Pakistan Triumph Over Sri Lanka To Become England's Semi-Final Opponent In The ICC.

The ICC Trophy has been so much fun. Although I was occupied doing other things yesterday, I half-watched the above match - indeed, with so many highlights after a momentous catch dropped and so on - I doubt that I missed anything of note.
This was not so much an advert for good cricket - although there were some truly magnificent plays of the very highest order - but it rather showed two sides both endeavouring to make the maximum number of mistakes and still hoping to avoid defeat.
Hugely entertaining. I shall be devastated if England do not manage to progress to the final tomorrow having seen our opponents muddle past Sri Lanka. BUT, Pakistan cannot be underestimated as their seam attack can be extremely deadly.
