With the green jerseys one win away from advancing to the semi-finals, Pakistan’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals are not only solid but strengthened, but they will have to pray that the match between New Zealand and Sri Lanka is a good one. If Sri Lanka wins, if the Kiwis win, Pakistan will need to win by a huge margin against England.
