I guess Afridi's speech made us all winners. I felt a lil SOB in my throat when I saw tears in his eyes.Despite all the terrible mistakes, it was quite an effort.
Coming down to the mistakes.
1. Umer Gul 'The yorker Specialist' god knows what happened to him. He's a good bowler but not exactly the best. I remember matches where Umer Gul was the man of the match. The man who didn't let the other team score a run. I wish we had the same Umer Gul in this match too.
2. Shoaib akhtar Okay, most of you might not agree with me but according to me, the target would've been much much lesser if Shoaib would've bowled for the first three over.
3.Misbah And Younus WAKE UP YOU GUYS! THIS IS NOT A TEST MATCH. IT'S THE FREAKING SEMI FINAL. OF THE WORLD CUP. THAT HAPPENS AFTER EVERY THREE FREAKING YEARS. AND APPARENTLY OUR NATION MAKES A BIGGIE OUT OF LOSING TO INDIA ( GOD KNOWS WHY )
4.Bad fielding has always been a problem for Pakistan.They really need to improve in it.
Everyday is not your lucky day. But after a hurricane, comes a rainbow.Last time they reached the quarter finals. This time they reached the semi finals. And next year.... you know what I mean right? :)
