Winning the toss was crucial for Pakistan’s chances to make it into the 2019 Cricket World Cup semi-finals, even if it is deemed an almost impossible task against Bangladesh in their final group match at Lord’s in London.
Never the less Pakistan’s batsmen are expected to come out with all guns blazing against the Bangladesh bowling line-up. Pakistan’s highest total in World Cup history is 349 and the highest Bangladesh has conceded is 386 which happened earlier in the tournament against England.
If the pitch favours the batting a 350-plus score is possible but Pakistan batsmen will have to give it their all to post such a total.
Bangladesh bowlers Mustafizur Rahman and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan will be the ones to watch out for.
