England and Pakistan are currently competing in the 44th match of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023 at the iconic Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata. Led by Jos Buttler, the 2019 champions, England have had a disappointing run in the tournament.
They have already been eliminated from the semifinal race. On the other hand, Pakistan were still in contention, although they needed to achieve an almost impossible task to improve their net run rate compared to New Zealand, which they failed to do, and are now officially out of the tournament.
India will now take on New Zealand in the semi-final, while Australia face South Africa.
