How can the Pakistan Cricket Team still qualify for the World Test championship final 2023
Pakistan Cricket team can still qualify for the World Test Championship Final that will be played in 2023 in England.
Pakistan has lost 4 test matches at home in the ongoing World Test Championship cycle 2022-2023. The recent defeat in the test series against England has narrowed down the chances for Pakistan to qualify for the final.
But, the Pakistan Cricket team can still qualify for the Final of the World Test Championship, and for that, they need some results from other teams in their favor.
Pakistan Cricket Teams Qualification Scenario for World Test Championship Final 2023
The details for Pakistan’s wanted results are given below:
According to ICC:
If Pakistan can win their final two Test matches this period – they host New Zealand in a quickfire series that commences later this month – they can finish with a win percentage as high as 47.62 percent.
That could be enough for them to finish in front of seven other sides and claim second place on the final standings, but this is what also needs to occur:
- Australia will be their best ally as they will require Pat Cummins’s side to continue on their winning ways against South Africa and then next year against India
- They will need Bangladesh to do them a favor and cause a huge upset by defeating India in their ongoing Test series in Mirpur
- They will need New Zealand to defeat Sri Lanka in both of their Test matches in March next year
- They will require the West Indies to defeat South Africa in one of the two Tests away from home next year and then hope the second match ends as a draw (this would ensure both sides finish lower than Pakistan on the standings)
