New Zealand Posted A Massive Total 401 In A Must-Win Match for Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2023

New Zealand once again posted a mammoth total on the board. They have scored 401 runs in their allotted 50 overs and will be very difficult for Pakistan to chase down this total. In a do-or-die situation, such a huge total can be lethal. Looking at Pakistan’s batting lineup one would say it is almost impossible for Pakistan to get over the line. 402 runs to be chased down in 43 overs if Pakistan wants to meet the run rate criteria which is looking almost impossible at the moment.

Babar won the toss and decided to bowl first which was the biggest mistake Pakistan made right from the start by letting New Zealand in on such a flat surface. His decisions sometimes look very ordinary and can cost Pakistan the World Cup 2023. He should be proactive and need to make brave decisions. 

Bowling wavered from all the bowlers. Shaheen gave 90 runs without picking a single wicket. Haris Rauf and Hasan Ali were also expensive. Haris Rauf gave 85 runs in his 10 overs spell. Hasan Ali the 4th seamer of the side also proved very expensive by giving away 82 runs. The only bowler who bowled well in this match is Muhammad Wasim. He bowled 10 overs and got 3 wickets for 60 runs. 

If Pakistan loses today, 4 teams will be out of the World Cup. Here are the teams that will be out of the World Cup 2023, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Netherlands, and England.
