Did Pak fail to make Semifinals of world cup because India deliberately lost against England.... do you accept this excuse?

    No. First, I don't accept the 'lost on purpose' argument. It was a very close game. England had the better day that day. But even had India 'thrown' the game, it couldn't guarantee the outcome we saw. Too many abandoned matches that might have made a difference, had they been played, to make that claim. India could have won that game and if Sri Lanka had won both of its games that weren't played, they would be sitting on 12 points and Pakistan would be right where they are, still out. England would also be out.

    I believe India had a bit to do and chose to save them selves for the semis where it really matters

    No i just believe England and Australia were the better teams when they played against India and NZ.

    Pakistan played really good but the game against WI is what pretty much destroyed their chance at getting into the semis.

    Best of luck to India, England, NZ and Australia.

      A Pak expert said so openly and plenty of Pak fans believe it to be true !!
      This is what happens when the team starts regressing !! The usual formula will apply..... change the captain.... sad state of affairs.
