Pakistan will lock horns against Canada in their third match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Tuesday.

Pakistan are surely hitting rock bottom as they suffered defeats in the first two matches of the World Cup against the United States (USA) and India in Dallas and New York respectively and their chances of making way to the Super 8 of the tournament are now lingering on other results of the Group A games.

On the other hand, Canada made an impressive comeback after losing to the USA in their first match of the World Cup by beating Ireland on June 7 in New York and their skipper, Saad bin Zafar, sent a warning to the Green Shirts that they will come strong against them.

“It's one game — and one day — at a time, and we're going to come strong against Pakistan as well,” Saad bin Zafar had said after beating Ireland.

A win against Pakistan tomorrow would make things easier for Canada as they would have four points with just one more match to go. Their chances of qualifying for the T20 World Cup playoffs would still be alive. 

However, if Pakistan lose tomorrow, their campaign will be over as they will be officially eliminated with three successive losses.
