakistan are in contention. With the Kiwis having an edge over Pakistan with a huge net run rate, If Pakistan wants to qualify for the semifinals, they will need to beat England by more than 287 runs.
While chasing the target, Pakistan must beat England within 16 balls. The task looks next to impossible, which certainly makes New Zealand the fourth semifinalist. It's worth noting that India will take on New Zealand at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on November 15 if Pakistan fails to achieve the required NRR. On the other hand, Australia will take on South Africa at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on October 16 for the second Semifinals.
