Hosts India defeated Pakistan yet again in a World Cup clash and this time it paved their entry into this edition's Finals! It was a 29-run win for India as Pakistan failed to come good with the bat under pressure chasing 261 to end up with 231 all out.
India upstaged archrival Pakistan by 29 runs in the so-called "mother of all World Cup matches" to progress to the final against Sri Lanka, giving Sachin Tendulkar another chance to reach his 100th hundred after his charmed innings fell just short on Wednesday.
India's opener Virender Sehwag completed his 1,000 runs against Pakistan in One-day Internationals (ODIs) when he drove the second ball of the World Cup semifinal, bowled by Umar Gul, to the cover boundary at the Punjab Cricket Association (PCA) Stadium here on Wednesday.
Mohali pitch expected to help the batsmen… Its a flat wicket and is going to help the seamers more than the spinners… So the side with better fast bowling attack will have the advantage but Indian fans says about Sreesanth & Chawla are strictly no no.
The PCA stadium at Mohali would be fortunate hosts for a cracking semifinal between India and Pakistan tomorrow. The ground hardly hosts ODIS, but the last 5 ODIS have been interesting to watch with one of the reasons being that it produces one of the best pitches in the country and the ground has excellent player-friendly facilities.
