Pakistan on Sunday defeated Bangladesh and made its way to the semi finals of the T20 World Cup , booking a spot in the last four after all odds seemed against the team.

Shaheen Shah Afridi took 4-22 as Bangladesh posted 8-127, setting up an easy chase with Pakistan scoring 5-128 to win Sunday’s Adelaide Oval encounter with 11 balls to spare.

Pakistan joined India, New Zealand and England as semi-finalists.


Soon after Pakistan’s victory, the official twitter handle of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), while sharing a tweet of Prime Minister (PM) Shehbaz Sharif wrote, “Told you, did not he?”.

“We may not have the real Mr Bean, but we have real cricketing spirit .. and we Pakistanis have a funny habit of bouncing back :),” PM had written in his tweet, addressed to the President of Zimbabwe.
“Mr President: Congratulations. Your team played really well today,” it added.

The PM yesterday congratulated both Pakistan and the Netherlands.
