Pakistan can only pray for lightning to strike Bangladesh, jokes Yousuf
Former Pakistan middle-order batsman Mohammed Yousuf has joked that only if lightning strikes the Bangladesh team, then only Pakistan can qualify for the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as beating the Bengal Tigers by 316 runs is not possible.
Although New Zealand suffered three games, they are currently two points ahead of fifth-place Pakistan, who will play Bangladesh on Friday. Pakistan need to bat first and beat Bangladesh by a margin of over 300 runs in their final group game to stand a chance of advancing to the knockouts.
While talking to a local news channel, Yousuf jokingly said that Pakistan is already out there are no doubts about it. But what if lightning strikes the Bangladesh team so that they are not able to play anymore or fall down. Or they become unfit all of a sudden. If such a situation arises only then can we qualify.
