Does amir start for Pakistan, he looked like he was going to be a potential ATG, has he still got it after the ban?

Start? Yes
Potential ATG? Not even close, barely picks wickets now, very economical though, and does look dangerous at times, but not the way he was before the ban

He should have known that what he was doing was wrong and was punished accordingly. I suppose being a famous sportsman with too much time in the company of prisoners affected his performance a bit....

First semi final tomorrow

We all England fans?

First knock out game between England and Pakistan since the 1992 final

Remember watching that and how the umpires won Pakistan the final

That is a big a humiliation as I've ever seen

Just hoping it's a blip.

The way Buttler got out was unforgivable. I can understand getting out to playing a shot. That's fine and acceptable. Whole point of the game is to score runs as a batting side but to get out blocking, embarrassing.

Also Stokes singlehandedly got Moeen and Rashid out. He slowed the innings meaning the other 2 had to take risks.

And the bowling lol. Never heard of Woods or Ball. Dump them. Bring Anderson and Broad back.

England have done well in nothing games for the last couple of years. Tournament comes up, they disappear.
