Pakistan’s unfortunate run in the 2023 ODI World Cup continued as they faced their fourth straight loss, a first in their World Cup history. The latest heartbreak came from a defeat against South Africa.
The team began the tournament with wins against the Netherlands and Sri Lanka, but their luck changed swiftly. Pakistan faced consecutive defeats against rivals India, Australia, Afghanistan, and now South Africa, marking their first-ever four-match losing streak in World Cup history.
The recent loss against South Africa was a tight contest that ended with South Africa winning by just 1 wicket. Despite Pakistan’s bowlers fighting hard to defend a low target, they couldn’t secure the win. This defeat has shattered Pakistan’s hopes of progressing further in the tournament, leaving both fans and players stunned by this unexpected and historic turn of events.
