In their final Super 12 match, Pakistan will face Bangladesh. Both teams must win if they are to have a chance of qualifying. However, their qualification will also be determined by the results of the other matches. If South Africa loses against the Netherlands, this game will become a virtual knockout, with the winner securing a semi-final berth.
Babar Azam and his team have finally found their rhythm, winning two games in a succession after losing their first two matches against India and Zimbabwe. A stunning win over South Africa may have strengthened their confidence, and they will now be hoping for good fortune on Sunday.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, enters this match after narrowly losing to India. Like Pakistan, Shakib Al Hassan’s team has a formidable bowling assault led by Taskin Ahmed, with Mustafizur Rahman and Hasan Mahmud also contributing. Bangladesh has a good chance of beating their Asian opponents if their batters perform well.
