After two consecutive defeats in the ICC T20 World Cup, Pakistan opened its account of victory. Host USA and then the Indian team forced Babar Azam's army to kneel down. The World Cup match against Canada was a do or die for the team and here it brought relief to the fans by winning. In this match, on the basis of better bowling, the team was successful in stopping Canada at just 106 runs and then achieved the target by losing 3 wickets and registered a win.

1 wicket turned the match for Pakistan
The match against Canada also became difficult for the Pakistan team. On one side the bowlers were taking wickets and on the other side the attack was going on. Aaron Johnson single-handedly handled the Pakistani bowlers. This opener was maintaining the lead by hitting 4 fours and as many sixes. Naseem Shah sent him back by clean bowling him in the 14th over.

If this batsman, who was in great form, had not been out, the score would have been different. Pakistan's team looked uncomfortable even in scoring 106 runs. If Canada had scored 130 or 135 runs, things would have gone wrong for Babar Azam's team. Johnson was out after scoring 52 runs in 44 balls at a strike rate of 118.
