Neither England nor Pakistan topped their groups. It was New Zealand and India who took those honours but both the Men in Blue and the Black Caps fell to these to sides, respectively, at the semi-final stage.
New Zealand were limited by some incredibly tidy Pakistan bowling before openers Mohammed Rizwan and captain Azam Babar swiftly did the damage with their bats. For England, it was a total dismantling of the world ranked No. 1 T20 team, India. The Men in Blue picked up a respectable 168 runs off their 20 overs but didn't manage a single wicket as Alex Hales and Jos Buttler smashed their way past that total with an astonishing four overs to spare.
Pakistan will be an entirely different prospect for England with bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi looking very much revved up to speed after carrying an injury into this competition. His captain will be urging him to strike deep into the long-batting England order, while Buttler will throw everything at breaking Pakistan's openers. The stage is set for a classic.
