Pakistan opener Imam-ul-Haq has vowed that the national team will give it their all in their must-win World Cup clash against Bangladesh at Lord’s on Friday.
With England beating New Zealand on Wednesday, Pakistan have to beat Bangladesh as it will then come down to the net run rate between them and New Zealand on which team clinches the last semi-final spot.
Australia, India and England have already booked their spots in the last four.
Knowing the precarious position Pakistan are in, Imam promised that the men in green will put everything on the line and do everything in their power to triumph over Bangladesh.
“We are not looking at the results of other games, we want to give our best against Bangladesh and whatever is required, we will do that,” Imam was quoted as saying by The News International.
He was further quoted by The National as saying: “We are not thinking on the lines of not reaching [the] semi-finals. Our plan is to play [for] the semi-final [spot] with an all-out effort and at the end if that doesn’t happen, then we have to play positive cricket and end on a high.”
