Pakistan spinner Imad Wasim is optimistic that his side can still reach the semi-finals at the World Cup.
Imad’s comments come after Pakistan lost to India by 89 runs via the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method in their World Cup clash on Sunday.
While Imad admitted that the loss hurt the men in green as they have now won one of their five World Cup games so far, he insisted that there is still a chance of Pakistan booking their spot in the last four.
“This was a really, really disappointing result for us,” he was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s website. “When we came back on after the rain there was very little we could do, but we know we have four matches left and if we win those, we still have a chance.
“Results of the other countries may come into play. From our point of view, we can only do what we can. What is in our hands is to try to win all four games and take it from there.”
Pakistan’s next World Cup game will be against South Africa at Lord’s on Sunday.
