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.
There is certainly no ‘I’ in team, but it just takes one moment of magic to separate the winners and losers in elite sport. This may play out to be true in the 2019 Cricket World Cup which is set to start on the 30th of May.
