Pakistan’s World Cup campaign has more or less come to a painful end as they now face an almost impossible task of completing a significantly high margin of victory over Bangladesh to create any chances of qualification for the semi-finals.
Looking back at Pakistan’s showing in the tournament, opening batsman Imam-ul-Haq identified his side’s defeat to Australia as the lowest point. Pakistan were going smoothly in their chase of Australia’s total of 307 before a collapse cost them 4 wickets in no time and they never recovered enough falling short of 41 runs in the end.
“The Australia defeat hurts me a lot. I was set and playing well. I should have won that match for Pakistan. We lost four quick wickets and I should have won that game and we would have beaten a big team in the World Cup,” Imam mentioned his feelings regarding that bitter loss.
