With Pakistan losing their first four matches in the ongoing ICC Women’s One Day World Cup, their head coach David Hemp would like to end their campaign by winning the remaining three matches and take a respectable place in their group.
Pakistan’s chances of qualifying for the semi-finals after four losses are negligible, with Hemp saying West Indies’ narrow win against Bangladesh has propelled them to third place in the table. With West Indies expected to finish third in the table and England and New Zealand in the top four, Pakistan’s matches against all three teams could turn out to be very important.
With Pakistan set to face West Indies on Monday, Ganja said they would try to win all three matches to make an impact in the tournament.
“Well, we obviously can’t qualify. So it’s a challenge for us. But I mean, obviously there’s an interest now that West Indies won that tight game a few days ago and finished third. I think there are clearly four teams down there looking to see what they do next and obviously there will be a little bit of interest as we play some of those teams obviously England – These three – West Indies, England and New Zealand. So there are some really big games coming up in the tournament,” Ganja said in a virtual press conference on Sunday.
The Pakistan head coach said that his team’s aim is to win all the remaining three matches of the tournament and finish it at the highest level.
“All three win. So it hasn’t changed. You know, we obviously take one game at a time because that’s all you can see. So for us, nothing, nothing moved there. The results Regardless,” he said.
Ganja said his team will play one match at a time and would like to do well first against the West Indies on Monday.
“It’s all about focusing on West Indies. And then once that game is done, regroup, review it, look at the areas in which we did well and the areas we need to think about. And then the focus will be on England and after that we will move to New Zealand.”
