Their opponents, Bangladesh, have also endured a fine campaign although the points table may not quite indicate that. The only games they struggled in were the matches against England and Australia but even then, didn't surrender without a fight. They also nearly shut out New Zealand, after having taken out South Africa in the Cup opener. Some minor blips cost them the game against the Kiwis and it's these moments of karma that eventually made the distinction. On the off chance that there was any existing talks of the minnow tag, they've certainly put that to rest. For them, it's about signing off with a win against an Asian neighbor. Pakistan too haven't been too bad but the magnitude of their misfortunes were huge, thereby hurting their net run rate. Irrespective of the context, this ought to be a fun contest. This is welcoming all of you from the Cricbuzz comm box. Sit back and make the most of our coverage of the game.
9:00 local, 8:00 GMT, 13:30 IST: You generally feel sad when your favorite TV arrangement is about to end. After all, they've given you a lot of entertainment and farewells are never pleasant. The 2019 World Cup is almost at the skirt of bidding adieu to its very own soap opera. Don't get me? I'm talking about The tales of 1992, the gigantic blockbuster arrangement that took shape after Pakistan had a game washed out and since then, there have so many coincidences for them with regard to their victorious 1992 campaign that it seemed like it was destiny. Unfortunately, we'll have to witness something beyond miraculous today for the sub-plot to continue. A win today will take Pakistan to 11 points, level with New Zealand but that won't do because of the massive net run rate distinction between the two sides. Such is the improbable nature that they don't stand a chance in the event that they happen to chase. Entireties it up, doesn't it?
The permutations are near on incomprehensible for Pakistan. In the event that Bangladesh win the toss and bat at Lord's on Friday, Pakistan cannot make the semi-finals. On the off chance that Pakistan bat first, and make 350, they would have to bowl Bangladesh out for 39 to overhaul New Zealand's net run-rate. Their goose is as good as cooked. Barring one of the most strange games in the history of ODI cricket, Pakistan will not make the semi-finals of this World Cup.
Bangladesh too are out after their defeat to India on Wednesday put an end to their chances, so in effect, this game is a dead-rubber. Both of these sides have had their moments over the past five weeks but neither have been quite consistent enough to get a top-four spot. Pakistan will regret their opening game thrashing by West Indies which put an immense dent in their net run-rate. On the off chance that they had been able to compete in that match, they would still have a realistic shot at the knock-out stages. Bangladesh will think back on their match against New Zealand as one that got away.
Both teams will want to end on a high. Bangladesh, who have never played an ODI at Lord's, have only at any point won three games in a single World Cup so to make it four this time around will be further proof of their advancement and a reminder that they have the right to be taken far more genuinely as a cricketing force than what is the case now. A victory for Pakistan would give them the same number of wins as New Zealand and a moral victory of being the best runners-up. Not much consolation but better than nothing.
The two teams have not seen quite a bit of each other of late. They have only played four times since the last World Cup and Bangladesh have won all of those matches, including their last meeting in the 2018 Asia Cup. Overall, however, Pakistan have won 31 of the 36 meetings between them, with their only other misfortune to Bangladesh coming way back in 1999.
Although the game lacks much context in terms of qualification, it will have plenty for a number of players will's identity playing their last World Cup game. Mashrafe Mortaza of Bangladesh, and Pakistani's Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez will certainly not be around in four years' time. All three have been fine servants to their countries and despite suffering a difficult time in this tournament, they have the right to a fitting send-off. And what better place to play your last World Cup match than at the Home of Cricket
