10.30am start - technically Pakistan can still qualify for the semi finals, if they set a ridiculously high score and bowl Bangladesh out quickly for next to no runs ...or something similar?

No chance.
In reality the odds are so against that Pakistan probably wont even go for it.
Then need something like 400 (a WC record) then bowl out Bangladesh for 50 odd.
If this happened everybody would think that it has been fixed.
If they went for that they could be hammered. I reckon they will just try to win (18 off 5.5 hardly suggests that they are going for 400)

first wicket in the 8th ...Fakhir for 13 .... 10 overs in 38-1

doesnt look so far that Pakistan are even going to attempt to get 390-400

Bangladesh are no mugs.
So the game is likely to be pretty even. Pakistan need to absolutely annihilate them. Which is a million to one outside bet I reckon.

hmmm ...wasnt their captain was a bit of a mug in their last match ... effectively snatching defeat from the jaws of victory by selfishly put himself in to bowl (twice), instead of sticking with the then effective spin, and the amount of runs his 2 overs of bowling 'cost' probably lost the match for Bangladesh, from a position where it was finely poised?

that apart , I agree, as a team Bangladesh aint no mugs :sneaky:

Bangladesh's fielding has been awful.
Even then Pakistan need to get around 270 more from 24 overs!

100 from Imam. 23 years old. He looks a very good prospect.
He then steps on his own wicket and is out!

been a lot of that this CWC ... batsmen reaching 100 in an innings, then being dismissed very shortly after

Yes very true.
I guess that batsmen reaching 100 think that they have to put the foot down but often it appears that the softer ball is far more difficult to put away?

It's fair to say, these games feel kind of pointless and the crowds are showing it. Bring on the semi finals!
