A week into the Super 12s and the T20 World Cup has served up some thrilling games, as Ian Chappell warned: brace for upsets. Pakistan featured in two of the biggest nail-biters, against India and Zimbabwe, and came a cropper in both. Ireland aced a rainy game against England in a reprise of their 2011 World Cup win. Both teams had less luck in their games against Afghanistan and Australia, which were washed out at the MCG. Here's all the action from a busy week at the World Cup.
Eight balls, 28 to get, and Kohli does a Kohli - it was just meant to be
Virat Kohli roared back to form to carry India to a famous last-over win over Pakistan at the MCG. It came down to decisions and risks, as it often does in T20 cricket, says Sidharth Monga. Pakistan's decisions, none of them wrong, didn't work out, and Kohli's risks were rewarded. Alex Malcolm experienced the spectacle unfold before a crowd of 90,293 India and Pakistan fans and says there's never been anything like it at the MCG.
Ireland show better rain-smarts than England to stay ahead for just long enough
Ireland pulled off another fairy-tale World Cup win against England in a rain-shortened game, in no small part because they adapted their tactics better than England did, says Danyal Rasool. Alex Malcolm says the true significance of this win might lie with those who orchestrated it, not the opponents who were defeated, as Ireland's "golden generation" comes of age.
Zimbabwe's famous victory stokes belief that their sport has a future
Zimbabwe pulled off the other great upset of this round in a last-ball nail-biter that's left Pakistan on the brink, and the players are hoping this makes the case for cricket's marginalised teams.
