Semi-final line-up: India v South Africa, Sri Lanka v West Indies

Ashal : "I love how gangnam style came on as soon as West Indies won, Bangladesh DJ wants Chris Gayle to dance."

James The Score: "Darn that Tanvir boundary!!"

Harshit: "82 all out! Is this an April fool prank?"

Manoj: "Now its time for synchronized Dancing Celebrations...!!"

This is the biggest win for West Indies in a T20I.

SaiM: "78 All out is still one of THE BEST predictions I have seen in this tournament...."

Mark: "Extraordinary! New Zealand, England and Pakistan all chasing reachable targets and none of them reached 90. Australia the exception in chasing successfully. Who will now bet against West Indies?"

Ankit pandey: "Pakistan: "U know what west indies ?? we dont like you either" :D"

Dwayne Bravo is the Man of the Match: "I didn't expect it to be so easy, we have a bowling line-up that can defend any total. Pakistan had our batting in a bit of a bother, but we bat deep. Man of the Match I would have tied with myself, Sammy and Badree."

Post-match presentation:

Mohammad Hafeez: "This wasn't the best of performance from Pakistan. We didn't play well in the final four overs, credit to West Indies. In the first 16 overs we bowled very well, but they got the momentum in the final four overs. We were a little bit panicked early in the chase." Hafeez thanks the fans for their support, and apologises for not putting on a better show. He also says he would have wanted to bat first.

Darren Sammy: "Australia was a pumped-up West Indies, today was a more focussed West Indies. They haven't chased very well. We were looking for 160, we had the momentum going into the dressing room at the break. [about his batting] It's about backing yourself, I have worked a lot with the batting coach, it is just about being confident, I'm trying to do whatever is necessary to get the team over the line."

So, the first semi-final is on April 3: Sri Lanka v West Indies. See you all then, thanks for the company today.

Aditya Pidapart: "On the face of it, there is not much difference between Pak and WI at 15 over stage. 10 runs. But the fact that WI were batting blind makes all the difference. They were free to bat as it seemed appropriate. Pakistan have something to keep up to, which is the problem for them."
