Pakistani team coming home as their campaign ended on friday, 5th july 2019With fifth place on the points table, under New Zealand.Their hopes ended on a high with a 94-run victory against Bangladesh at Lord’s,

Pakistan won the toss and finished on 315-9 in 50 overs, Shaheen Afridi, the youngest to take a five-for at a world cup, named player of the match, flashily took six wickets, giving up just 36 runs — the best figures for a Pakistan bowler in the competition’s history.
“I’m happy for this performance. It’s a special feeling for me, my family, for all of Pakistan. The wicket was slow. The first innings Mustafizur bowled well using cutters and I thought I would use cutters,” said the teenage fast bowler in a post-match speech.

Earlier in the match, opener Imamul Haq scored 100 on 100 deliveries became the youngest Pakistani ever to make a World Cup ton.Babar Azam hit 96 on 98 deliveries as they set the Bangladeshis a target of 316 runs. Where as Bangladesh’s Shakib scored his seventh half-century of the tournament. Which made Shakib the highest-scoring batsman of the tournament with 606 runs.

Pakistan needed to dismiss Bangladesh in their last group-stage match for an improbable seven runs or less to overtake fourth-place New Zealand and reach the semifinals. Sarfaraz said although Pakistan’s first-game loss to the West Indies was “disappointing”, “we want to finish on a high note.”

Pakistan could not take 4th position in tournament because of the net run rate of +0.175 that New Zealand built up in their nine games which significantly better than Pakistan’s -0.430.
