Lawson predicts Pakistan-New Zealand final

Impressed with their consistent showings in the tournament so far, former Pakistan coach Geoff Lawson on Sunday backed Shahid Afridi and his men to emerge winners in the much-anticipated World Cup semi-final against India.
"Pakistan have played some good cricket, their guys look really good... and it could be a Pakistan-New Zealand final" Lawson, who coached Pakistan for 15 months since July 2007, told reporters here.
Pakistan, who thrashed West Indies by ten wickets in the quarter-final, are set to take on India in a high-voltage clash in Mohali on Wednesday, while New Zealand play Sri Lanka in the other semi-final a day earlier.
Lawson, who is presently the coach of Indian Premier League team Kochi Tuskers, pointed out that Pakistan had defeated India in Mohali in 2007.
The former Australian speedster, who succeeded Bob Woolmer as Pakistan's coach in July 2007, was sacked before his two-year contract ended, despite leading the team to the final of the inaugural ICC World T20 in South Africa.
