World Cup 2023: Australia suffered a big setback before the Test series against Pakistan. Pakistan’s star batsman has been ruled out of the next two matches due to injury. The match between Pakistan and Australia is to be held on October 20, but before that Pakistan has suffered a big setback. This could harm Pakistan’s prospects.

After the match with Australia on October 20, Pakistan has to play against Afghanistan on October 23, but before that, Pakistan’s star player Fakhar Zaman has been ruled out of the next two matches. Fakhar Zaman will not play against Australia or Afghanistan. This is a big blow for Pakistan. Fakhar plays an important role in strengthening Pakistan’s batting, but due to injury he is going to be out of the next 2 matches.

Let us tell you that Pakistan has won 2 out of 3 matches played in the 2023 World Cup. At the same time, Pakistan is at fourth place in the points table of the World Cup. Pakistan was doing well, but lost a one-sided match against India. No one thought that Pakistan would lose against India so easily, but it happened. Now if Pakistan has to strengthen its hold to reach the semi-finals then it will have to defeat Australia.

After Australia, Pakistan will face Afghanistan in its next match. Afghanistan has also done the opposite with England in this World Cup. In such a situation, it could be a big mistake for Pakistan to take it lightly.
