Pakistan put on a contrasting show in the batting and bowling department. After bowling India out for 119, Pakistan put on a shocking display with the bat, restricted to 113/7 in 20 overs.

While analysing the match, Akhtar asked the fan's whether Pakistan deserve to qualify for the Super 8 phase or not.

"I know you guys are disappointed. Morale of the whole nation is down at the moment. I had said before the game that personal goals shouldn't really matter.

Tactics was simple, play normally, rotate strike, 5-6 an over. But in that period we had too many dot balls, the pressure was on us, and we lost three quick wickets. Can't expect too much from
