Pakistan vs Canada (PAK vs CAN) ICC World Cup Live Cricket Score.
Pak vs Can: Pakistan lose 4 against Canada for 103, live cricket score. The beginning has been far from rosy for the Pakistan cricket team that has a habit of disappointing its fans all too often.
With a couple of awe-inspiring victories Pakistan has justified their tag as the ‘black horse’ of the World Cup. Captain Shahid Afridi led the team with a magnificent bowling attack to be the top wicket-taker so far. And today they take on Canada to end 12 years old wait for second round entry in the World Cup.
Their outstanding performance against Kenya and Sri Lanka has made them title favorites among cricket fans. Pakistan has displayed a thriller cricket despite the team was totally devastated thanks to spot fixing. Afridi could keep the hopes of the country which was suspended from the World Cup host list.
Canada on the other hand is struggling to keep alive in the mega event once they started their campaign with a couple of loss. Canada lost to Sri Lanka for 210 while Zimbabwe beat them for 175. The minnows will try to satisfy ICC which plans to shrink the WC to match winning teams.
However, Pakistan never wants to write-off any minnows like Canada. "Because of the importance of the tournament we are not going to take any team easy," Pakistan coach Waqar Younis said ahead of the game.
The former Pakistan cricketer expressed happy on teams’ performance against Sri Lanka but wants to keep the momentum ahead. He realizes that the gone is only the initial round and big ones are waiting for in the next round.
Pakistan has silenced the critics with unparallel team spirit and game strategy. Fellow teams have changed their perception over Pakistan which was struggling to find tune after a handful of internal and external traits.
Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara came to praise Pakistan as the 'dangerous side' after his side's 11-run defeat on Saturday. Pakistan enjoys the strong bowling combination lead by Afridi and Aktar.
