Changes on cards in Pakistan team after World Cup 2019

Adjust Comment Print

New Zealand have 11 points, courtesy of a fast start when they beat Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan then had their game against India washed out.

We are coming to the end of group stage matches at the World Cup and three teams viz. Australia, India and England have qualified for the semifinals.

More, they have not beaten any of the three teams in this World Cup.

The team that ends in the first place will play the fourth place team, which looks like New Zealand, on the other hand the second placed team will play the team that finished third which is England. What Martin needs is the ability to go out there and express himself on the game - stick his chest out and play the game that we know he's capable of.

Both have played eight matches each so far in the tournament as Pakistan won four and lost three with one NR match while Bangladesh won three and lost four matches with one NR match.

"The guys are buzzing, laughing, smiling at how ridiculous some of the shots the two guys are playing, good balls being hit for four or six, how hard they are to bowl at".

If anyone in the stands on Tuesday was around when that happened, we can only imagine how offended they must've been. You lose, but I thought the way we lost was exactly the way I wanted us to play .

Currently, Pakistan run-rate is -0.792 and the Kiwis has got +0.175 -a huge margin, and for Pakistan to overturn the run-rate, they will have to beat Bangladesh by at least 308 runs.

All will depend upon India vs Sri Lanka and Australia vs South Africa matches on July 6. "It doesn't work for us and it won't win us the World Cup".

"Taylor and Williamson probably haven't got quite as many as what we're normally used to so they are probably due", he said. "I suppose we have rode the rollercoaster of playing well, playing bad and playing good again, so particularly our bowlers, they need a rest, they need to get away". He said although there were some positives from the tournament, but talking about them didn't make any sense now because the eventual results went against them.

The 28-year-old added: "We stood up and played our brand of cricket under that pressure". He said his team can only give it their best shot.

New Zealand expect star quick Lockie Ferguson to be fit for next Tuesday's likely semi-final date with Australia after being sidelined by a hamstring injury.
