Pakistan is playing very good cricket.

NZ is in real trouble. Anything less than 250 will be very difficult to defend.

Not good news for us.

Not really. Pak has to play US. So they can't topple us if we win against them. (unless somehow they improve NRR above us - I don't think it will happen)

I am a bit more worried about SL. they have a better chance. their next 3 games are against South African, West indies, India. they can't win more than 1 of those games. or win one have another rain out.

Ofcourse England need to lose both their games also.


so both the rain and nz game hurting us. things would have been so much eaiser.

Indeed, missing out with NZ, NZ sharing point with IND and us we sharing point with SL is hurting badly now, .........getting ready to be knocked out and prepare for next world cup!

PAK get inspired by our performance as Shoiab Akter suggested it seems.

I don't care about SEMI. All I want in this wc is beat India and Pakistan - and my world cup is done and I will be extremely happy.

That's not right thinking, you should always aim for WC SEMI/FINAL ,and then about winning against certain team.

That would technically take us to semi, assuming England folds against one more team. Lol

If we beat IND and PAK we deserve to be in the semi. It will be very very unfortunate if we still don't make it

Nope. Sri Lanka can still win all games and get to 12 points

It'll be a travesty if this stupid NZ team edges us out and makes the semis

agree. they don't belong in top 4. got extremely lucky this wc. 3 of their wins shouldn't have happened. And then a rain - a game they were sure to lose. that's 7 extra points. they should be on 4.

Agreed - Beating Ind will do it for me. Beating Pak on top will be icing on the cake.

We are playing against India on this pitch... hope they change it or we will have to bat second.

Afghanistan will take care of this Pak team. Give them a nice afghani suitable pitch that we played on. This pak team is not world champion team... they are punching waay above their weight.

afghan have couple of world class bowlers in spin. So does pakistan in pace. Pitch decides the match.

Ind feels the pressure playing against us just like Pak feels when they play against Ind. This is why they struggle to chase even mediocre scores. I think we are capable of scoring 330 against any team if we play at 80%. If we get a 100+ run opening partnership from Tamim-Soumya and some support from the lower middle order we can get 370+

not true...we had couple of close matches vs Ind because we played well. Ind also easily beat us, see CT semi

I think we are under unnecessary pressure when we play Ind..in both CT and Asia cup we squandered great starts and ended up with below par score

Pakistan winning is a good thing. It means New Zealand aren't safe either. Will give us more options just in case England win both their games. Run rate will be a problem though. Just need to hope Australia win all their games and top the group.

We bowled well but every time our batting was abysmal. It was always a lone hand that gave us somewhat of a total to bowl at. We play a good half. We need to put together a game where we play well in both departments. We need to figure out a way to play with less pressure than Ind

May be no reverse swing, overcast condition, new ball will definitely swing

I feel the same way. I want to finish this world cup with a bang. Semi spot is not in our control honestly. Let us win those 2 matches, and we will see if we can make it or not. If we can make it, would be fabulous but if we cant, at least we will be happy knowing we have beaten both Pakistan and India in the world cup.
