    Got to feel for New Zealand.

    They beat Pakistan. They also won more games than them in this tournament. Yet it's them who are taking the plane home.

    Well played, ICC.
    Oh get over it you, its the same playing field for all.....They beat Pakistan but got an ass whopping from SA. And Pak beat SA.
    BE AFRIDI!
    Be VERY AFRIDI!!

    Do we know if KP's back for the semifinal?

    A bet on Pakistan is a hail Mary at best.

    English innings could've been over before scheduled time, in which they might have got in a few extra overs while batting.

    Or forget it. He could've masterminded an upset against West Indies. Who knows. I regard him that highly.

    So even if the Eng game was a washout Ireland could have gone in.

    But all these are mere thoughts in the air, and apparently our moderator thinks it is trolling. I shall respect his views,

    Note to self: Do not attribute credit of an English win to Morgan.

    Hopefully Afridi and co will do something hilarious and beat Australia after being destroyed so many times this year.

    Not that I am in anyway confident of winning in the semi's but we have got an excellent chance that is for sure.

    Yeah, he will be. Jessica had the baby yesterday I believe, and KP's gonna be on a plane on Wednesday to make sure he's back for Thursday's Semi-Final.

    So Nz beat Pak beat SA beat NZ. Fair enough.

    What about the part where NZ has beat SL and Zim additionally, whereas Pakistan has just the one extra win against Bangladesh?

    It goes right next to the part where everyone knew what the rules were before the tourney started.

    Yeah I know but My theory about Pakistan has come true.

    Now waiting for Sri lanka to emulate them as well.

    Who the **** cares. This is 20/20, Pakistan lost to NZ by one run when they played. Pretty much anything can happen and anyone can win on the day, its very hard to decide whose the better team much of the time. Stop whining.

    Pakistan went through because their record was better than the other teams in the group...not rocket science and I don't really understand why it's being contested. That along with the fact that we wouldn't have qualified for the tournament but for all our player-robbing. Jeez, bottom of the barrel stuff in here....
