Australia fall of wickets vs Pakistan Group 2

As Pakistan and Australia makes their way into the Mohali ground, the heart beats are rising because of the pressure of this game. This is an important game for both of the teams yet for Pakistan it is their last chance to remain alive in this tournament. The math is simple here. Pakistan has to win this game and then will wait for a few more days before Australia faces India. In that game the second semifinalist from Group B will be decided. New Zealand has already qualified for the semifinals.

If Pakistan wins today then they will be on four points and will have their eyes on the Australia and India game. In that final game of Group B, If India wins then they will join New Zealand in the final four. But if Australia wins then India and Pakistan along with Australia will all be sitting on four points.

Then the net run rate will come into play and Pakistan has a better run rate compared to Australia and India. So Pakistan can only then get in to the semifinals. This looks tough but then cricket is a game where you can’t predict a result with utter surety especially in T20 format.

The stakes of the game were sky high and the Pakistan management had to be on their toes in terms of making key decisions related to the team. Mohammad Irfan was expensive in the game agaist New Zealand, so he understandably made way for Wahab Riaz who was dropped in the last outing.

Wahab had been phemomenal against Australia when the two sides met downunder in last year’s Cricket World Cup. Wahab did it against the Aussies yet again with two thumping wickets. He clean bowled Usman Khawaja in only his first over and then did the same David Warner. Imad Wasim then sent Aaron Finch packing Australia were three down.

If India beats Australia in their last pool game then Pakistan and Australia will be out of the race towards semifinals and both New Zealand and India will qualify for the final four. But if Australia wins then Pakistan, India and Australia all will have 4 points and the second team apart from New Zealand will be decided on net ran rate.
