ENG vs PAK Live Score: England and Pakistan are set for a clash in the 44th Match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 On Saturday, November 11, at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The match has great significance, even though neither team is likely to make it to the semi-finals. England has already been eliminated from this tournament, but Pakistan still has a mathematical chance of advancing.
The Men in Green must win a big match against the defending champions in order to qualify for semi-finals. It is well known that a victory margin of more than 280 runs will be difficult to achieve. If England chooses to bat, Pakistan’s chances to make it to the semifinals will be significantly diminished.

The tournament will feature the top eight teams including the hosts Pakistan. England is currently ranked seventh with two wins in eight games. The next match is crucial to their chances of making the top eight.
In the event of England losing, it’s important to make sure that their NRR is not lower than that of Sri Lanka -1.419 and Netherlands -1.635. Both teams have four points. Bangladesh, which is currently ranked eighth, plays against Australia today in an attempt to finish in the top eight. England would benefit greatly if Australia managed to defeat Bangladesh with a large margin.
