Wisden Daily Cricket Podcast: Pakistan keep their semi-final hopes alive

by Wisden Staff 19 minute listen

Listen to the latest episode of The Wisden Cricket Daily Podcast, which will air throughout the Men’s Cricket World Cup.

At the 1992 World Cup, Pakistan won just one of their first five matches and went on to lift the trophy. Could history be about to repeat itself?

Jo Harman is joined by Daniel Gallan to look back at Pakistan’s 49-run victory over the Proteas at Lord’s, as they discuss the potent threat of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz, some strong words from coach Mickey Arthur for the Pakistani press, and the futures of Faf du Plessis and Ottis Gibson. They also consider the wider impact this miserable campaign could have on South African cricket.
