Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed firmly believes that his side can win their remaining two group stage matches and qualify for the World Cup semi-finals.
The men in green kept their hopes of reaching the last four alive with a six-wicket win over New Zealand at Edgbaston on Wednesday.
Pakistan’s win also snapped New Zealand’s undefeated streak in this World Cup as prior to the match, they have won five out of their six games, while their clash against India was washed out.
Pakistan’s next opponent will be Afghanistan, who they will play at Headingley on Saturday.
After that, Sarfraz’s side will take on Bangladesh at Lord’s on July 5.
However, even if Pakistan do win both of their remaining group stage matches, it may not be enough to get them into the semi-finals as they will need to rely on the results of some of the other games.
Despite this, Sarfraz is confident that his team will make it to the last four.
“We are very confident and hopefully we will do very well in the next two matches,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.
