I don't really care who wins here. If SL wins they will go ahead in the ranking, if Pak wins which will keep SL at 7 and lose points. So .... either really.

Junaid Khan is worse. Just before release arm bending too much. Never seen him with short sleeves and I don't think the world of cricket ever will (even in the hottest of weather). There is a reason why he loves long sleeves!

Much better after India game though, when he's off rhythm he chucks, India game he chucked non stop

Watch the junaid wicket (on cricinfo) from side on and tell me how that's legal

Can anyone tell me how that's legal, I'd love to here Pakistani opinions on the junaid wicket... And don't say he's not been found guilty... He's not been tested...ajmal always chucked, not just when he got caught

SA must be feeling unlucky. Had the rain not interrupted the match, they would have had a pretty good chance of bowling Pak out.

My thoughts exactly.

The whole Pakistan team is a comedy show IMO. Only exception was Misbah

He should send some celebratory sweets over to Perera. It is gonna be a long and awkward flight back for him. Still cannot believe he dropped that catch.

Good win this. PAKs will probably compare our chase against NZ with this match. Good entertainment value.

England will most probably spank the PAKs really hard which means we will most probably see England in the final :D

Atherton was sounding so jolly while commentating. You could tell, he couldn't have asked for an easier opponent for his country in the semis.

On a serious note, plenty of Indian members already on that board, I don't think I could bring anything new to the table, if BC had decent number of Indian members onboard I would not have opened account here as well, happy to be a harmless and silent lurker.

Sadly I was banned for trying to argue that Tamim was better than Hafiz a couple of years back. The rejection still haunts me in my dreams.

Brilliant batting by Amir. Sarfaraz was shaky but luck favoured him.
Fakhar is impressive. Hope they show some fight against England.

Seriously man, it was way too cringeworthy even for the neutrals, with all the youngsters in the team I was expecting them to be exciting and energetic on the field.

What a match! Well done and salaam Pakistan. Big congrats!

What a championship. We, Bangladesh are in the Semi-final of a major world tournament of a major sport for the first time in our history. I thank the Lord for his kind and loving blessing.

What a feeling - three of the sub-continental teams (Bangladesh, India and Pakistan) are in the top final four along with England - who is an excellent team as well.

We, Bangladesh are the youngest among all these giants. We are new, we are learning. Man, I am so grateful that my fellow cricketers, my team Bangladesh are going to play against, with and alongside these fantastic cricket power houses. No arrogance here, just genuine gratefulness.

Why do we want laugh at others miseries? They haven't done anything harmful to you.

I am not with you. We were worse than that in 2003. You forget the past?

Hats off to both teams. Especially SL. Losing so many core players in the middle of the tournament (Tharanga, Kapugedera) and still fighting; shows their spirit. Beating Ind with a B team, was one of the great moment of this tournament. If they go on to win the championship, you would be the champion killer. :)

Well done Pakistan. Play proudly against England. #8 team and already surpassing expectations. Nothing to lose.

I am not laughing at their potential.

I am laughing at them not fulfilling potential. I watched the entire match, and their fielding was just woeful.

I mean not only did they drop dollies, they couldn't even hit the stumps. Infact they did inflict a runout but that was by a mistake. Overthrows, fumbles, not being able to gather the ball. Everything was wrong with SL on the field.

It was like a school team playing in a competition for the first time. It was LOLworthy. As a fan of lanka cricket instead of feeling bad about them, i think its better to just "laugh it off"

Sri Lanka loses a ranking point. Pakistan gains one. Bangladesh two points clear of SL, at 6!

6) Bangladesh 95
7) Sri Lanka 93
8) Pakistan 91

Alhamdulilah. It feels like decades ago when we were last 8/9!
BD been 7th since 2015! But it feels long long time ago, was below 8!
Windies will be qualifying for the WC!

That was a fluke, we would still beat them 9 out of 10 times, that being said we were completely outplayed by them, still that was an upset and nothing more. We are always vulnerable during the initial stages of a tournament, but we learn from our mistake and learn fast, hence we are only below Aus when it comes to trophy counts :)

Per your logic Pak defeated the #1 ranked team, defeated the mighty Lankans, so they must be stronger than us, right? #statingfacts

No. But it implies Indian bowling may crumble under pressure specially defending. Plus, The jury is still out regarding Kohli's captaincy

How bad is Sri Lanka's fitness and fielding. Players getting injured, lacking agility, energy. Even on the field miserable.

Pakistan anyway is terrible in both departments, but Sri Lanka surprisingly dropped to that level.
