Hilarious suggestions as Pakistan face almost impossible task of reaching semis

  • Australia, India and England have already qualified for the World Cup semifinal
  • Pakistan are not mathematically out of the running to make the semifinals but they would have to beat Bangladesh by a monumental margin

After England beat New Zealand at Chester-Le-Street coupled with England beating India at Old Trafford, Pakistan’s chances of reaching semi finals are slim, to say the least.

Pakistan are not mathematically out of the running to make the semifinals but they would have to beat Bangladesh by a monumental margin to reach the final four of the ICC cricket World Cup 2019.

The Semi finals will be played at Old Trafford, Manchester and Edgbaston on Tuesday and Thursday, while the final will be played on Sunday at Lord’s

Here is a list of some improbable scenarios that need to happen for Pakistan to qualify for the last four.

  • by 311 runs after scoring 350;
  • by 316 runs after scoring 400;
  • by 321 runs after scoring 450;
  • If Bangladesh opt to bat, Pakistan's hopes will be over even before the first ball is bowled at the Lord's

Fans though, have always been an optimistic bunch and haven’t given up and have come up with some outrageous even hilarious scenarios on Twitter for Pakistan to qualify for the semifinal of the World Cup.

Some of them will leave you in splits
