T20 World Cup: Pakistan’s Chances in Super 8

Currently, all eyes are on the USA vs Ireland match to see if Pak gets a chance to make it in the Super 8. However, Even if the rain gods bless Pakistan and the game is played, Pak will need a miracle.

Pakistan needs Ireland to win the match and after that they will need to beat Canada (the match will happen in the same venue and rain will be a factor). If the Pakistan game gets washed out, USA will move ahead.

Team USA is on a strong playing spree and are a fav to beat Ireland. If USA beats Ireland, they will make it to the Super 8 and Pak will be knocked out.

So, it looks like Pakistan is very unlikely to make it to Super 8.
