Sarfaraz Ahmed's Pakistan have not made the greatest start to their World Cup 2019 campaign but it co-incidentally replicates to their 1992 World Cup triumph. With the match against Sri Lanka on Friday at the County Ground in Bristol abandoned, Pakistan have now accounted for a loss, a win and a match which had no result in the World Cup 2019. In a similar round-robin format during the 1992 World Cup, Pakistan lost their first match against the West Indies, before winning against Zimbabwe while their third match against England was called-off.

Pakistan's early show in the World Cup 2019 has left the fans amused with some calling it interesting and others cautioning teams not to take the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side lightly.

Some fans also believe it is an indication that Pakistan will repeat their 1992 World Cup history.

However, its about to time to tell, which one of the fans prediction comes out on top.

Till then enjoy the engaging tweets and prediction from fans here:

Pakistan will play their next match against Australia in the World Cup 2019 at The Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton on Wednesday.

Pakistan had lost their fourth match in the 1992 World Cup, which was against arch-rivals India by 43 runs.

However, Sarfaraz Ahmed has confident in his team to do well against the defending champions.

"We wanted to play the match, unfortunately we couldn't do anything. We'll take one point before the Australia match. Momentum was very high after the England match. Unfortunately, we didn't play today. We have a confident side so hopefully we'll do well against Australia," Ahmed said after the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match was called off.

Pakistan currently sit fourth on the World Cup 2019 points table with three points to their name.
