The start of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 (#CWC15) was really not encouraging for Pakistan. Pakistan won its first game against the arch rival India and than they also lost another match against slightly weaker opposition West Indies. After these two blows, the Pakistani cricket fans lost hope of Pakistan in #CWC15.
Meanwhile Pakistani cricket management including the Manager of Pakistani team, Captain and coach as well as the top management had to bear lots of criticism from Pakistani media as well as people of Pakistan. Media gone to extent of auditing the accounts of PCB (Pakistan Cricket Board) to show how much money (billions) were wasted for nothing.
I am not sure that was due to pressure described above, the things started looking up for Pakistan from that point onwards. Pakistan than won four games in row until now. One of them was a big game against a stronger team South Africa. So that way Pakistan survived in Cricket World Cup 2015 and qualified for Quarterfinal stage. Which at a point look difficult.
Now here we are ready to play our Quarter final against Australia. Our hopes are much higher as compared to earlier. After winning from South Africa our team proved that they can do upsets and claim the top place. However, we are going into Quarterfinal game with some setbacks like, Irfan, the top Pakistani bowler is injured and will not be able to play today. Also, we hope that our Misbah-Ul-Haq plays with less dot balls and keeps his run rate high. He is known for making good score in every game but have a much lower strike rate due to dot balls he just plays towards the fielders.
Anyways, Best of Luck Team Pakistan for the #CWC15 Quarterfinal Game. Do Follow us on twitter and Facebook from options on right side of this page, to stay updated with latest and useful from Pakistan. Do share your opinions in comments section below.
