Pakistan enter ICC World T20 semi-finals

     The Pakistan team has qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC World Twenty20, by defeating Australia by a big margin of 32 runs at the R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo. Australia finished their Group 2 engagements with a net run-rate of +0.464, while Pakistan had a net run-rate of +0.273, reports The News. Although India beat South Africa in a thrilling match by just one run and finished tied with Australia and Pakistan with four points each, it went out of the tournament because of an inferior net run-rate, the paper said. Pakistan will meet Sri Lanka in the first semi-final on Thursday while the second semi-final will be played between Australia and the West Indies on October 5. The final is slated for October 7.
