LAHORE - Pakistan blind cricket team will take on England in the second semi final match of the Twenty-20 World Cup for Blinds Cricket Tournament today (Wednesday).

Pakistan team have remained unbeaten in the tournament being played in Bangalore, India, outclassing England, Australia, India, Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies and Bangladesh in the first round, reported a state TV channel.

Pakistan topped their group followed by arch-rivals India while Sri Lanka and England secured third and fourth positions respectively. Pakistan, in its last group match, defeated Nepal by 10 wickets.

Earlier, England secured a semi-final berth at the inaugural World Twenty20 with a convincing seven-wicket win over West Indies. An unbeaten 122 from opener Andy Powers eased England to a target of 214 with more than three overs to spare.

West Indies had earlier been restricted to 213 for six - a total that proved well within the reach of their opponents. Having met the expectations of national disabilities manager Ian Martin in reaching the last four, England will now take on Pakistan on Wednesday. Pakistan were one of three teams to defeat England at the start of this competition - together with fellow semi-finalists India and Sri Lanka - but Luke Sagg’s side have responded superbly with four straight wins.

India produced an all-round performance to crush South Africa by 288 runs and enter the semifinals of the Twenty20 World Cup for the Blind along with arch-rival Pakistan.

Electing to bat after winning the toss, India's top-order batsmen, Ganesh Bushara (80 off 31 balls), Dunna Venkatesh (79 off 31) and Hitesh Bhai Patel (72 off 26) did the bulk of scoring for the hosts who notched up a mammoth 355.

Chasing 356, all the South African batsmen, barring Lawrence Ruthven, failed to reach double digits, as Indian captain Shekar Naik (3 for 13) and vice-captain Ajay Kumar Reddy (2 for 14) did most of the damage with the ball. India will play Sri Lanka in the second play-off on Wednesday.
