Pakistan finally made it to Semi-Finals

Pakistan cricket team captain refused to give up and finally made it to the T20 World Cup semi-finals.
Pakistan sailed into the T20 World Cup semi-finals on Sunday as Shaheen Afridi’s four-wicket haul helped Pakistan clinch a semi-final spot at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
The team made a victory of a five-wicket over Bangladesh in Adelaide.
Shaheen made it to 1992 again.
This game wouldn’t have turned out this way if not for Netherlands shocking South Africa.
The biggest casualty of this series of events were Bangladesh and Shakib Al Hasan. His wicket turned this game, adjudged lbw on field, and upheld on DRS even though he was absolutely certain he’d nicked the ball.
Bangladesh were 71 for 1 at one stage. Then they lost their captain and could manage only 127. Advantage Pakistan.
Babar and Mohammad Rizwan were undoubtedly the best opening pair in T20I cricket, but up until Sunday’s match neither player had shown much at the T20 World Cup.
The pair were able to put on 57 for the opening wicket and it looked like that the pair would have Pakistan to an easy victory, but both were removed in quick as Bangladesh increase the chances of winning the match.
When Litton Das threw down the stumps of Mohammad Nawaz to send the Pakistan all-rounder packing nerves began to set in for Babar’s talented side.
However that was as brilliant as it got as Bangladesh’s campaign came to an end and Pakistan’s continued on to the knockout stages in the semi-finals.
Shakib came out as a frustrated man during most of Sunday’s clash.
It all began when he was given out LBW for a golden duck as Bangladesh’s strong start inside their batting Powerplay was abruptly halted.
The Bangladesh leader was given out LBW first ball by South Africa umpire Adrian Holdstock and he quickly asked to review the decision as he was convinced he had edged the ball onto his pad.
Shakib’s anger grew more when the TV umpire confirmed the onfield decision and it was further perplexed during Pakistan’s innings when he wasn’t permitted to review an LBW decision against Nawaz as to the time having elapsed.
It wasn’t meant to be for Shakib or for Bangladesh, however, the Asian team can hold their heads high for the way they have performed at the tournament.
