Wow, so Pakistan remain impossibly, inscrutably mercurial.

Whitewashed by England a couple of weeks ago in the bilateral ODI series, pulverized by the 8th ranked team in the world in their opening match, lost their previous 11 ODIs in a row - who in their right mind would've given Pakistan a chance today against tournament favorites England today? Who would've thought that the team that got skittled out for a 100 odd in their previous match would pile on a target of almost 350 today, and then defend it against the team that has twice posted the highest ODI score ever (including once against Pakistan itself) on this very ground, on this very pitch!?

Gotta say, I don't do drugs, but I can't imagine getting higher highs and lower lows than what being a Pakistan cricket fan entails.

I love that this article on Cricinfo basically straight-up admits it's probably best not to even try to make sense of Pakistan's victory: Samiuddin: Victory a tangle of threads that can't be untangled, unless it's Pakistan doing the untangling | ESPNcricinfo.com

Classic Pakistan, in a way I hope their unpredictability never changes. That Champions Trophy victory is still amazing.

Pakistan eh.

I'd been a little bit worried about New Zealand, especially after our close call against the Windies, and now here come Pakistan, knocking us off and improbably putting themselves in semi-final contention. Imagine if this team, so utterly written off by everyone, actually made it to the finals. It would be the most Pakistan thing to happen to world cricket.

Right now I am just desperately hoping Australia does not win, or the world cup will truly be irrelevant. I'd also prefer England and India not win it, because the dominance of the big three is bad for the global game. But gee I don't want to rely on my own country to be the force for good because we'll lose, and Pakistan, well...

I want Australia to win, but only if we play England or India in the final. Fuck those cunts. But if we play literally anyone else, fuck us.

I am so here for Pakistan. Look at all this shit...

The greatest cricket match of all time. The greatest tennis match of all time. One city. Same time. Absolutely insane what went down yesterday. I have never experienced such unmitigated, unrelenting stress in my life. Both Federer and NZ lost. I'm heartbroken, completely spent, but also privileged to have experienced two of the greatest sporting events of all time.
