Preview

Pakistan and Australia are set to cross swords in the semifinal two of the 20-20 World Cup. The former has been unbeaten in the tournament, while the latter has lost just a single game against England in the Super 12 stage. Both teams have strong bowling attacks and it will boil down to the sides' batting strength.

Pakistan have a solid opening pair in the form of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan. Seasoned campaigner Shoaib Malik has also looked solid and has helped the team finish well. The only concern for Pakistan will be the form of Fakhar Zaman and Hasan Ali. The duo have looked a bit of colour in the 20-20 World Cup. The former has failed to post a big score, while the latter has leaked runs in the death overs.

Skipper Azam has backed the duo to come good against Australia in the semis. On the other hand, Aaron Finch-led team are peaking at the right time. Warner has found his mojo back and is looking threatening. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has also supported him well and demonstrated his power-hitting.

Steve Smith has struggled to post big scores but rule out the gun batter at your own risk. Smith is known to deliver during the crunch games and Finch would be hoping he scores big in the semis.
