    Bangladesh were actually ranked 8th when they beat them.

    Your opinion of cricket is not wanted or needed on the forum.

    Don't you need to be favourites in order to choke? Chasing down 300 may have gotten easier in ODI cricket in recent times but you're still never favoured to do so, unless it's against a minnow.

    Critisize your own team salman, a team that shipped 0NE HUNDRED RUNS in 5 overs. A team whose batting was exposed by the Canadians eh. Then you have a wk that couldn't catch the black plague even if he tried.
    Don't see how Pakistan has anything to do with this, tbh. Try to keep it on topic and not going down the 'my team is better than your team' path please.

    well consistency starts here.....stick to the topic...
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Correct me if I am wrong here but this is SA's record in world cup knock out games:

    92 World Cup: 1st knockout game = semis vs England. Result: Lost
    96 World cup: 1st knockout game = Quarters vs WI. Result: Lost
    99 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Australia. Result: Lost
    2003 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage
    2007 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Australia. Result: Lost
    2011 World Cup. 1st knockout game = Quarters vs ? Result: ?

    2007 T20 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage
    2009 T20 World Cup: 1st knockout game = Semis vs Pakistan. Result: Lost
    2010 t20 World Cup: Didnt reach knockout stage.

    Given that they have lost 100% of their knockout games in history, it is a bit hard to understand how beating India in a rather meaningless game is supposed to cure 19 years that they've spent building and enhancing their reputation as the game's finest World cup knockout chokers. The only way to remove the tag is for them to replace that question mark with a win.
