ICC World Twenty20 - 2nd semi final

Australia v Pakistan

Australia won by 3 wickets (with 1 ball remaining)

Toss: Australia have won the toss and chosen to bowl.

Clarke: It's a wonderful opportunity for both teams. Same team. No changes."

Afridi: "The boys are confident. No changes for us also."

Simon Doul with the pitch report: It's a very tough pitch to bat on and 140 should be a very good score.

Faisal: "what is Misbah doing in this line up??? he is a hugh failure and has been for while now! when will my fellow country men learn??"

Mike Jaggers: "I believe with the wet outfield and overcast conditions the aussie quick should make quick inroads. I believe it will be a close fought low scoring game. Finally a match where the bowlers decide the fortune."
