Coming into the 41st game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Pakistanis were glued to the TV sets as New Zealand’s victory against England would have augmented the chances of boys in green to enter the semi-finals of the competition. However, hosts brought their best game forward to win the contest and claim a spot in the final-four stage of the event.
This, effectively, shattered Pakistan’s semi-finals hopes as the green team needs to totally decimate a spirited Bangladeshi side to go into the knock-out round. Nevertheless, fans want Pakistan’s players to give their absolute best in the contest against Bangladesh and the notion was endorsed by former Pakistan captain Azhar Ali.
Reflecting on Pakistan’s journey in the ongoing mega-event in England and Wales, the Lahore born shared disappointment to see his team almost getting thrown out as he opined that Pakistan registered a laudable comeback in the championship. Nevertheless, the Test specialist urged his teammates to give their all as he wants to see them going out of the tourney holding their heads high.
