Pakistan finds itself on the brink of elimination from the World Cup 2023, with the team needing a decisive victory against England to secure a spot in the semi-finals.

As England took to the crease and set a target for Pakistan, the equation for qualification became even more complex. The Pakistani team now faces a nail-biting scenario where every run and every ball could be the difference between a spot in the semi-finals and an early exit from the tournament.

The qualification scenarios are as follows:

- If England manages to score 50 runs, Pakistan will need to chase the target in a mere 2.0 overs.

- For a score of 100 by England, Pakistan's chase time tightens to 2.5 overs.

- Should England set a target of 150, Pakistan's challenge becomes even steeper, with a requirement to chase it down in 3.4 overs.

- A score of 200 by England demands Pakistan to chase in 4.3 overs.

- The most demanding challenge comes if England puts up a total of 300 runs, putting Pakistan on the clock with a requirement to chase in just 6.1 overs.
