Pakistan is undefeated in the T20 World Cup 2021 and was the first team to reach the tournament’s semi-finals following Super 12 victories over India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, and Namibia.
Pakistan will face Scotland, who have already been eliminated from the tournament, this Sunday in Sharjah. Despite the fact that the Men in Green were the first to book their spot in the semi-finals, it is still unknown who they will face.
The Super 12 stage is divided into two groups. The team that finishes first in each group will face the team that finishes second in the other group’s points table.
Despite losing to South Africa in Sharjah, England won Group 1, with Australia finishing second.
In Group 2, Pakistan currently leads, with New Zealand in second place.
There are two possibilities for who Pakistan will face in the semi-finals:
If Pakistan maintains its unbeaten record and defeats Scotland today (Sunday), it will face Australia in Dubai.
If New Zealand defeats Afghanistan and Pakistan defeats Scotland, the Black Caps will take the lead in the points table, while the Men in Green will fall to second. In this case, Pakistan will face England in Abu Dhabi.
Regardless of the outcome of Pakistan’s match against Scotland, if Afghanistan defeats New Zealand and India comprehensively defeats Namibia, Pakistan will be table toppers and will face Australia. However, the semi-final will see India and England in action, in case of India qualifying for the final fours.
