Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has admitted that his side will struggle to qualify for the World Cup semi-finals if New Zealand don’t beat England on Wednesday.
If England triumph, then Pakistan have to beat Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday and it will come down to the net run rate between them and the Black Caps.
“I just hope New Zealand get it done for us,” Arthur was quoted as saying by Sport24. “If New Zealand don’t (win) then we hope England win by a big-enough margin and then we calculate what we have to do with our net run-rate, which I think is probably too much.”
