T20 World Cup Final
England are through to it.
Most of us wouldn’t have seen that coming, but England’s team is to blame for that. But to give credit where it’s due, they’ve done it. Attacking and consolidating in the right measures, getting the right team on the field and overcoming Duckworth Lewis aided hiccups, they’ve done it.
Australia and Pakistan will play the second semi final tonight to decide the second finalist. Australia look good to go all the way but no bet is safe when Pakistan are playing.
Pakistan’s had more than their share of luck in making it to the semis and their form against Australia earlier this year points towards their shortcomings.
Australia on the other hand have been ruthless throughout the tournament. Their opening batsmen, bowling attack (even the part timers), their goddamn leg spinning all rounder and even their fielding has been ruthless.
Exactly the kind of opposition Pakistan have a knack for brushing aside in high profile matches such as tonight’s.
I’m hoping Mohammed Aamer’s 5 wicket over comes much earlier in the innings this time.
