Two excellent half-centuries from Misbah and Malik have almost certainly taken Pakistan through to the semi-finals, unless Bangladesh pull off two major upsets. Paksitan's bowlers did bowled extremely well during the final stages of Australia's innings to restrict them to 164.

Misbah-ul-Haq is the Man of the Match for his 66 off 42 balls. It was a splendid innings under pressure after Pakistan had lost their top-order cheaply. Thank you for tuning into Cricinfo's coverage of this match. This is George Binoy signing off, cheers.
