T20 World Cup - Super 8s Review

The Super 8s is over and we have our semi-finals lineup ready
England vs Sri Lanka
Australia vs Pakistan
So only 2 of my predicted semi-finalists made it through (one from each group). And as for my ultimate final lineup, it failed on the first hurdle itself.
Here are the highlights of the Super 8s (although I watched only one match a day)
  • England's awesome performances (something which is hardly expected from the Brits). Kevin Pietersen was their star.
  • Australia getting a hang of the T20. Superb displays from the entire batting order. Highlight was the six blitz against India.
  • India's meek surrender in bouncy Barbados.
  • Pakistan sneaking in to the semis, with help from England.
  • South Africa somehowing losing the plot. AGAIN.
Ok form now on no more predictions. I hope England win the tournament though.

In the women'd section, the lineup is
New Zealand vs West Indies & India vs Australia.
England's early exit was shocking.
Hope the Indian women do better.
