The Men in Green took on Bangladesh in Adelaide on 6 November 2022 in the ongoing 20-20 World Cup. Pakistan came to this clash after losing two out of their four matches. So, they were hoping for a win from the Dutch against South Africa. However, the Netherlands did not disappoint Pakistan fans as they defeated the Proteas by 13 runs.
After that result, Pakistani fans started to believe again that they can qualify for the semi-finals if they manage to defeat Bangladesh. Babar Azam and his men were coming off after winning a game against the Proteas. On the other hand, Bangladesh were also looking to qualify for the semi-finals by defeating the Men in Green.
