Are Pakistan out of the Cricket World Cup?

Pakistan are not technically out of the Cricket World Cup, but they need a mathematical miracle against already eliminated Bangladesh to go through.

How can Pakistan qualify for the Cricket World Cup semi-final?

Pakistan must beat the world record ODI cricket win (290 runs) to make it to the World Cup semi-final.

The full permutations are as follows:

  • If Pakistan score 350, they must win by 311 runs.
  • If Pakistan score 400, they must win by 316 runs.
  • If Pakistan score 450, they must win by 321 runs.
  • If Bangladesh win the toss and choose to bat, Pakistan are out before a ball has been bowled.
