ICC Twenty20 Cricket 2010 at Kensington Oval: UK has Barmy Army… Are these “Whacky Paki”?

Defending champions Pakistan were on the brink of elimination from the World Twenty20 after losing to New Zealand by just one run in a thrilling Super Eights match on Saturday.

Victory for South Africa over England in Saturday’s other Group “E” match at the Kensington Oval would mean Pakistan no longer had a chance of reaching the semi-finals.

Recalled New Zealand fast bowler Ian Butler took an impressive three wickets for 19 runs as opener Salman Butt, who finished on 67 not out, so nearly saw Pakistan to victory after a top-order collapse. Pakistan, chasing 134 to win, finished on 132 for seven in reply to the 133 for seven New Zealand made after losing the toss. {YAHOO! has rest of story}
