Pakistan is in big trouble. Yes, Babar Azam’s team’s chances of reaching the final of the World Test Championship are now hanging in the balance. A little over a week ago, Pakistan was in control of their fortune. They had five home test matches scheduled, albeit against strong opponents such as England and New Zealand, and the Asian giants had a good chance of securing one of the two spots available for the WTC final. But after narrowly losing the Multan test against England, having already slipped in the first test at Rawalpindi, Pakistan have not only conceded a home run but ensured that their fate is no longer in their own hands.

Pakistan fell to sixth place in the WTC standings after the defeat and with three games to go (1 against England and 2 against New Zealand), Babar Azam’s men know not only to play them all, but also hope that other results will reach their goal. way.


One would be India to lose both Tests against Bangladesh which looks a bit tough despite the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma (1st Test) from the team.

The result in Multan means India can now make it to the final even if they lose one of the four Tests at home to Australia. But if Rohit Sharma’s team is to hold out hope for that by the time they host the Baggygreens in February, they must first blank Bangladesh in the next two games.

Another pivotal series in all of this is the one between Australia and South Africa. India would hope that the Proteas are wiped out at home by the Aussies, further improving their chances of jumping them into second place.

There will be many permutations and combinations in the next two months, making Test Cricket even more interesting for the purists.
