    Really? I think Austrailia have a better chance.
    They haven't really been in form. Neither has India but at least India has Kohli/Bumrah/Ashwin

    Pakistan could easily have won that match. Their total was achievable, admittedly, but they could've emerged victorious had Kohli not shown he was head and shoulders above any other T20 batsman on the sub-continent.
    I was saying that to a friend earlier too. They could've won tha easily. At around 8 overs, I thought India would lose because by that time they had already reached 3 wickets.

    Only if they got Kohli's wicket.

    That was the key to the game

    I was literally praying that Kohli doesn't get a wicket. I was yelling at the TV for him to be careful because of the continuous fours and sixes with Yuvraaj Singh.

    Well you know what they say, the match could've been fixed...

    (Jk Indians don't kill me please)

    Haha I always believe that Pakistan vs India is never a straight forward game of cricket. A lot of politics and pressure!

    It's the hope that kills.

    Kohli is simply to be admired, has an incredible mindset when batting and he just seems immovable when he gets in the groove.

    On the game itself, the pitch was poor but India utilised it so much better with their spinners and add to that their mental hegemony in these official contests between the two sides, was inevitable they would see the job through despite the odd nervy moment.

    Pakistan made errors although not picking Imad wasn't the big mistake as it was made out. Don't think picking him would have changed the result. Batting wise, they made a cautious but decent start - Shehzad played a poor shot to ruin his work and if it wasn't for Malik and Akmal, would have been a low total than what they got. Afridi made captaincy errors - not giving Amir his third over when Kohli came in or when India lost their fourth wicket but he brought himself on for some reason. The lazy attitude to giving India easy singles was most infuriating - no pressure at all defending a small total. Don't see Pakistan ending this poor record anytime soon, difficult to change mentality.

    But least Pakistan have a chance, but two tough games which I don't see them winning. Great result for the women team at least!

    All this time during the match, I was just praying for Kholi to get out cos he is the REAL danger
    Yeh, could've been tighter. At least the pressure game is gone, slim chance we'll get to the Semi-Finals with our final two games.

    Idk about that

    Aus vs Bangladesh - Aus will win
    NZ vs Pakistan - NZ will win
    India vs Bangladesh - India will win
    Aus vs Pakistan - Aus will most likely win unless we pull of something spectacular
    Bangladesh vs NZ - NZ will win
    India vs Australia - India most likely

    So either way NZ will go through and then I think it's between India/Aus
    pak should beat NZ and AUS
    PAK against aus record in t20 WC
    2007 pak win
    2010 pak lose 2 games
    2012 pak win
    2014 pak win
    overrall 60% record

    NZ only win if they bat first - If they bat second their batting becomes exposed

    Just seen there's only one match - Australia vs Bangladesh - on Monday, and one - NZ vs Pakistan - on Tuesday.

    Oh man.

    Need to make the most of watching two matches, SA vs Afghanistan and SL vs the Windies, tomorrow.
