Well that's a great result for all concerned. It's all between the ears for Pakistan.

Afghanistan will hope the rain doesn't ruin everything. They might end up needing 210 off 30 overs or something ridiculous

If DWL takes into account wickets fallen it shouldn't be any more of a chase than the current total

You'd be particularly disappointed with Mendis and Mathews for being in part of that collapse if you were a Sri Lanka supporter.

Man I was ready to fold the whole nation if we lost that. I was alive in 96 but I can’t remember that win and I will probably never see us doing it again.

Im not used to SA choking in the group stage. Usually they save that for the knock outs.

It's probably their weakest world cup team since apartheid

Feels a lot like a transition team with the older blokes at the tail end of their careers trying to eke out one last WC and the younger blokes not quite experienced enough to have a real impact. They were such a dominant side for years but have nothing really to show for it.

Plus if England win we can safely downplay it by arguing they only won because it was being played in England.

What's the bet South Africa get India to needing 20 off the last 2 overs but MS Dhoni's drags India over the line with his sorry strike rate.
