Pakistan team has won its first match in Super Four. The road to the final is the easiest for Pakistan. Now both his matches are against Sri Lanka and Afghanistan. Both the teams are weaker than Pakistan. If Pakistan wins the remaining two matches, then easily reach the final. If Pakistan loses the remaining two matches, then this team is sure to be out, because in this situation Pakistans run rate will be very bad. The situation can get complicated if Pakistan loses a match. Winning the remaining two matches of India is believed to be certain. In such a situation, India and Sri Lanka can play the final if Pakistan loses against Sri Lanka.
