Pakistan will now have to win their three matches in the World Cup, after which they will have 6 points, but still it will be difficult to reach the semi-finals.
Even after winning three matches, Pakistan’s access to the final 4 will depend on the defeat of other teams.
The three matches of the national team are against Netherlands on October 30, South Africa on November 3 and Bangladesh on November 7.
If we look at the points table, India is at the first position with four points after winning two matches, while South Africa is at the second position with three points.
Zimbabwe is third with three points, Bangladesh is fourth with two points and Pakistan is fifth without any points.
