    This as well.

    Damn, they'll deserve it if they go all the way, playing some good cricket but will be gutted if it happens.

    Yeah but if you have watched Pakistan's matches against Australia in every format for the past six months you'll be crying at the prospect of facing them in the semis.

    If any team is capable of transforming overnight from complete crap to great levels, or the other way round, it must be Pakistan.

    Like you, I wouldn't be totally surprised if Pakistan were to get one over us if they were up against us in the semis, but people have been saying that about them every time they've played Australia in the last few months and it's always been the same result.

England will win in Australia again this winter as they are a better side which they have shown this summer. 3-0 doesn't lie girls.

    lol yeah Pakistan just craps their pants when facing Aus.

    Only if they win by more than 87 runs.

    It does bring up an interesting question though.. if Collingwood did get the axe from the T20 team, who'd get the captaincy? I think Pietersen would be basically out of the question after his last stint, I guess we'd be looking at Swanneh.

    That's an amazing expression on his face. Like he's making that ball levitate instead of catching it, and looking towards the camera as if to say "you bet".

    Not doubting his place yet, just think he needs to score some bloody runs. His last 2 years have been pathetic with the bat, and I actually think his fielding has been affected by him having the captaincy too, so all he has to fall back on is some medium pace off-cutters. Yet for some reason he appears to be untouchable in this side. I'd bet if anyone else in the side was averaging 8 with the bat in 7 innings this year there'd be loads of shouts for them to get the chop, but Collingwood seems to have gotten away with it. He's lucky the rest of the side are playing well, I'd bet if we had been knocked out early people would be talking about dropping him. Don't think he should be on the chopping board yet, but he really needs to start scoring some runs. Actually performing worse than Michael Clarke. =/

    Pietersen would get the captaincy for me. Was very harshly treated when captain last time, and should never have been sacked like he was. Pietersen should be ODi and T20 captain for me; Strauss should be replaced by Lumb at the top of the order in ODi's. He should be next in line for the Test captaincy tbh, even with what went on last time. Cook looked diabolical as skipper in Bangladesh.

    They do have tendency to transform in these situations. Lets see....

    To me its always been a one man show for Pak. In batting 1 match winner has to click. It could be Umar, Afridi or Razzaq. I don't see others as big match winners as these 3.

    In bowling along with Ajmal we need 1 more bowler to click....

    For Australia however, everyone needs to not click. The likes of Hussey, White, Watson especially.
    BE AFRIDI!
    Be VERY AFRIDI!!

    Don't want England to win under any circumstances, and don't want another subcontinental team winning either. Not much left to cheer for. Why couldn't have some nice neutral likable team like Windies or New Zealand have made the semifinals?
