WORLD TWENTY20 final, Johannesburg: India v Pakistan

Pakistan Cricket team India Cricket team The inaugural Twenty20 World cup final, on Monday, is a marketing man's dream - with Pakistan taking on India.
India held its nerve against a brave charge by Australia to win the spectacle by a handsome margin of 15 runs after setting a target of 189 while earlier in the day, Umar Gul's sensational seam bowling and Imran Nazir's half-century ensured Pakistan the first spot in the ICC World Twenty20 final at New Zealand's expense. Chasing a target of 144 runs, after a combination of poor batting and excellent bowling restricted New Zealand to 143-8 from their 20 overs, Pakistan won the semi-final encounter at the Newlands cricket ground in Cape Town by six wickets after knocking off 147 runs in 18.5 overs. A middle order collapse had cost New Zealand vital runs after a promising start, Ross Taylor top-scoring with 37. At Durban, brilliant left-hander Yuvraj Singh hit 70 off just 30 balls as India won the toss and recovered spectacularly from a sluggish start to total 188-5. Australia crumbled when 30 were needed from the last three to end on 173-7.

WORLD TWENTY20 semi-final, Cape Town: New Zealand v Pakistan

Pakistan Cricket team New Zealand Cricket teamThe first semi-final, at Newlands in Cape Town on Saturday afternoon, pits Pakistan against New Zealand.
The Pakistan side finished at the top of their group, having won all three of their second round matches against Sri Lanka, Australia and Bangladesh. The only loss in this tournament was agaist India in a bowl out. Pakistan are notoriously erratic and can either be brilliant or dire, but seem to be doing well under their new coach, Australian Geoff Lawson. New Zealand who owe their place in the ICC World Twenty20 semi-finals thanks to India's heavy defeat of South Africa on Thursday night, lost to South Africa, but went through to the semi-finals by virtue of a better run rate. New Zealand have been impressive throughout the tournament, and it needed a brilliant 89 not out from Justin Kemp for South Africa to beat them in the only second round match that they lost.
