Indian Men Failed; Women enter semifinals

The semi-final line up is confirmed after the last two matches in the ICC World Twenty20 2009 tournament. India once again failed to rise its game and were handed their third defeat in as many games in the super eights stage. The first semi-finals will be played between winner of group E, South Africa, and second placed team in group F, Pakistan. Sri Lanka, winner of group F, will clash with West Indies from group E.

The schedule of semi-finals is as follows:

Jun 18: Pakistan vs South Africa
Jun 19: Sri Lanka vs West Indies

Interestingly, Pakistan is the only team to have reached the semi-finals stage of both the World T20 tournaments, in 2007 and 2009.

ICC Women's World Twenty20 2009
Nature has created men and women to complement each other. They have completely contrasting characters, beliefs and behaviour. This is completely reflected in the World Twenty20 tournament too. The countries that have qualified for the men's semi-finals have failed to reach the last four in women's tournament and vice-versa. South African men won all three matches to finish on top of the group while South African women lost all three matches to finish at bottom of the group.

While Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and West Indies would be competing in the men's event, it is left to India, Australia, New Zealand and England in the women's tournament.

The schedule of women's semi-finals is as follows:

Jun 18: India vs New Zealand
Jun 19: England vs Australia

It could be much consolation for most of the countries, as at least one of their teams had qualified to the last four stage.
