Shaheen takes six to thump Bangladesh by 94 runs
Teenager Shaheen Afridi returned the best-ever figures for Pakistan at a World Cup of 6-35 as they finished level on 11 points and games won (five) with fourth-placed New Zealand, missing out on the top four due to their inferior run-rate.
The other teams in next week’s semifinals are Australia, India and hosts England, with the final group matches taking place on Saturday.
Pakistan finished the tournament with four straight wins but ultimately paid the price for a sluggish start.
