The Men in Green entered the tournament as favourites, boasting impressive wins against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka in the initial matches. Optimism ran high, and history was scripted with a monumental chase against Sri Lanka. However, their campaign took an unexpected turn after a crushing defeat to arch-rivals India at Narender Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Consecutive losses to Australia, Afghanistan, and South Africa shattered their hopes of a semifinal spot. The Men in Green found themselves in a precarious situation, with their fate hanging on the outcomes of other matches. A late resurgence against Bangladesh and New Zealand injected a glimmer of hope, but the odds remained stacked against them.

As the curtains draw on Pakistan's World Cup journey, their last hurrah comes against defending champions England at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It's a chance for redemption, a shot at ending the campaign on a positive note. The clash against Jos Buttler's side is a litmus test, demanding strategic brilliance and stellar performances from key players.
