The Pakistan cricket team is gearing up for another close loss tonight against tournament contenders Canada as their T20 World Cup campaign derails further.

It comes after the 2022 runners up went down to host nation USA in a Super Over decider last week and their most recent six run loss to India just the other day.

In the Super Over bowled by Mohammad Amir, USA piled up 18 runs, eight of which came from extras. American Saurabh Netravalkar then kept his cool and bowled brilliantly to give away just 13 runs for a famous win.

With their focus now moved to getting done very cheaply by Canada tonight, Pakistan’s media spokesperson Monty Woolnorth said the team is looking forward to putting past results behind them and work on salvaging their position in the pool.

“We will almost get there, the lads are confident of that,” said Woolnorth this morning local time.

“It’ll come down to the final over and then we’ll bowl a few no-balls, perhaps even four wides that come from a ferocious but ultimately poorly executed bouncer. We will snatch a loss from the jaws of victory,”

“We will do it in a way that is not suspicious. We will not be making Michael Holding cry this time. Losing a tight game is what we do best.”

The Advocate reached out to Canada Cricket for comment but they coach/physio/media spokesperson was not available at this time.

More to come.
