Pakistan cricket team performed very poorly in the ongoing ICC world cup but standing on the 5th place in the points table with 9 points it still stands a chance to reach in semifinals. However, the road to semifinals for Pakistan is very difficult, almost next to impossible. But if Pakistan team defeats Bangladesh by a huge margin of more than 300 runs, it will book its seat in the next round.
An interesting part of this theory is (theory because it is practically impossible) if Bangladesh wins the toss and decides to bat first, Pakistan will lose its chance to reach semifinals even before throwing the first ball. But the skipper is quite optimistic about it.
However, cricket fans are quite sure that Pakistan has already lost its chance even before playing. Twitterians are sharing jokes and memes on Pakistan’s “mission impossible”.

Done more maths. Pakistan have to bat first and score a minimum of 308. If they score 308 they have to bowl Bangladesh out for 0. GAME ON. NET RUN RATE ZINDABAD! #PAKvBAN #BANvPAK #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/CHDx3q2UpU

If Pak bowl first, they will be out of the semi-final race even before the first ball is bowled at Lord's on Fri pic.twitter.com/6ynCbUFb2X
