    Entire format of this tournament needs to be changed
    And if Pak is getting advantage of the whole system then why single them out. All teams are part of the same system...

    However, the Semi final of 2009 and the Final of 2009 were no flukes....they were pretty comprehensive wins as far as i see it.

    In 2007 T20 WC we defeated everybody except NZ and beat you guys twice.

    And what you did in 1992 WC and 2009 T20 WC was win few games and win the trophy
    What's up with this you and me?

    I would very well call that full toss, scooped by Misbah in 2007 a fluke win for India....that Sharma guy is no where to be seen in the Indian team now....

    So that means we can already count it as a SA loss.

    Late by 18 years on this one. Anyone who watched the WC 1992 wont call Pakistan's Victory as 'Fluke'. I

    The 1992 WC win by Pakistan was one of the most inspirational comeback performances in the history of One-day International Cricket IMO.

    Pak improves its chances for the semis, depends up on the Eng-NZ game's result

    If Pak makes it to the semis, once again they would have done it by beating just one major team in two rounds .... Last time, they went through by beating just one major team (NZ) in two rounds

    If NZ doesn't make it then have to feel sorry for it as it has played some cool cricket so far, i.e. beat SL (chasing) and Pak (defending a low total)

    To be fair, they did only make the semis because of that rain, but from that point on they were unstoppable.

    Really? Then how come a team that has won 2 and lost 3 are making it te the semi? Isn't the purpose of group matches to find the best 4 teams in the tournament? Are you suggesting a team that beat Bangladesh and now an out of sorts South Africa, but has lost to NZ, Eng and Aus deserve the semis?

    They have won more matches than Pakistan and yet could be out of the tournament. What a joke!

    They must have carry forward in the prelim group stages.

    SA are $$$.
    They are every gamblers dream team.
    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 just wonder if people would show the same level of criticism if it was any other team in the position that Pak is.
