Pakistan team is out of the ongoing cricket world cup after Bangladesh crossed the calculated net run rate margin, which Pakistan needed to reserve a seat in semis, today in Lord’s Cricket Stadium.
Earlier, Pakistan chose to bat after winning the toss and scored 315 at the loss of nine wickets.
Chasing was not an option for Pakistan as then the net run rate differential margin with New Zealand was impossible to achieve batting second. Pakistan are currently on 9 points from 8 matches with 4 wins, 3 losses and one washout. Their current net run rate sits at -0.792 while New Zealand are at 0.175.
They made a remarkable comeback in the ongoing tournament but could not make it to the semis.
Earlier, Pakistan lost three of their first five matches with West Indies, India and Australia.
