What was your instant reaction to Pakistan's defeat?

Obviously, I was very disappointed because Pakistan was about to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. We have maintained our losing streak to India in World Cup matches. It's the lack of planning which explains our defeat. The players can't be blamed, the poor management should be taken to task. Throughout this Twenty20 tournament, the opening pair was a problem. One also wonders why players going for an international tournament are not trained to cope with pressure.
