He hit 59 against Sri Lanka and followed it up with a 74 against South Africa in the quarterfinal. "Irrespective of the result, at least the guys would have got to feel what it is to play an India-Pakistan game", explained Dravid, the coach. And place in a World Cup final is at stake.

Manager of the team Nadeem Khan said that the players are fully aware of the importance of the match and they are "pumped up". They beat Zimbabwer by 10 wickets in their last game of the round robin stage. In the first semi-final Australia defeated Afghanistan by six wickets.
