ICC World Twenty20 - 23rd match, Group 2

Australia v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 32 runs

1.1

Starc to Mohammad Hafeez, OUT, you should have seen the swing! Starc comes over the wicket and gets it to swing back in sharply from the off stump line, Hafeez tried to flick it away but didn't read the movement, the umpire took his time, landed on off and replays showed that crashing into middle and leg

Mohammad Hafeez lbw b Starc 4 (6m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Pakistan 5/1   Imran Nazir 1* (2b)   MA Starc 0.1-0-0-1

5.4

Watson to Imran Nazir, OUT, Watson gets away with another full toss! Hardly a wicket-taking delivery but everything's going his way, Nazir meets it outside the leg stump and the ball hit the bottom half of the bat and spooned tamely to mid-off, easiest of catches, Nazir wouldn't want to see a replay of that, Nazir should have hit it straighter

Imran Nazir c Bailey b Watson 14 (27m 13b 2x4 0x6) SR: 107.69

Pakistan 29/2   Nasir Jamshed 10* (16b 1x4)   SR Watson 1.4-0-5-1

14.5

Doherty to Nasir Jamshed, OUT, holed out to long-on! Tossed up and he stayed at the crease and tried to loft him downtown, the ball dipped and landed safely in Warner's palms in front of the rope

Nasir Jamshed c Warner b Doherty 55 (60m 46b 4x4 2x6) SR: 119.56

Pakistan 108/3   Kamran Akmal 32* (25b 1x4 1x6)   XJ Doherty 3.5-0-27-1

15.1

Starc to Kamran Akmal, OUT, Pakistan have lost their well set pair in a matter of three balls! Starc begins his new spell by bowling full from round the wicket, Kamran made room and tried to hammer it wide of extra cover but the fielder there, White, took a sharp catch falling to his right

Kamran Akmal c White b Starc 32 (43m 26b 1x4 1x6) SR: 123.07

Pakistan 108/4   Umar Akmal 0* (1b)   MA Starc 2.1-0-6-2

18.4

Cummins to Abdul Razzaq, OUT, short ball outside off and Razzaq made himself a lot of room to carve that over the off side, he was targeting the third man boundary but the ball swirled just behind backward point, Watson takes the catch behind the circle

Abdul Razzaq c Watson b Cummins 22 (17m 17b 2x4 1x6) SR: 129.41

Pakistan 136/5   Umar Akmal 5* (5b)   PJ Cummins 3.4-0-38-1

19.2

Starc to Shahid Afridi, OUT, that's as much as it gets with Afridi these days, Starc swung it in sharply from round the wicket, Afridi shuffled a long way across and exposed his stumps and his leg stump went back a couple of yards

Shahid Afridi b Starc 4 (4m 2b 1x4 0x6) SR: 200.00

Pakistan 144/6   Umar Akmal 9* (7b 1x4)   MA Starc 3.2-0-16-3
