Smits: "We didn't have a good day. Afridi was outstanding. That's what we said in the morning, we had to fear Afridi and he did it. Our bowling was ok but it was too much for us. Congrats to Pakistan. It's a privelege to be here and we made some impact on Friday night. "

Younis: "It was all about partnerships today. I thought 180 and 190 should be good. We wanted to be positive and so we batted first. The spinners- Afridi and Ajmal- bowled really well.

Man of the Match Kamran Akmal: "T20 is a fun game. Everybody is practising fours and six. we got good partnerships going. I am very happy with the wicketkeeping. I have worked very hard on it."

Umar Gul to Seelaar, OUT, And Pakistan go through to the next round in style. What a Dutch capitulation this has been. Gul cleans up the leg stump. The crowd roar. Netherlands played well against England but couldn't repeat the trick today. Pakistan didn't allow them. Their spinners, Ajmal and Afridi in particular, were fantastic. As some of you have mailed in, Kamran Akmal now has the most stumpings in a T20.

Saeed Ajmal to Nannes, OUT, Another stumping from Akmal. It was another lovely little doosra from Ajmal, who has really impressed today. Nannes had walked into the shot and was beaten by the delivery that broke away. He must have thought that he was bowled as he didn't initially try to get back. Akmal had not collected cleanly but recovered quickly to break the stumps. nannes turned back only after that. Too late.
