World Cup 2023: Why could Pakistan’s semi-final task be difficult after Australia’s big win today? – Magazine Creations

Glenn Maxwell’s brilliant lead for Delhi and David Warner’s brilliant century followed by Adam Zampa’s brilliance helped Australia record the highest ever win in World Cup history, beating Netherlands by 309 runs at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Wednesday. The Australian team looked in fine touch as they torched the Netherlands with bat and ball. The winning margin of 309 runs is the largest ever in a Men’s Cricket World Cup and the second-largest ever in ODIs.

The huge win has put the chances of other teams in little jeopardy including reigning World Cup champions England and Pakistan.

Pakistan are currently in fifth place having played five matches and won only two of them and their current run rate is negative (-0.400). Pakistan’s upcoming matches include some strong teams like South Africa, New Zealand and England. The other team that Pakistan will face is Bangladesh. For any team to be certain of their place in the semi-finals, they need to win at least six matches, and for that to happen, Pakistan needs to win all their remaining matches and hope that the other teams at the top of the standings stumble badly.

Also, England’s condition does not look very positive because they have just won one match out of the four matches they have played and they will have to win the remaining matches and they have to defeat a team like India and Australia and get a big win against a team like India. Netherlands, which is what the Australian team did today. The current net employment rate in England is (-1.248).

Meanwhile, Agence France-Presse reported that Pakistan’s bowling had been touted as world-class ahead of the Asia Cup and when they restricted a strong India side to 266 in a failed match in Pallekele, commentators saw it as a major warning to the World Cup. His competitors.

But two weeks before the big event, key fast bowler Naseem Shah was ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Spinner Shaheen Shah Afridi has 10 wickets in five matches for India but has failed to make an early impact – his 2-36 against India and 5-54 against Australia came in losing causes. In the opening wins over Netherlands and Sri Lanka, he managed two wickets at a combined cost of 103 runs.
