Even if they lose in Bangalore today, New Zealand will still have a chance to play in the semi-finals; But if Pakistan loses, there will be no hope. After playing seven matches, Babar Azam’s team is in sixth place in the World Cup points table with 6 points. New Zealand is fourth due to being ahead in run rate with 8 points in equal matches. They are followed by Afghanistan at number five with equal points. If they beat Pakistan today, the Kiwis will go a long way towards the semi-finals. But ahead of such an important match, fast bowler Matt Henry, who took 11 wickets, will not be able to play. After the scan, the report came that this World Cup is over for him. The New Zealand Cricket Board has announced that Kyle Jamieson has been selected to replace Henry. New Zealand coach Gary Steed said, ‘Henry’s injury was a concern. There is a match against Pakistan on Saturday (today). A bowler cannot go down to play that match with less. It will be risky. Henry is one of the key bowlers in our team in ODI cricket. Jamieson is coming. We are ready to welcome him. He will practice with us on Friday. Jamieson will be available for Saturday’s match. He practiced with us for two weeks before the competition. So it won’t be a problem if Jamieson suddenly comes to the team.’ Babar Azam will have a chance to beat New Zealand to reach the semi-finals today. However, the weather in Bengaluru does not bode well. The match will start at 11 am Bangladesh time in Bengaluru on Saturday. According to the weather forecast, rain is expected from 1 pm, which will last till 6 pm. There is a 68 percent chance of rain today. Pakistan’s losses are high if the game is canceled due to rain.
