India were pretty poor in the field but I wouldn't write them off on this wicket it looks like a good pitch to chase a big score on.

My commentators curse strikes again :-)

Azhar Ali should playing the lottery today. Pak could still lose this but he owes his team big time.

I'm afraid the Indian bowlers let you down badly, that said there must be Indian bowlers with more pace than this dibbly dobbly lot.

Feel that is more in hope than anything else. 54/5? Get some money on India if you are that confident.

I'd be a bit scared walking into the dressing room if I was Jadeja. Pandya was furious.

What a result for Pakistan. Looked a mess at Egblaston just two weeks ago and now...

Hasan has had an outstanding tournament in the end. Reckon Fakhar will be MotM but Amir's spell was wot done it.

Good old Pakistan. Just when you think they can't get any worse, they go and stuff everyone to win a major tournament.

Surely one of the greatest comebacks of all time in any sport. Great stuff from Pak. Well done.

Thoroughly thoroughly outplayed by Pakistan. Congratulations! A fairy tale against-all-odds run.

Outstanding stuff from Pakistan! We were utterly annihilated today, near flawless display from Pakistan.

As aNarcHy2day says, this is really fairy-tale stuff from the Pakistanis.

A few points to consider for India, mainly around how they approach these knockout games. But that's for another day, today belongs to Pakistan.

I was just about to post this. They were so-so in the 2015 wc and in the 2 years that followed looked to be playing ODI cricket from 1985. Enter CT 2017 and in the first match, Pakistan were humiliated (by a good but not great Indian side)...then what happens? Pakistan handed out 3 debuts. That's right, 3 debuts in one tournament, each one performed and people overlook the fact that due to these debutants, Pakistan were able to beat the number one ODI side, then the side that had beaten India (all in KO matches) and THEN beat the home side, the favourites, the best batting side for 24 months...and not only that, Pakistan annihilated 2 of the 3.

Pakistan went from bottom of the pile to winning by the largest margin in tournament cricket history.

That's not just a come back, that's a rebirth.

The IPL is grossly overrated as a tournament/league. They play on flat pitches against flatter bowlers. The first 2 seasons were good for novelty value but since then, with corruption, match fixing etc it has been a sambles.
