NEW DELHI: Pakistan faces a critical juncture in the T20 World Cup, reeling from losses against the USA and India. Their upcoming clash with Canada holds immense significance, as a win is imperative for their Super Eight qualification hopes.
With a Super Over defeat against the USA and a six-run loss to India, Pakistan’s campaign has been marred by inconsistency and a lack of cohesion.Their chances now rest on securing comprehensive victories against Canada and Ireland, while also relying on other results to favour them.
Pakistan’s struggles extend beyond the field, with uncertainties surrounding Babar Azam‘s leadership and internal team dynamics adding to their woes. The team’s batting lineup, in particular, has faltered, with players like Fakhar Zaman and Imad Wasim failing to capitalize on opportunities.
Despite notable performances from bowlers like Naseem Shah and Mohammad Amir, Pakistan’s bowling attack needs to step up, especially premier fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi, who has yet to make a significant impact.

In contrast, Canada has shown resilience, bouncing back from a defeat against the USA to secure a crucial win against Ireland. Led by veteran batter Navneet Dhaliwal, Canada poses a formidable challenge, especially after posting a formidable total of 194 against the USA.
As Pakistan looks to salvage their campaign, they face a formidable opponent in Canada, who are determined to maintain their momentum in the tournament.
