Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
It has been the same old story for Pakistan in World Cups as the men in green were humbled in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament at the hands of India. In a game where rain caused few interruptions, India batted first to post a mammoth total of 336 which proved too much for the green team as they lost the game by 89 runs (D/L method).
After the game, wicket-keeper batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed shared his views where he lamented the batting collapse as a major reason of defeat. In a crestfallen mood, the Karachi born admitted India’s superiority as he promised to come back hard in the remaining matches of the competition. Pakistan’s next challenge will be to take down South Africa on June 23 at Lord’s.
“We lost the game in those three overs where we lost four quick wickets. Fakhar (Zaman) and Babar (Azam) both were going really well but we collapsed after that. It’s getting tougher for us and now we need to win all the games to give ourselves a chance of qualification,” said by Sarfaraz Ahmed as he went on to decode the game against India.
