Pakistan Vs Bangladesh CWC19 Match 43 Result
Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat first in the 43rd match of World Cup 2019.
Pakistan beat Bangladesh by 94 runs in their last World Cup group match. But that was not enough to qualify for the semi-finals as New Zealand made it through the net score. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s team needed to break the world record for victory on an international day after winning the draw to keep that dream alive. Shaheen Afridi, a teenager, took six wickets while Pakistan easily won the match to finish on 11 points and won (five positions) with New Zealand (fourth position), placing them out of the top four in because of their low rate of growth.
The other teams in next week’s semi-finals are Australia, India, and England. Pakistan, backed by thousands of passionate fans, started curiously slowly, crawling to 38-1 after 10 overs. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam ended up with a partnership of 150 for the second wicket with 146 balls. But they both fell one after the other to succumb to speed. Imad Wasim, who scored 43 points from 26 balls, improved the score, but Pakistan lacked the physical strength to take cover. Mustafizur Rahman took five wickets for Bangladesh, including a superb catch and defeated to send Shadab Khan away. In response, Shakib Al Hasan recorded his seventh World Cup fifty to climb to the top of the tournament scoring table.
Bangladesh lost wickets at regular intervals and was eliminated for 221 at the end of the match. While teenager Shaheen regained the best numbers of all time for Pakistan at a 6-35 World Cup. Sadly, Pakistan paid the heavy price for a slow start to the World Cup campaign, winning only one of its first five matches. Pakistan lost their first game by 105 runs. They came back strong to beat South Africa, New Zealand, and Afghanistan and take fifth place. Bangladesh finished the group stage of 10 teams in seventh place with three wins in nine matches.
