Pakistan qualified for the T20 World Cup semi-finals after South Africa’s shock defeat to the Netherlands after a five-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Adelaide.

After losing to both India and Zimbabwe, a Super 12 exit seemed to be on Pakistan’s card, but Babal Azam’s team continued their hunt by beating the Netherlands and South Africa.

Sunday’s second half match would have been irrelevant had South Africa won their final group match in Adelaide, but Protea’s misstep meant a straight-up shootout between Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Bangladesh were limited to 127 for 8, so Shaheen Shah Afridi stood out 4 for 22. Najmul Hossain Shanto’s 54 of his 48 balls mattered for the Tigers to win the toss.

There was controversy when the verdict of lbw on the field against Shakib Al Hasan was upheld by the third umpire, as the technique was inconclusive as to whether the Bangladesh captain was at bat.

Bangladesh were 1 for 70 halfway through but lost momentum, with wickets regularly falling late in the innings.

Pakistan’s openers Babar and Mohammad Rizwan scored 57 in 10.3 overs, but the former appeared to lack fluency, while the latter was dropped and fired at Notts by wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan.

Babar contributed 25 of 33 deliveries, Rizwan ran balls 32, and Mohammad Harris 31 of 18 infused urgency into progress.

Shan Massoud took 24 balls from 14 and made sure there was no drama in the second half as Pakistan secured an eventual win with 11 balls to go.
