I believe non of the South Asian team deserved to be in he semis. Sri Lankas performance was just pathetic. I hope we go home tomorrow. Even if we are make it to finals we will play against Aussies and lose anyways.

Jayasuriya is 40 years old and should have retired right after the 2007 ICC world cup. By being in the team he has ended some young guys career.

Sangakaras captaincy also not very impressive, Opening with 40 year old Jayasuriya against 4 bowlers who could hit the 90 mph was the most foolish thing.

Are you Bangladeshi or Pakistani?

On your other point, I agree that India deserves to go out simply because many of their fans believe Raina and Rohit Sharma are great batsmen when they are just flat track bullies

Why are Bangladeshis supporting pakistan?have they done anything to help BD cricket since independence? I have not read anything about this. I feel that India has done more to help BD cricket. The PCB have more jerks and morons than the BCB.

Australia's convincing wins in their two matches have almost surely assured them of a semi-final, but the fight is on for the second slot from group F. Cricinfo looks at what each team needs to do to make the cut.

Sri Lanka (points 2, net run-rate -0.600)
They are currently in second place, thanks to a run rate that is superior to that of West Indies. The best-case scenario for them is that they beat India, and Australia beat West Indies, in which case Australia and Sri Lanka will qualify for the semi-finals on points. Sri Lanka will also be through if they lose to India by less than 20 runs and Australia beat West Indies.

However, even a win against India will not assure them a spot in the last four, if West Indies beat Australia. Currently, Sri Lanka have conceded 24 more runs than they have scored, while for West Indies the corresponding number is 43. If both teams win their final games and West Indies win by a margin that offsets that difference, then they will go through. Thus, if Sri Lanka beat India by a run, and West Indies beat Australia by 21 runs, then the home team will progress to the semis.

West Indies (points 2, net run-rate -1.075)
The win against India has kept them in contention, but the huge defeat against Sri Lanka means their NRR is still languishing at -1.075. They'll qualify without the run rate coming into play if they beat Australia and if Sri Lanka lose to India. However, if they beat Australia and Sri Lanka beat India, then NRR will come into play. West Indies currently have a handicap of 19 runs compared to Sri Lanka (refer to the paragraph above), and they'll have to win by a margin that offsets that handicap. A defeat against Australia will put them out of the tournament, regardless of the result in the other match.

India (points 0, net run-rate -1.575)
For India to make the cut, they'll have to beat Sri Lanka by a margin of at least 20 runs, and then hope West Indies lose to Australia. Currently India have conceded 63 more runs than they have scored, compared to Sri Lanka's 24. If they win by 20 runs, their difference will reduce to 43 while Sri Lanka's will increase to 44, which will do the trick for India. If India bat second, and assuming Sri Lanka have scored 160, they'll need to chase it down in a maximum of 17.4 overs to lift their NRR above Sri Lanka's.

Australia (points 4, net run-rate +3.250)
Not only have they won two games, they've won them so convincingly that their net run rate is an incredible +3.25; the difference between their runs scored and conceded is 130. They're through unless what's listed below, or something even more incredible, happens: West Indies beat Australia by 87 runs, and Sri Lanka beat India by a 68-run margin. Then both West Indies and Sri Lanka will have a higher NRR than Australia. It's a possibility, but only in theory.

I disagree..we should not look at how people on the forums look at us so much..because the paki friends I have are not like that at all..they actually have a soft side 2 BD and really like our players..they also talk about how its just a matter of time before we become a good team..some indians I found were pretty obnoxious but most of them actually like our cricket team as well and they say the same thing..at the end of the day there are good and bad apples in each country and we cant let the bad apples overtake what we think of them..I really love pakistan because of the style they play..once they click they can be 1 of the most exciting teams in the world..never liked india because of their style..their just a boring team 2 watch..only get entertained by the way yuvraj plays but players like gambhir and vijay put me 2 sleep..not saying their not good batsmen but just dont like the way they play..

Sangga has no planning on whom to bowl which over. Perera with the least Econ will not finish his quota.

What a great chase by the Lankans. Matthews is turning out to be quite a T20 sensation. Extremely measured chase here, let's see if they can get 4 off 3 to pull this off. If they do, God save the West Indies.

And you want the sun to rise from the west?

The equation has changed to 24 runs. Those four runs are as costly it can be, lol.
