Pakistan makes another comeback in the tournament after its six-wicket victory over unbeaten New Zealand. Babar Azam once again performed brilliantly well under-pressure, scoring a beautiful 101, becoming first Pakistani non-opener batsman to do so in 32 years in the World Cup.

Pakistan chased New Zealand’s target of 238 on a tricky Edgbaston pitch, which could have turned the tables. However, Azam’s century coupled with Sohail’s 68 saved the match. They raised a 126-run stand for the fourth wicket after Mohammed Hafeez’s dismissal.

What’s next?

After claiming win over New Zealand, Pakistan now needs Bangladesh to lose at least one match. Pakistan is required to win all to pave its way to the Semifinals, including the one from Bangladesh.

However, to land in Semi-finals, Bangladesh needs to:

  • Win all the remaining matches.
  • Sri Lanka will lose all their remaining matches.
  • England does not win not more than one.

On the other hand, is a smooth journey for India, New Zealand, and Australia. All three teams have put forth stunning performances in the tournament so far.
