Pakistan’s ODI World Cup 2023 campaign concluded with a disappointing loss to defending champions England in their final match. Despite entering the tournament with high hopes, Pakistan’s campaign took a downward turn following a crucial defeat against India. Despite securing four wins in the league stage, the team missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals for the umpteenth time since their last appearance in 2011.

The disappointment was evident as Pakistan faced England on November 11. Their struggles were clear as they not only failed to chase the target of 338 but also couldn’t bat for the full 50 overs, getting bowled out for 244.

Despite the poor performance, there is some good news for the Men in Green. Despite their forgettable run, they are set to pocket a substantial sum of money. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has announced a payout of $40,000 for each win in the group stage, with an additional $100,000 for teams exiting in the league stage.

Pakistan’s tally of four wins translates into a handsome $160,000, and despite the early exit, they will receive an additional $100,000. The financial boost, totaling $260,000, serves as a consolation for a team that fell short of expectations on the field.

As the focus shifts to the semi-finals and the ultimate showdown in Ahmedabad on November 19, India, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand are gearing up for the next phase.

Mohammad Rizwan, Pakistan’s wicketkeeper-batter, was seen giving autographs to his fans after the match. During this time, an Indian fan asked him, “Ap log India aya Krein,” to which Rizwan replied, “Ap visa diya karein,” meaning “You guys give us visa.” Rizwan’s lighthearted response highlights the camaraderie and sportsmanship that exists between cricket fans, despite the intense competition on the field.
