'Mission impossible' remained unaccomplished for Pakistan, who expectedly missed the semifinal bus but wrapped up their World Cup campaign with a consolatory 94-run win over Bangladesh.
Aware that the situation demanded them to beat Bangladesh by 300-plus runs to make it to the knockout stage, Pakistan needed to put on board a total of no less than 450 to stand a chance.
The way Pakistan batted, it seemed the 1992 champions were resigned to the fact that such a mammoth victory would remain out of their reach and it was business as usual for them.
India along with Australia, England and New Zealand will feature in the semi-finals of the ongoing World Cup 2019.
While India, Australia and England had already booked their place in the semis, New Zealand were left to wait till the end of Pakistan's last league fixture against Bangladesh to confirm their spot in the top-four.
While all the four teams semi-finalists have been confirmed now, India and Australia, still have a match remaining to decide who will top the World Cup 2019 points table.
