Pakistan cricket team won only four matches from their nine encounters in the ICC World Cup 2023, but still will be richer by USD 260,000.
After a million permutations and combinations by the fans and cricket experts, the Pakistan cricket team finally exited the ICC World Cup 2023 after their loss to England recently. Once again, the team led by Babar Azam failed to live up to the expectations and crashed out of the tournament without making it to the playoffs.
It was a campaign marked by poor leadership, poor individual performances, and controversies. The Pakistani team that came into the World Cup with a lot of expectations, found their campaign getting derailed after a massive loss to India. Post that, it was only a story of disappointments.
