England vs Pakistan Live Score Updates: ENG vs PAK, The stage is set for a ‘do or die’ clash for Babar Azam-led Pakistan as the team faces defending champions England. Pakistan’s semi-final dream is still possible, but practically they need a near-impossible victory against England to make that possibility a reality. Skipper Babar Azam sounded optimistic in the pre-match press conference, but the figures are just crazy. The ENG vs PAK ICC World Cup clash will finalize the top 4 teams, who will move to the knockout stages on 15th and 16th November.
Pakistan needs to defeat England by 287 runs while batting first or 284 balls to spare while chasing in order to think about the semi-finals. Now, this makes it clear that in case Babar Azam manages to win the toss, he has to opt for batting and should target a 400+ score in England to even think about winning today’s match.
