Pakistan's win over Bangladesh confirmed that they are the fourth semi-finalists in the tournament with India joining England and New Zealand earlier in following South Africa's exit.
Did you know the name of the team that reached the most number of times in the ICC T20 World Cup?
Well, that’s Pakistan.
Yes, Pakistan has reached six times in the ICC T20 World Cup while Australia, England, Sri Lanka, India, New Zealand, and West Indies appeared in the semis four times.
As per the statistics, South Africa reached the semi-finals twice in the previous tournaments.
The prospect of a mouth-watering final between India and Pakistan at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup has everyone excited, according to Australia great Shane Watson.
India and Pakistan successfully navigated different paths to the final four on a highly-fluctuating final day of Super 12 action on Sunday and now could be on track to meet in the T20 World Cup final if they each win their difficult semi-final match-ups.
Rohit Sharma's side takes on England in Adelaide on Thursday in a battle between the top two teams on the T20I Team Rankings, while Pakistan will have to conquer in-form New Zealand at the SCG on Wednesday if they are to reach the title decider.
Pakistan's chances of even reaching the semi-finals looked forlorn at the start of the day on Sunday, but the Netherlands’ upset victory over South Africa provided Babar Azam's side the opportunity to clinch an unlikely semi-final berth.
