Can Pakistan qualify for super 8 after defeat against India?

Pakistan Qualifying Scenario in T20 World Cup 2024 Pakistan: (PAK) already lost both of its opening matches in the T20 World Cup 2024, which is extremely disappointing for their chances of qualifying for the Super 8 round in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Pakistan already lost both of its opening matches in the T20 World Cup 2024, which is extremely disappointing for their chances of qualifying for the Super 8 round in the T20 World Cup 2024. Pak team lost their T20 World Cup opening encounter against co-hosts USA in an unexpected loss that was immediately followed by another heartbreaking loss to their longtime rivals, India. In the last encounter between India vs Pakistan, Pak led by six runs for the majority of the innings but ultimately fell short because of some outstanding bowling from India’s Jasprit Bumrah.

Pak’s qualifying to make it to the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 stage is minimal since they have zero points from their first two matches. The team captained by Babar Azam has to win its remaining matches against Ireland and Canada. They then need to lose their next two games, against either USA or India. Additionally, they are hoping that the June 12 India vs. USA game doesn’t get washed out, which would mean that both teams would still qualify with a point. Finally, they require either Canada to defeat India or, in the event of a victory, for Canada to have a lower Net Run Rate (NRR) than Pakistan.

Qualifying for the Super 8 stage in this T20 World Cup will depend on Net Run Rate (NRR), even if Pakistan wins both games and the USA loses its remaining games. Pak would require many victories as both sides would have 4 points from four matches.
