    NRR is a major issue for Pakistan, should take full advantage here to fix that.

    Pakistan should chase it down with ease. Tbh, if you can't chase 227 against AFG, you have no right to be in the semis.

    There is no point on trying to fix nrr this late in the tournament. Only way for pak to qualify is by winning it all and hope that England screws one match out of two.

    Exactly what i just thought. No right for semis if we cannot chase this.. Chase and chase it under 40 overs to keep NRR in check for semis

    Its simple as this :

    If Pakistan can't chase this low total, then nobody should feel bad that they are out of semis. They would deserve whatever they get.

    Agree, a semi finalist should be able to chase 228 against Affhanistan.

    I think other teams missed the trick now bowling spinner against Fakhar in first over he is a walking wicket against slow bowlers.

    Fakhar will always fail if he continues playing unnaturally in a defensive way. He has become a jobber. He should swing hard right from ball one , otherwise he will fail most of the times.

    Why the hell did he waste the review? Embarrassing all around.

    This guy Mujeeb is the real threat from what I have seen. Rashid is dangerous if you try to go after him but this guy is tough.

    Babar usually doesn't start well versus spin.

    This Guy Fakhar is such a poor player. Even Mallik or Asif Ali could have done better than this hack

    How are you planning to blame it on Sarfraz don't you think batsman should be able to chase 228 on this wicket?

    There is clearly no bat involved there. Don't know why the umpire wasted so much time.
