The final day of the Super-12 stage of the T20 World Cup threw up quite a few surprises leaving a possible India vs Pakistan final on the cards.

Pakistan, who were virtually knocked out of the tournament, stunned fans and experts by storming into semis courtesy second-place finish in Group 2.

Left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi's four-wicket haul helped Pakistan confirm their semi-final spot with a five-wicket victory over Bangladesh at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

The unpredictable nature of the tournament meant that this clash became a virtual knockout game as Netherlands shocked South Africa by 13 runs at the same venue earlier in the day.

With the winner to go into the semi-finals, Pakistan made the most of the unexpected lifeline as luck smiled on them to enter the last-four for the second time in as many editions of the tournament.

Now fans are predicting an Ind vs Pak final on November 13 at the MCG.

Here how the teams line-up in the knock-out round

1st semi-final: Nov 09, Wed

New Zealand vs Pakistan, Sydney Cricket Ground: 1:30 PM

2nd semi-final: Nov 10, Thu
