Sport: Pakistan Claims Victory over Bangladesh to Stay Afloat in World Cup


Pakistan’s former champions kept their hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the 50-overs World Cup alive with a convincing seven-wicket victory against Bangladesh. Bangladesh struggled from the start and could only manage to post a modest 204 runs before being all out. Pakistan’s pace attack, led by Shaheen, impressed with both the new ball and in the death overs. Pakistan comfortably chased down the target with Fakhar Zaman and Abdullah Shafique both scoring half-centuries. This victory has revived Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals, although they still need to win their remaining matches and rely on other results. Unfortunately, Bangladesh has become the first team to be knocked out of the tournament, securing only one win in their seven games. Pakistan’s dominant performance was marked by Shaheen’s three-wicket haul and Zaman’s explosive batting. Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, remains hopeful that his team can make it to the semi-finals despite the odds stacked against them.
