So, for the fifth time in a row, an Asian team makes it to the final.
1992: Pakistan (won)
1996: Sri Lanka (won)
1999: Pakistan (lost)
2003: India (lost)
2007: Sri Lanka
Sadly for New Zealand, it was the fifth time they've reached the semi-finals and not gone any further.
The second semi-final is tomorrow. The out-of-sorts South Africans take on the all-conquering Australians -- still undefeated in the World Cups of this century.
