Despite playing a good cricket of their existences, Pakistan keeps losing to Australia in the World Cup knockout stages. The Men in Green bowed out of the contest thanks to some truly excellent innings from those 2 men, Wade and Stoinis, who were absolutely fantastic after Australia appeared to be out of hope at one moment. Here is Australia vs Pakistan Match Highlights.

Australia vs Pakistan Match Highlights

When Aaron Finch introduced Glenn Maxwell into the box in the 3rd over, he failed, and Pakistan became conscious of their 5th bowler concern. Babar led the push to Australia, but when the field was established, the hopes were strengthened. Babar and Rizwan scored 71 runs for the first wicket, although it cost them 10 overs.

The Pakistan captain was surprised by leg-spinner Adam Zampa’s superb over and ultimately receiving his wicket. Pakistan was under pressure to boost the tempo, that is when Rizwan stepped up. In a further good partnership, the wicketkeeper-batter blasted several important boundaries, contributing 72 runs in just 7.2 overs. Fakhar Zaman provided excellent assistance for Rizwan, who maintained his excellent form by hitting 67 runs off 52 balls.

Asif Ali and Shoaib Malik were also dismissed quickly, but Fakhar Zaman provided the true momentum to Pakistan’s innings, returning to form just in time. In the later innings, he hammered Australia’s bowlers, particularly Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, who have been picked with the exception of a lot of runs combined in the last 3 overs.

Fakhar stood unbroken on 55 off 32 balls, hitting 3 fours and 4 sixes as Pakistan finished impressively at 176/4 in 20 overs.

When a spot in the final is on the line, a 177 race becomes rather exciting. Shaheen Afridi, the left-arm seam bowler, really fired up the stadium with his elevated bowling. He trapped Aaron Finch in front of the wickets for a golden duck, then grabbed Mitchell Marsh off alert with a yorker, only for the referee to take down the lbw decision. Chris Gaffaney made a wise judgment, according to the review.

Australia barely survived his first two overs, and then David Warner faced Imad Wasim, one of his preferred T20 bowlers. Mitchell Marsh also found his attacking touch, and Australia was off to a flying start. They passed the 50-run milestone in the first 6 overs, and the hunt was on course, headed by Warner.

Shadab Khan, on the other hand, has yet to have his greatest day in the competition, and he selected a large platform for it. The leg-spinner drew faults from the Australian batters, bringing up 4 wickets in his innings. Mitchell Marsh and Steve Smith were the first to be fired, followed by a strange sacking of Warner. In actual time, it appeared to be out, but the ultra-edge didn’t even show any spike, and surprisingly, even the hitter walked off, much to everyone’s shock.

Glenn Maxwell quickly followed as Shadab concluded with the greatest numbers for any bowler in the T20 World Cup semi-finals, 4/26. At 96/5 in the 13th over, it appeared as Pakistan had won, yet Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade have been out in the middle with a mission to really do.

The duo initially survived the storm under immense pressure, and when the scenario came right down to 63 runs off the final 5 overs, they opted to take circumstances into their own hands. Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf were taken for runs as the following 3 overs provided 40 runs. As Shaheen Afridi was given the assignment of bowling the most important over, Australia required 22 runs in their last 2 overs.

The seamer began the over really well, however, Wade was dropped in the distance by Hasan Ali, which upset Pakistan. The left-hander amazingly lifted one off the very next delivery for a 6, then backed it up with 2 more straight maximums to lead his team to victory in a nail-biter of a game.
