    play with 5 pacers and get your azz handed to you. Why do you think that pacers are the only bowlers that can damage the opposition. If you haven't watched todays game then let me clue you in,
    https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/27062228/second-spinner-saved-new-zealand-admits-santner

    And it really was a spinners pitch in the 2nd half, just because you can't play against fast bowlers doesn't mean that nobody can. Infact the goras prefer to face fast bowlers then the spinners. 2 spinners are a must in a team.

    World Cup 2019: Is Pakistan vs India semi-final likely?

    After the nail-biting match between arch rivals India and Pakistan at Old Trafford on Sunday, June 16, it seems as if the two teams are likely to face each other yet again if they are able to make it to the coveted top four of the ICC World Cup 2019.

    If the two neighbours do in fact clash, Pakistan is likely to adopt an aggressive approach against the Indian team.

    Ever since Pakistan has started encountering a 'must win' situation in the tournament, almost all the players have assumed their respective responsibilities to take the team to the winning stand in each match.

    This is evident from Sarfaraz and Co's victory against South Africa at Lord's firstly, and then the unfathomable triumph over the unbeaten New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.

    In order to be a part of the semi-finals, the Green Shirts are yet to beat Bangladesh and Afghanistan in their next two matches.

    With New Zealand out of the way, Pakistan must win against Afghanistan and Bangladesh. If they win all the matches, Pakistan will end up with 11 points.

    Pakistan's inclusion in the top four is also dependent on England losing either against India or Australia as well as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka's defeat in at least one match.

    Top read: Can Pakistan reach World Cup semi-finals?

    For Pakistan to qualify for the semis, they would need Bangladesh to lose at least one match, apart from the one they would face Bangladesh in.

    Meanwhile, India that are staggering in this year's World Cup campaign, will have to take down England, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to become number 1.

    The defeat of the said three teams can increase the chances of India coming to face Pakistan in the semis even more.

    Needless to say both the teams will have to win all the upcoming matches lined up for them and they could actually compete against each other in a match worth watching for audiences residing in both the cricket-mad nations.

    As per the semi-final schedule, the team positioned at number 1 of the points table clashes with the one at the fourth spot in the ICC World Cup, with number 2nd and 3rd team contending against each other for the final.

    Meanwhile, the team that has already registered their place in the World Cup semis is Australia. Whereas, India and New Zealand are in need of one win each. Afghanistan, West Indies and South Africa are already out of the prestigious tournament.

    Let's see how it goes today. Unpredictable Pak vs rising Afghans. If Pakistan plays to its potential, they can make short work of Afghan side but if they get complacent thinking of Afghan as weak side, the opposite is quite possible too. Best of luck to both.

    Seems like match is gonna be one sided. Afghanistan batsmen got the intent but lacking skill and temperament. Might lose big. 3 down.

    NZ playing like usual Pakistan, three catches dropped by them despite fortune favoring them. Could have bundled Aussie under 150 but now if they lose, they have themselves to blame but at least the match remains interesting. Pak-Afg match has 1.5 million viewer on Hotstar while Aus-NZ has only about 650-700k viewers.

    Both Khawaja and Carey running toward century. 188 for 5.

    BD has 7 pts after 7 matches. Their next w Pak and Ind, which they most probably loose and will be out of WC.
    For the 4th semifinal team, Contest bw Pak, NZ, AND ENG. If Eng loose 1 and win 1, Pak and NZ will be amongst 4 semifinalist.
