While Pakistan sealed its semi finals berth with a 10-wicket no-contest one-sided match against West Indies, India had out played Australia in an edge-of-seat action quarter finals on 24th March. The 34-match (at world cup) win streak held by defending champions Australia was broken by Pakistan during a pool match and India gave another shocker to push the champs off the world cup contention.
It had been a gamble to pick Raina over Pathan but it paid off very well for the Men in Blue as he had been very impressive with his ground fielding and held his nerve when he came to bat. His partnership with Yuvraj has been the turning point of the match for the both stole the game away from Australia (if they eyed one when India lost its captain Dhoni and India at 187/5). Fortunately, both Yuvraj and Raina kept calm and sent off odd balls to the boundary and relieved the pressure off India. They finished off with 5 wickets and 14 balls sparing.
Pakistan on the other hand came into world cup contention with no expectations from home and went on showing consistency even though one can still say they aren’t at their best yet. Afridi has been inspiring captain for the men in green and he has been outstanding with ball and if he can shine with his willow in the upcoming semis he’d make it tough for the Indian batters to match. Sehwag has kept his world cup dream innings reserved for semis it looks like and if he can find his mastery touch and timing. In short this will be a final like final, a war on the sporting field and battle that the subcontinent nations waiting for.
