So...the hosts are through. The formula of winning the toss and batting first is foolproof. But will it stand the test of the knockout pressure?? We shall find out.... for the time being. Favourites haven’t disappointed in the end. #CWC19 #EngvNZ— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) July 3, 2019
New Zealand have lost their last two games by a combined margin of 205 runs still they are miles ahead of Pakistan in NRR. That shows how terribly Pakistan played in the first game against West Indies. #CWC19— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) July 3, 2019
