We are finally down to the last two days in the round-robin stage of ongoing Cricket World Cup, and the race to the semifinals is still alive, albeit it is more mathematical than practical. Pakistan and New Zealand are yet to get confirmation on their fate, and the same will be clear after tomorrow's game between Bangladesh and Pakistan. Considering the scenarios, however, the chances of Pakistan finishing within the top-four teams are next to zero. They'd not only need to win against Bangladesh but also win by a near 300-run margin. Also, if they happen to bat second, they'll be knocked out of the competition regardless of the result. Bangladesh, with the loss against India in their last match, are no longer in the hunt and will be looking to finish the tournament on a high. The two teams are set to meet at The Riverside Stadium, Chester-le-Street, Durham on 5th July.
Regardless of what happens in the next match, It's been a roller-coaster of a tournament for Pakistan. They've defeated the best of the sides in the competition but failed to show the same skill and resilience against the teams that have finished in the second half of the ladder.
They got off to a rather poor start in the tournament as they lost to West Indies in a one-sided encounter. Batting first, they were bundled out for 105 which were chased quickly by the Caribbean team. Just when things seemed to go haywire for them, they registered convincing wins over England, New Zealand, and South Africa to get back in the tournament. However, the margin of their victories wasn't as big as the matches they lost, which resulted in their inferior net run-rate.
They have been extremely unpredictable in the tournament with their bowlers and batsmen both having their moment of brilliance. The likes of Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Mohammad Amir were brilliant against Afghanistan and New Zealand, but their batting struggled to chase the target down in quick time despite the total being modest.
Their batting unit has been effective ever since introduction of Haris Sohail in the playing eleven and the results are evident of that. Babar Azam and Haris Sohail have been their best batsmen so far and a lot will depend on them for Pakistan to set-up a huge, probably 400+, total on Friday. All in all, they have a good batting lineup and a potent bowling attack and while they are perfectly capable to win the upcoming fixture, qualifying for the playoffs is expected to prove too big of an ask.

So close yet so far - the saying goes perfectly for Bangladesh with their close defeat to India. They were brilliant against India and looked well and truly in the hunt to keep their semi-final chances alive before Jasprit Bumrah wreaked them with three quick wickets.
Bangladesh, like they've been doing since a reasonably long time, have punched well above their weight in the tournament so far. They defeated South Africa with considerable ease and then went on to chase down a massive total against West Indies with plenty of overs to spare. Inability to close out games, however, has hurt them badly, resulting in early knockout from the tournament.
With 544 runs so far, Shakib Al Hasan has been a critical figure for them and is currently second in the list of highest scorers in the tournament. He's also done well with the ball and is within the top-ten players as far as most wickets in the competition is concerned. Mustafizur Rahman has been bowling well and has picked up a total of 15 scalps in the tournament, including a fifer against India the other day.
All in all, Bangladesh have done pretty well in the tournament so far with both their batting and bowling doing their respective parts. They were stranded inches short of India's target and will be looking to go the distance against Pakistan. Considering the form Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Mustafizur are in, beating them isn't going to be easy, let alone by 300 runs.

Winning the toss and batting first has been the go-to strategy for all the teams in all the matches played in the tournament of late. Also, Pakistan have no option but to bat first after winning the toss even to have a minuscule of a chance to qualify. Considering the slowness of the surfaces and the need of Pakistan to bat first, both the sides will be looking to bat first after winning the toss.

The surfaces in England are beginning to get increasingly slow with every passing match. Batting first and setting up a big total has been the way to go for all the teams in the last few matches as hitting the older ball in the second innings hasn't been easy. Having said that, a big total batting first is still a must considering the smaller grounds and flat batting surfaces. The team batting first will be looking to score a total of at least around 300 runs here.

This match against Bangladesh is a fixture of immense importance for Pakistan, but not so much for Bangladesh. Pakistan are still in it with a chance to qualify for the playoffs and will need to play out of their skins to beat Bangladesh by a margin of at least 308 runs, depending upon how much they score. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have nothing to lose and everything to gain in the upcoming match. With Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim in prime form coupled with a nothing to lose scenario and a Mission Impossible-esque situation for Pakistan, Bangladesh start as favorites to win the upcoming fixture and finish fifth on the points table.
