Pakistan Cricket Team Finally Qualified for the T20 World Cup 2022 Semi Final
Failures in Start of Tournament
Pakistan faced India in their first encounter on October 23, 2022, at the start of the Super 12 stage of the competition, and India won by 4 wickets. Pakistan played their second match against Zimbabwe, losing by one run. It was a thrilling encounter, but not what Pakistani fans expected from their cricket squad.
After losing these two games, Pakistan’s team was in a difficult position to qualify for the Semi-Finals. Following the current perilous position, the remaining three matches are important for Pakistan to win.
Come Back of Pakistan Cricket Team
From now on, the Pakistan squad has suddenly followed up with such a spectacular success against the Netherlands, winning by 6 wickets and continuing their victory after beating South Africa and Bangladesh in a row, by 33 runs (DLS Method) and 5 wickets, respectively.
Situation for Team to Qualify
Even if Pakistan won these three matches, they would not be able to advance to the T20 World Cup 2022 Semi-Finals unless the Netherlands defeated South Africa or Zimbabwe defeated India, both of which had slim chances of happening. However, a miracle occurred on November 6, 2022, when the Netherlands defeated South Africa by 13 runs.
This advances Pakistan to the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finals, where they will face New Zealand on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.
