PAK vs AUS: After a fantastic performance in their previous games, Pakistan are all set to take on Australia at the Dubai International Stadium. Pakistan went five for five in their group stage matches of Super 12 while Australia bagged four wins. This will be a fierce competition to see who makes it to the Grand Finale of the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan last played Scotland and the result was as one would’ve expected. Babar Azam’s 47-ball 66 & Shoaib Malik’s astonishing 18-ball 54* helped Pakistan get to 189/4. Richie Berrington top-scored with his unbeaten 37-ball 54 but couldn’t help Scotland get over the line. Shadab Khan’s 2/14 helped Pakistan restrict Scotland to 117/6 and win the match by 72 runs.
Meanwhile, Australia picked up a dominant win against the West Indies. Batting first, Kieron Pollard’s 44 was overshadowed by Josh Hazlewood’s 4/39 as West Indies got to a par total of 157/7. While chasing 158, David Warner smashed a blistering 56-ball 89* followed by Mitchell Marsh’s 32-ball 53 helped Australia bag an eight-wicket win with 22 balls left.
In the upcoming match-up, Pakistan and Australia will have equal dominance over the other. However, with the form Pakistan are in, they have the upper hand.
