LONDON: Once again, we are at the crossroads where we are crunching the numbers and figuring out how the men in green can make it to the next round of the tournament.
Of course, making up scenarios, the comparison to the 1992 World Cup, and how the other teams will fare so that our team can make it to the next stage is all part of being a Pakistani fan.
So how does the Pakistani team make it to the next round of the tournament?
Underdogs Afghanistan are out of the tournament along with South Africa, which means any of the eight remain in contention for a spot in the World Cup.
New Zealand, Australia, England, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and West Indies still have three matches to play apart from India have four games to play for a place in the semi-finals.
For Pakistan to make it to the final three, they need to win their next three games. Losing even one of the games means Pakistan will be out of the tournament.
Winning our next four games that are against South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh will take our points tally from three to 11.
