Pakistan World Cup 2023 Semi-Final Qualification
Currently, Pakistan is placed at the fifth spot in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 points table and Team India is at the top spot. For Pakistan to qualify for the WC 2023 Semifinal, the Men in Green have to win their remaining two matches. To be precise, Pakistan must win their game against New Zealand and England. However, Pakistan's win will not be enough. Babar Azam & Co have to be dependent on other teams as well. Meaning, that for Pakistan to qualify World Cup 2023 semi-final, New Zealand must falter against Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This is how Pakistan can take the fourth spot in the points table and eliminate New Zealand from the World Cup 2023.
If Pakistan successfully gets the fourth spot, the Men In Green will lock horns with the team on the top spot of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 points table. Currently, Team India is placed at the pole position and if they continue to remain so, they will be facing the team at the fourth position at the iconic Eden Garden in Kolkata.
The possibility of another high-octane clash between India and Pakistan in the semi-finals has stirred the passions of cricket enthusiasts. India and Pakistan previously met in the round-robin stage, where India clinched a commanding victory over Pakistan by seven wickets. It's worth noting that India has an impeccable record against Pakistan in World Cup encounters, emerging victorious in all eight of their previous encounters.
