Friday was probably the biggest game of Pakistan’s tournament as they not only needed to defeat Bangladesh but they also needed to beat them by a large margin in order to qualify for the semi-finals.
It was match day 40 of the ICC Cricket World Cup on Tuesday which meant that the group fixtures were nearing an end. This also meant that the clash between India and Bangladesh was a game of utmost importance for both sides who still had a chance of reaching the semi-finals.
England has never won the ICC Men’s World Cup and the train to success might have looked to derail.
Trust Pakistan to pull off an upset by beating an immensely strong England side. They are probably the most unpredictable side at this years World Cup, especially after a poor first game loss to West Indies and now a great bounce back against England.
Anticipation was growing ahead of England’s World Cup opener at The Oval, and thanks to Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, that anticipation quickly turned into delight, as they both starred in a fantastic England win against South Africa.
