ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 2nd semi final

India v Pakistan

India won by 29 runs


Yuvraj Singh to Umar Akmal, SIX, terrific shot! Massive pressure released again. Akmal picks up the short length early, rocks back, and hammers the ball with brute force over deep midwicket. First six of the game

Pakistan 128/4   Umar Akmal 17* (16b 1x4 1x6)   Yuvraj Singh 5.3-1-24-2


Yuvraj Singh to Umar Akmal, SIX, Akmal has decided Yuvraj has to go, he charges the spinner, gets under the ball and hammers it over the sight screen, he took one hand off the bat even and it still went miles, is he turning the game?

Pakistan 140/4   Umar Akmal 27* (21b 1x4 2x6)   Yuvraj Singh 6.3-1-34-2


Patel to Misbah-ul-Haq, SIX, six! Slammed down the ground, sailing over the boundary. Fifty for Misbah, but there are just too many runs needed now

Pakistan 230/9   Misbah-ul-Haq 55* (68b 5x4 1x6)   MM Patel 9.2-1-39-2
