Commentary

From an exhausted Martin Williamson, goodnight and many thanks for all your kind comments and observations. Check out the match gallery and the bulletin. We will be back tomorrow to see if Canada can upset England or Netherlands can beat Australia. It will take something amazing to match today for drama and excitement. A bad day for Pakistan, and a bad day for India who lost to Bangladesh. A good day for neutrals and those who have backed the inclusion of the Associates in the tournament ...

The Irish players pour onto the field while the Pakistan players, after congratulating their conquerers, head for the dressing-room. Ireland are probably through to the Super Eights - it would need something amazing from Zimbabwe to deny them - while Pakistan are on their way home. The one plus is that is was not settled on Duckworth-Lewis and that both sides had a chance to sort things in the middle.

The crowd are torn between those celebrating and those who cannot watch. Almost all the Pakistan fans, understandably, have gone home.

Wichka emails: "The commentators were biased and didn't give the fair overview. They should be sacked. All commentators should not show bias regardless of which country they are from." A bad loser? Surely not ...
