As it was known earlier as well, the defeat to England today against India in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup match will benefit Pakistan and the Team India skipper acknowledged it by saying that Pakistan would be supporting them during the match.
The hopes of Pakistan cricket fans hangs on the outcome of the match today between hosts England and India. Hosts England have 8 points from 7 matches while as Pakistan have 9 points from 8 matches. If England loses both the matches then Pakistan have chances of making it to semifinal and if England loses only one out of two remaining matches then Pakistan need to win last match to qualify.
In both the cases Pakistan fans would be supporting Team India today to beat England. Speaking about this rare case Team India skipper Virat Kohli said, “It’s a crunch result for Pakistan as well. I’m sure the fans of the Pakistan team will be supporting us today which is quite a rare thing”.
