Pak vs Canada ICC T20 World Cup 2024

news-details

 USA: 11 June 2024:  Babar Azam's team suffered defeats against USA and India, putting them in a precarious position in the T20 World Cup. Their upcoming match against Canada on Tuesday is crucial, as only a victory will keep their hopes alive for advancing to the next stage.

A loss in this pivotal match would render their final Group A fixture against Ireland meaningless, sending them home early from the tournament. However, a convincing win against Canada, coupled with a victory over Ireland on Sunday and favorable results from other group matches, could still see them progress.

The manner of Pakistan's defeat against India has sparked outrage among fans and pundits. Despite appearing in control during the 11th over, needing 63 runs off 59 balls with eight wickets remaining, they ultimately fell short by six runs.

Former captain Wasim Akram has called for changes within the team, suggesting that underperforming players should be dropped. He expressed his disappointment, stating that Pakistan's performance doesn't warrant advancement to the Super Eight stage.

Assistant coach Azhar Mahmood attributed the loss to poor shot selection and decision-making by the batsmen during the chase. He highlighted the significance of the upcoming match against Canada, labeling it as a "do-or-die" encounter and urging the team to deliver their best performance.
