A lot of stuff is going on due to Pakistan’s high-octane win over Australia on March 23. Now India have sealed a semi-final spot with three wins, Australia are all but out, while West Indies have become Pakistan’s closest rivals for a place in the last four.
Mohammad Hafeez, the Pakistan captain, said that all his team was thinking of was winning the next two games. On Sunday, they take on Bangladesh, the home side who have not turned up for their own party after losing to West Indies and India in Group 2.
“The picture is very clear in front of us,” Hafeez said on the eve of the match. “We have to win each and every game, but we will take it one at a time. We all know as a team that we can’t make any mistakes. We are ready for tomorrow’s game. In the last game, we pulled through a tough situation. Everyone showed great character, which helped us cross the line. It is a great sign for the team.
