Pakistan Enter the T20 World cup finals!

This was truly a thrilling win for Pakistan in more ways than one. Not only they have come out against all odds, they have done it with the flair that we associate Pakistan cricket with: unpredictability.

When you see Afridi most of the times, getting out in first few balls, you would think why this guy was ever considered a batsman? And then he comes up with an innings like that one. Sheer brilliance! Luckily, his bowling in ODIs and T20s has been consistent to earn him a place in the side.

This win can do wonderful things for Pakistan cricket and I am hoping they will continue their great form in the finals.

I am hoping for a Srilanka vs. Pakistan final. Lankans have done a great job in the tournament so far and they look like they won’t go down without a fight. WI on their bad day can look very dismal. Malinga vs. Afridi would be a great battle to watch for. I have no particular favorite between the two as India is already out.  Whoever the winner is, the final will be more likely than not be a grand entertainment affair.
