    I think it's a little too late.

    You take away that awful Sajib over and it would've be 23 from 23 balls.

    Worrying news for Pakistan.

    Mohammad Hafeez could miss the match after a bone contusion in his femur. while Wahab Riaz was hit in the neck region by a throw at practice and had to visit the hospital.

    Both will face late fitness tests before NZ. You'd expect either Mohammad Nawaz or Imad Wasim, and Khalid Latif, to come in.

    You imagine he would've added some quick runs at the top of the innings. Although it was Sarkar rather than Tamim's replacement who struggled.

    Taskin was a huge miss today too. Disgraceful that they banned him and Sunny mid-tournament. Surely it should've been before or after the tournament?

    Not sure why Mortaza played today.

    Unlucky Bangladesh.

    Let's be honest, Australia still need to improve. And fast. Their old problems - issues facing turn, not knowing their finest T20 side - remain and are so, so evident.

    Again, Khawaja showed he was head and shoulders above the rest of the Australian order. He has an average of 71 in this year's T20s.

    Smith's latest failings with the bat are probably the first dip in form he's ever experienced, so it'll be interesting to see how he copes with that. I personally would deploy Finch from hereon in, because the man is such an explosive batsman and capable of turning a game in the Aussies' favour.

    Fair play to Zampa, who showed he was a cut above Agar and really deserved his selection with figures of 3-23. He spared Australia's blushes today, I felt. Hastings and Marsh were particularly expensive. Death bowling is becoming a real issue for them, with Bangladesh helping themselves to 44 in the final three overs.

    biggest loss is hafeez! hope bat first make 145-150 will be able to defend it especially as its meant to be a green wicket!

    The biggest cause of ire for the Australian fans must be the fact that, even by registering a victory today, nothing has really changed. The same selection issues persist, and the same failings were exposed.

    Afghanistan and Bangladesh, predictably, are out of the tournament with Pakistan needing to win tomorrow against NZ to still have a chance to go through.

    It looks like WI will definitely go through so one of England/South Africa won't go through to the semis. Don't see SL going through, either.

    Big test for Pakistan today, especially without Hafeez. NZ have been brilliant at assessing the pitch and conditions, and selecting a side to trouble their opponents based on that.

    They go into the game today unchanged. If they win it, they'll be in the SFs.

    Come on the Black Caps.

    It's sad when Pakistan have a blistering start but you still doubt them because... collapses are all to frequent.

    Gutted missed Sharjeel's knock, given them an excellent start but might have been an idea to send Umar Akmal (despite his public begging to Imran Khan) instead of Latif.

    Seems as though Sharjeel was batting on a completely different surface. Pathetic batting.

    Sharjeel was massively let down by his team-mates today.

    Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal in particular, who managed a paltry return in their partnership of just 17 runs in four overs. The latter was particularly woeful, managing just 24 off 26 balls, with no fours or sixes.

    Pakistan didn't manage a single boundary in the final five overs - when the run rate was 11. That's just not good enough.

    NZ knew that Pakistan are vulnerable on the chase, so winning the toss was crucial and gave Williamson a fine start. I found it interesting, though not surprising, that Southee/Boult found themselves benched again.

    Congratulations to NZ for making the semi-finals. I think that there's a few things for them to iron out - the delivery of both Mitchell McClengaghan and Adam Milne, despite the latter's removal of Sharjeel, being the main one.

    Spare a thought for Amir, too. His worst figures in T20 came today.

    Waqar Younis nailed Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal in the post-match press conference, spot on. Shehzad was moaning about not being included in the World T20 squad post PSL and failed when it mattered; Akmal was begging to Imran Khan for a higher position and again bottled it yet he'll be described as a "special talent".

    Younis absolutely correct with his assessment. It's a damning indictment to spend the last five overs without hitting a single boundary.
