Sri Lanka vs Pakistan live commentary

So Pakistan are into the semis and Sri Lanka are sent packing. The Greens now face England in the semis as I, Sumedh Pande, will be back to bring you the live commentary and updates for the all-important semifinals. Stay tuned for all the cricketing updates as I take your leave after commentating on arguably the best match of the tournament so far. Goodnight gents!
Angelo Matthews: "Brilliant from Pakistan to hold their nerves. The wicket was stopping at times. We knew we could restrict them with the ball and we did just that. But they batted well. I'm proud of the boys despite the dropped catches. We gave our all in this game but this has been a good tournament. We had chances but lost the way in the middle."
Sarfaraz Ahmed: "This is an unbelievable moment. Amir played brilliantly. I told him to play his game and I will take care of the other. It was a difficult chase. I felt the pressure at times. The bowlers were brilliant today and all credit goes to them. Zaman also played well and is a great future player for us."
MAN OF THE MATCH - SARFARAZ AHMED.
