Pakistan have an impossible task of beating Bangladesh by 316 runs in their last ICC World Cup 2019 match to be played at Lords, London on July 5, 2019. The match starts at 2:30 PM PKT. The match, in all probabilities, is going to be a dead rubber.

If Bangladesh wins toss and bat first, Pakistan will be eliminated instantly from the tournament. There is realistically no chance of either side making it to the semi-finals.

Both sides would like to finish their World Cup by a winning note. So a tough game is expected today.

If Pakistan bat first, and score 350 runs, they would have to bowl out Bangladesh out for just 39 runs to overtake New Zealand's net run-rate. These stats are almost impossible to achieve in a world cup game.
