Exciting defeat against Australia 11 years ago, today Pakistan wants to settle the score

The second semi-final of the T20 World Cup will be played today between Pakistan and Australia at the Dubai International Stadium. This is the second time in the history of the T20 World Cup when these two teams meet in the semi-finals. Previously, at the 2010 World Cup, these two teams met, in which Australia recorded a thrilling victory over 3 wickets.

In that game 11 years ago, Pakistan, batting first, had scored a 192-run goal against Australia, thanks to innings from Kamran Akmal (50) and Umar Akmal (56 no-outs). In response, the Australian team had lost seven wickets for 144 runs in 17.1 overs at a time. Australia’s top batting order collapsed in front of Mohammad Amir and Abdur Rahman’s bowling. But Mike Hussey’s 60 undefeated on 24 balls snatched the victory from Pakistan. David Warner, Steve Smith and Mohammad Hafeez, who were included in the XI of this match, are also included in the team this time.

Pakistan has a good chance of avenging this defeat of 11 years ago. The team has won every game in its group stage. Captain Babar Azam is the top scorer in the World Cup, his starting partner Mohammad Rizwan is third in terms of runs scored in the World Cup. Bowlers Haris Rauf and Shaheen Afridi are also in tremendous shape. Best of all, Pakistani gardeners look smart this time too. Pak’s outfielders have caught incredible catches at this World Cup. In such a situation, this team from Pakistan definitely seems to be paying the old bill.
