English Skipper rings the alarm bells for Pakistan ahead of crucial match

English captain rang the alarm bell for the Pakistani team to reach the semi-finals. According to details, England cricket team captain Jos Buttler has stated that after a dismal performance in the ongoing World Cup in India, the team is determined to improve and secure a spot in the top 8 teams on the points table to play the Champions Trophy in 2025.

Speaking to the media on Thursday, Jos Buttler mentioned that they did not perform well in this tournament as they had hoped, but with a strong performance, they aim to move forward against Pakistan. He expressed that everyone might be worried, but the players are working hard, indicating a determination to correct things through rigorous training.

Jos Buttler said they didn't play the way they wanted to but emphasized the importance of the next match. He stated that it's crucial for them to be there for the important match.

It is clear that for the national team to reach the final four, they need to make history in Kolkata against Bangladesh.

After defeating Sri Lanka in Bangalore, New Zealand has practically secured a place in the semi-finals. Following the victory against Sri Lanka, New Zealand is currently in fourth place on the points table with 10 points and the best net run rate of 0.7, while Pakistan is in fifth place with 8 points and a net run rate of 0.04.

For Pakistan to reach the semi-finals, they need to defeat England by 287 runs or achieve the target set by England in just 16 balls, otherwise, Pakistan's journey in the current World Cup will come to an end.

The toss for the match against England will also be crucial for Pakistan. If Pakistan loses the toss and England chooses to bat first, the possibility of reaching the semi-finals will practically end when the toss takes place. It is clear that Pakistan and England will face each other at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Saturday, November 11th, for their last match in the group stage of the ongoing World Cup.
