Here Is How Pakistan Can Qualify For Semifinals

And if Pakistan bat first they need to make sure that they beat Bangladesh by a margin of 316 runs!

The teams are now at the 50-over World Cup in England and Wales, with the Kiwis poised to secure the fourth semi-final spot while Sri Lanka are out of the running and have one more group game against India on Saturday. But just a win won't do for Pakistan since they are behind the Kiwis on run rate.

So far, the tournament has been on its Sky Sports platform, which customers have to pay for monthly, but the broadcaster has announced plans to show it free should England beat New Zealand in the semi-final.

The first Test between New Zealand and their hosts will begin on August 14 in Galle while the final Test match will be played in Colombo's P. Sara stadium from August 22, Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.

Census Bureau Begins Printing Without Citizenship Question
Ross' decision came in response to last week's Supreme Court's decision that blocked the citizenship question , at least for now. The president said that the question is important and that his administration is still working on putting it on the census.

"We knew that these two games were must-win games if we were to give ourselves the best opportunity to get into the semi-finals because we knew the performances in the last couple of games hadn't been up to scratch", said Bairstow. The World Cup is no different. They beat South Africa and Afghanistan, pulled off a record chase against West Indies, showed several moments of brilliance in a big chase against Australia, and almost beat New Zealand. The 32-year-old left-arm all-rounder slammed over 500 runs and took 11 wickets in eight matches in the tournament with one game yet to be played. "We haven't chopped and changed them all that much".

"So removing a lot of those thoughts and perhaps bringing that mindset back to "What can I do for the team?" rather than "How can I feel good?" - that is something that is really important within our environment". So, for Pakistan dream of qualifying for semi-final is nearly over. "From the start I think it was the minimum requirement, the first stage we had to get to". After that, they lost the game to Australia which they should have won.

The wicket-keeper batsman, however, added that his side will go all-out against Bangladesh at Lord's on Friday to end the campaign on a high note. Mitchell Starc is having yet another dream World Cup.
