Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
After producing a series of lackadaisical displays in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistan’s World Cup hopes are merely hanging by a thread. The boys in green are in need to claim glory in all of their remaining fixtures, but that along cannot guarantee them a place in the semi-finals of the competition as other equations need to go in their favor.
Despite all the difficulties and criticism, recalled pacer Wahab Riaz has no plans whatsoever to give up. The 33-year old cricketer admitted the pressure on the unit, but he is positive about the team doing well and winning the remaining matches of the mega-event.
Refuting the grouping reports, Wahab added that team is united with an aim to make amends. While Pakistan’s chances looked bleak, Sri Lanka’s unexpected victory against England has revived hopes of many fans to see the green unit making it to the final-four stage.
“We didn’t play good enough, not as much as good we are. We need to take control of our mistakes. We are a unit and focused to come back in a strong manner. The pressure is surely there but it also motivates you to do well. Hopefully, we’ll be able to qualify for the semis of the event,” the Lahore born revealed as he was oozing with optimism.
