    If it is a SF/Pak semi it would be at Trent bridge. Even Dilshan a part-timer was getting some spin. I'd like Pakistan's chances especially with the way Afridi has been bowling to choke SF.
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    I think South Africa is going to destroy the weak Pakistani bating lind up.. their batsmans have struggled throughout the tournment.. Facing such a strong bowling line up of South Africa.. i don't think they could win..so my money is on South Africa..

    Trent Bridge again for South Africa and with Pak's spin they could be in trouble.

    Anyone know the odds on the Sf/Pak game?
    None of the books I use have it listed yet.

    Can't see us making it past SA. Even with the choke factor. Our batting is sure to crumble even if our bowling gives us a chance.

    Pakistan are just two "fight like cornered tigers" team talks away from winning this one!

    No, seriously, things are coming together for them -- it's as though Lady Luck's sitting in their metaphorical passenger seat.

    You could say the same about the WIndies, however.

    SL and WI both making it makes our two losses look slightly less awful I suppose.

    No Imran for the pep talk I think SA would be a bridge too far for Pakistan.

    Hope SL pick Maharoof for the semi. We might have a chance of getting a boundary or two if he bats in the last 5 overs.

    Hope they pick both Maharoof and de Saram. Silva and Mubarak are not exactly great selections.

    i have to say i don't hold views like Shunmuga.. I have said that based on recent pakistani performance..

    they haven't sort out their bating yet.. their two main batsmans Malik and Misbah are out of form.. South Africa's bowling line up and fielding has been the best in this tournment.. they managed to defend their lowest total in the world cup and if they perform like that.. Pakistan's weak batting will colapes under 100 runs..

    My favorite teams are West Indies, Sri Lanka and Pakistan.. but i don't think any of them are as good as South Africa.. so as much as i like any of those teams to win it.. but South Africa has the most chance..
