PAK vs ENG: Pakistan seems to be in trouble after the side lost to England in the second test. Post the loss, Babar Azam’s men have weak chances of reaching the World Test Championship (WTC).

More than a week back, the Pakistan cricket team was pretty much in control of its fortunes. Pakistan had five home Test matches coming up, that were scheduled to be played against tough oppositions like England and New Zealand. Considered one of the biggest teams in Asia, they had a good chance of claiming one of the two spots available for the WTC Final.

However, the team narrowly lost the Multan Test against England, which has led to the chances slipping out of their hands. Further, the team has already slipped up in the first Test at Rawalpindi.

With that, Pakistan have not only conceded a home series but have made sure that their fate does not favour them any further.

Consequently, Pakistan also slipped to the sixth spot on the WTC leaderboard due to the loss. The team still has three matches to go, 1 against England and 2 against New Zealand each.

By now the men know that they need to not only win all these three games but also hope that the results of the other teams favour them, for them to qualify.  

One of these results includes for India Cricket Team to lose both their upcoming Tests against Bangladesh. India’s loss seems a little difficult currently, despite the absence of their star performances Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma from the team.

Additionally, the result in Multan also implies that India now can make it to the finals of WTC even if they lose one of the four Tests to be held in India against Australia.

But for the men in blue to stay hopeful by the time they host Pakistan in February, India needs to first beat Bangladesh in the two upcoming test matches.

Apart from that, another crucial series would be the one scheduled to be played between Australia and South Africa.

India would hope the Proteas will be swept away by the Aussies at home, which will increase their chances of leaping onto the second spot.

However, there are a lot of permutations and combinations that will be involved in deciding the results in the upcoming two months. All these competitions will make Test cricket even more interesting and watch-worthy in the coming months for the purists.
