Australia Defeats Pakistan to Reach T20 World Cup Final

INTERNATIONAL: Australia has reached the Twenty20 World Cup final with a five-wicket victory over Pakistan in the second semi-final on Thursday. The triumph against Pakistan will lead them to a game against New Zealand on Sunday. T20 World Cup Final is being held at Dubai International Stadium, famous for its “ring of fire.”

Set 177 for victory, David Warner made 49 before Australia rode unbeaten cameos from Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade to clinch the win with one over to spare. Earlier, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman smashed breezy half-centuries to help Pakistan post 176-4 at the Dubai International Stadium.

Put in to bat, Pakistan got off to a strong start with Rizwan and skipper Babar Azam forging a 71-run partnership for the opening wicket.

Fakhar provided the late charge for the 2009 champions with an unbeaten 55 off 32 balls. New Zealand beat England in the first semi-final in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
