Semi final between pakistan and india is going to held at mohali

Shahid afridi is in full hope that they will win the semi final and finally encounter the final.

Team manager Intikhab Alam told that Shoaib, with little chance of featuring in the match, was lacking motivation.
"Shoaib has been fully involved in match practice, and is available for selection," Alam told the pakpassion website.
"He's very much part of the squad and there is no question about his motivation or enthusiasm to play in this important game. Akhtar is ready for the semi final.
"The rumours about Shoaib no longer focussing on cricket after announcing his retirement are false." Teammate Misbah-ul-Haq also defended his teammate who has featured in just three games at the tournament.
"Shoaib Akhtar is a class bowler," said Misbah. "He has performed for Pakistan on a number of occasions including the 1999 World Cup (when the team lost to Australia in the final)."
