Nasser Hussain’s question to Pakistan fans for India vs England puts him in a spot

first_imgFollowing back to back defeats in the last two World Cup games, England’s chances of making it to the semi-finals are in jeopardy. And Pakistan’s win over New Zealand on Wednesday has made the scenario much more difficult for England.With eight points from seven games, the Eoin Morgan-led side are currently placed fourth on the points table. And now, the equation for them is pretty simple. They need to win their remaining games in order to enter the knockout stages of the ongoing tournament.However, it would require a commanding performance from the pre-tournament favourites to overstage India and New Zealand, their opponents for the remaining two games. The record of England against these two teams is not good when it comes to World Cups. England have not been able to register World Cup wins against the Men in Blue and the Black Caps in the last 27 years.Ahead of England’s must-win clash against India, former skipper Nasser Hussain took to social media to ask Pakistani fans as to which team they would be supporting when the two teams meet on Sunday at Edgbaston.”Question to all Pakistan fans …England vs India…Sunday… who are you supporting?” tweeted Hussain on Thursday.Question to all Pakistan fans .. England vs INDIA .. Sunday .. who you supporting ?Nasser Hussain (@nassercricket) June 26, 2019In reply fellow commentators Kevin Pietersen and Isa Guha posted their own witty replies.When have you ever winked?Isa Guha (@isaguha) June 26, 2019Who you supporting, Nass?Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) June 26, 2019England of course Kev .. same as you when England play South Africa at rugbyadvertisementNasser Hussain (@nassercricket) June 26, 2019Following their victory over New Zealand, Pakistan have seven points from as many games. Their two remaining games are against Afghanistan and Bangladesh and if they manage to win both of them, they will end up on 11 points.In such a scenario, it becomes pertinent for England to win both their remaining fixtures as they would then reach 12 points and will qualify for the semi-finals. However, if they fail to register wins in any of the two matches, Pakistan will fancy their chances of making it to the knockout stages.Also, not to forget that Sri Lanka can also grab the fourth semi-final berth if they win all their remaining three games.Also Read | Watch: Pakistani and Indian fan’s bhangra after Pakistan victory is something you cannot missAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Babar Azam surpasses idol Virat Kohli to become second fastest to 3,000last_img
