The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 is going great for some teams with consecutive wins. However, Pakistan's tournament isn't going great, as they have lost two matches and are on the verge of getting eliminated from the tournament. Hence, they must fix many things in the team to win their upcoming game against Canada.

If Pakistan loses this match, they'll not only be out of the tournament but also have to play in the qualifiers for the next T20 World Cup 2026. Their fielding has degraded, as they left a lot of catches in the previous match against India. This isn't the first time they have pulled off this stunt. Hence, they must look at the team's fielding perspective as catches win matches.     

Let's discuss the strategies for Pakistan to defeat Canada in the T20 World Cup to stay alive in the tournament:

1. Fakhar Zaman can open the innings alongside Babar 

Fakhar Zaman is an explosive batter who can boast about the team's score in powerplays and, hence, should open the batting with Babar Azam. With Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan, the main issue is that both are slow players and take time to analyze the pitch and respond to the conditions. However, Zaman has done well from an attacking perspective and, hence, can open the batting alongside Babar. 

2. Bringing Saim Ayub in playing XI 

Saim Ayub is another destructive batter who can do wonders if given a chance. He will fit in the middle order really well and can score runs during crunch situations. Hence, Pakistan should bring him in instead of Usman Khan, who hasn't had a good tournament so far.

3. Senior players like Rizwan, Babar and Imad need to understand the game awareness 

While the last two games are extremely important for Pakistan, senior players like Rizwan, Babar, and Imad Wasim should step up and take charge of the team. The team's bowling is great, but they are losing matches because of their batting. Hence, the batters should take up the responsibility and play wisely for the team.
