Will PAK Get Eliminated from T20 World Cup 2024 If IND Defeat Them?

On Sunday, India's cricket team will meet Pakistan in a high-voltage group-stage battle at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 in New York.

Before that much-anticipated showdown, everyone was curious to know what would happen if Pakistan lost on Sunday, June 9.

What if India defeats Pakistan?

Pakistan's path to this critical game has been rocky, with a painful loss to the host USA in a Super-Over thriller in Dallas on June 6. Pakistan's prospects of moving to the Super 8s have been jeopardised by their defeat to the United States, their second win. The top two teams proceed to the next round, with India and Pakistan joining the United States, Canada, and Ireland in Group A.

Given that this is the USA and Canada's first T20 World Cup appearance, and Ireland is a lower-ranked team, India and Pakistan were anticipated to advance easily. However, Pakistan's shocking setback has greatly increased the stakes for Sunday's encounter.

If Pakistan loses to India, it will be a difficult task to clinch a position in the Super 8. A defeat would limit Pakistan's possible points to four, whilst the USA may reach six points with one more win in their remaining two games, securing their passage to the next round.

This scenario would put Pakistan on the verge of being eliminated in the first round, something they have never experienced in T20 World Cup history. Such a result would be a major blow for captain Babar Azam and his teammates.

In contrast, India, who began their campaign with a victory over Ireland, appears to be the stronger team and is the favourite to win the forthcoming match.

A win for India would not only consolidate their standing in the group but would also significantly reduce Pakistan's chances of making it to the Super 8s.

Thus, the stakes are extremely high for Pakistan, as a loss on Sunday might result in an unprecedented early elimination from the competition.

Pakistan's performance in the USA vs PAK match

Pakistan is sometimes referred to as an 'unpredictable' squad due to the boom-or-bust style of cricket they play. On their best days, they can win games that would be difficult to win against any other team, demonstrating their status as one of the world's strongest. Nonetheless, on their worst days, they will extract a defeat from the mouths of victory against a lesser opponent, which is an extremely surprising outcome for a team of their calibre. Similarly, on June 6 (Thursday), they lost their opening match of the current T20 World Cup 2024 against co-hosts USA.

It was one of the most stunning defeats in cricket World Cup history, with the USA defeating Pakistan in a dramatic Super Over duel at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas after the match was locked at 159 runs. Following their setback, their followers and supporters filled social media with responses and memes, which quickly went viral.
