England vs Pakistan Live Score Updates: ENG vs PAK, Pakistan set for near-impossible mission against England

England vs Pakistan Live Score Updates: ENG vs PAK, The stage is set for a ‘do or die’ clash for Babar Azam-led Pakistan as the team faces defending champions England. Pakistan’s semi-final dream is still possible, but practically they need a near-impossible victory against England to make that possibility a reality. Skipper Babar Azam sounded optimistic in the pre-match press conference, but the figures are just crazy. The ENG vs PAK ICC World Cup clash will finalize the top 4 teams, who will move to the knockout stages on 15th and 16th November. 

Pakistan needs to defeat England by 287 runs while batting first or 284 balls to spare while chasing in order to think about the semi-finals. Now, this makes it clear that in case Babar Azam manages to win the toss, he has to opt for batting and should target a 400+ score in England to even think about winning today’s match.

Jos Buttler-led England has been a disaster in the ICC World Cup 2020, but in their previous match against the Netherlands, the team has shown the potential of defending champions and will definitely make Pakistan’s job more difficult as their Champions Trophy 2025 qualifications depend on today’s victory.

England vs Pakistan Live: Wasim Akram trolls Babar Azam’s team when asked how Pakistan can reach semi-final

England vs Pakistan Live: Pakistan were hoping for a wash-out as New Zealand faced Sri Lanka on November 9. Weather predictions for Bengaluru were encouraging for them as well. New Zealand failing to get to 10 points would have meant a smoother journey for the Men in Green. However, nothing of that sort happened. New Zealand beat Sri Lanka by 5 wickets, boosting their chances of making it to the World Cup semi-finals. Trent Boult’s impressive bowling helped limit Sri Lanka to 170 runs. Devon Conway and Rachin Ravindra’s solid start made chasing this score easier.

Now, for Pakistan to advance, they must win decisively against England. How decisively? Well, as per rough estimates, they need to win by 287 runs if they bat first or reach their target with 284 balls remaining if they are chasing. Read More
