Pakistan were crashed out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 due to their net run-rate on Friday despite defeating Bangladesh in last group match.

Meanwhile, Pakistan had claimed a win over the Black Caps in the tournament. Many cricketing greats including former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith, ex-England captain Micheal Vaughan, commentators Ramiz Raja and Alan Wilkins have criticized the net run-rate system as a means of deciding which teams will play the World Cup semi-finals.

It is pertinent to mention here that Australia, India, hosts England and New Zealand managed to qualify for the semi-final stage of this year’s World Cup.
