Babar’s team is under pressure

The Pakistani team is under tremendous pressure at the moment. His way to the semi-finals is almost closed. If India had won the last match against South Africa, Pakistan’s hopes would have been more alive. Babar’s team has a world-class bowling attack, but the batting lineup could not do much. He had to face defeat against India and Zimbabwe.

South Africa would only like to win

South Africa is currently the topper in the points table of Group 2. After this comes India’s number. The African team has not lost any match in this tournament so far. He will maintain this momentum and would like to cement the semis ticket by winning against Pakistan. After Pakistan, this team also has to field against the Netherlands.
