Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed says his side can still qualify for the World Cup semi-finals after Sunday’s defeat to India. Pakistan suffered an 89-run defeat at Old Trafford on Sunday as the DLS method was used in the rain-marred match.
Sarfaraz’s side have just three points to show from five games so far and sit in ninth spot in the table, above only Afghanistan, but the skipper is convinced they can still reach the next stage of the tournament – if they win their four remaining matches.
“It is definitely getting tougher and tougher but we have four matches and hopefully we’ll win all four of them,” he said Sarfaraz after the match in Manchester. Pakistan are next in action on June 23 when they face South Africa at Lord’s, before they complete the group stage with games against New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.
