After a disappointing bowl-out defeat at the hands of arch-rivals India in a Group D World Twenty20 match at Kingsmead in Durban on Friday night, Pakistan appear to be in for an even tougher time as the Super Eights round begins in the tournament in South Africa from today (Sunday).
Pakistan will be playing in the freshly-formulated Group F against Sri Lanka who, on Saturday, achieved an emphatic seven-wicket triumph against New Zealand at Johannesburg to top Group C.
Pakistan then go on to play against the resurgent world champions Australia at Johannesburg on Tuesday. Their last match before next Saturday’s semifinals is against the enthusiastic Bangladesh outfit at Cape Town on Thursday.
The four teams in the Super Eights Group E are India, New Zealand, South Africa and England. By no means is the task going to be any easier in this group either.
The final of the inaugural World Twenty20 is all set to be played on Monday next week, September 24. The match starts at the New Wanderers in Johannesburg at 5.00pm Pakistan Standard Time.
