Yesterday, Pakistan beat Afghanistan in last over Finish Encounter and stayed alive their hope to reach in the Semis of world cup 2019. But, Pakistan will also pray that India will beat England today. They have played 8 matches so far in the world cup 2019 and won 4 matches out of them and one match washed out due to rain. Pakistan are standing at 4th position in the points table with 9 points. Pakistan will face Bangladesh in their last group stage match of CWC 2019 on July 05.
Yesterday during the Afghanistan Batting, Sarfaraz Ahmed tried an MS Dhoni but failed. He can try to run out without seeing the stump like MS Dhoni does many times. But Sarfaraz Ahmed could not do this.
Pakistan stay alive their hope of Semis
After the match, Pak Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed Said,
“Thanks to almighty. Thanks to all the supporters, they have been cheering us from ball one and I think this is a great win for us. It was not an easy pitch to bat on but, credit should go to Imad for the way he batted till the end. We know it is not easy (the chase) and their bowlers used the conditions very well. We have been batting very well, especially Babar Azam played very well and I think we needed a partnership in the middle overs, but in the end, we finished well. Everyone chipped in and I think it is a team effort. We all know that after four games, it won’t be easy to win all the next four games, but we are taking it to match by match.”
“In the previous game, the way Babar Azam and Harris Sohail handled the pressure was really good and today the way Imad handled the pressure and in the end, Shadab and the way Wahab Riaz batted, I think his 15 runs were very important. We all know he (Shaheen Afridi) is a good bowler and he is improving day by day and I think he is working hard and he bowled really well today. All the other bowlers – Wahab, Amir, Shadab and Imad – also bowled well today and I believe all of them are in good nick. Obviously we all are watching (India v England game), but we are not thinking about it and hopefully, the better team wins.”
