PAKvsCAN - (X.Com)PAKvsCAN - (X.Com)

In a do-or-die tie for both teams, Pakistan and Canada will lock horns against each other on June 11 at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York. It will be only for the second time in their history that these two teams  will square off against each other. The only time they faced each other in the shortest format of the game was in 2008 when Pakistan emerged victorious in a low-scoring thriller. 

Talking about the present scenario, Pakistan have hit rock bottom as they suffered an embarrassing defeat against India. Now, the Men in Green are placed fourth in Group A with two defeats in two games. Meanwhile, Canada are fresh off a win against Ireland and placed 3rd on the points table with one win in two matches. This article will focus on the preview, pitch report, and playing XI of the upcoming match. 

Team Preview


It is a must-win match for Pakistan as a defeat would see them crash out of the tournament. Their latest defeat came against India, where the batters let them down. After facing embarrassment in the opening match, the Men in Green bowlers made Indian batters sweat for runs and restricted them to a total of 119 runs. However, the middle-order batters became a laughing stock as Pakistan failed to chase 120 runs in 120 balls. 

Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, and Imad Wasim's display in this World Cup has come under scrutiny as they have surrendered on a challenging surface. The bowlers are the only positives for Pakistan at the moment, as Naseem Shah is breathing fire. While Haris Rauf is leaking runs but taking crucial wickets as well. 

In the upcoming match against Canada, the Babar Azam-led side needs to show agressive intent and not succumb to pressure, which they usually have in important games. Saim Ayub is one explosive batter who is on the bench as Pakistan opted for Babar and Rizwan to open. It is to be seen whether they bring in the left-hand batter for the upcoming match.


Canada bounced back in the tournament after defeat in the first match by beating Ireland in their latest game. The batters are on song for the Men in Red, as Canada became the first team to win a match batting first at the Nassau Cricket Stadium after a win over the Irish. Even against the USA, Canada put on a great show with the bat and scored 194/5.

Thus, the upcoming tie against Pakistan would be a great match-up between bat and ball. To not take away the credit from the Canadian bowlers, the spinners are doing well including their skipper Saad Bin Zafar.
