PAK vs AUS ICC T20 World Cup 2021 2nd Semi-Final Match Preview:
Pakistan will be playing against Australia in the second Semi-Final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on the 11th of November. 11 years down the lane when these two sides met in a T20 World Cup Semi-Final, the world witnessed the sensational batting of Michael Hussey that snatched the win from the jaws of defeat against the same side.
This will be the fifth T20 WC Semi-Finals for the second-ranked Pakistan side while the sixth-ranked Aussies will be making their fourth appearance in the Semi-Finals of this tournament. Pakistan is the only team that hasn’t lost a single game in this edition so far, whereas Australia faced their only defeat at the hands of England in their third league stage match.
Pakistan started their T20 WC campaign with a chest-thumping 10-wicket win against their arch-rivals India, which was also Pakistan’s first win in World Cups against their neighbours. They then defeated the Kiwis by 5 wickets, and never looked back post that wins.
They went on to defeat Afghanistan, Namibia, and Scotland and ended up topping their group’s table. Bowling has been Pakistan’s greatest strength in the recent while, and the same has been the case in this tournament as well. Haris Rauf has hunted a total of 8 scalps in 5 games for them.
Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan, and Hasan Ali have been in fine rhythm as well. Their batting, which was their weakness, has been the biggest optimism for the side in this season, with almost all of the batters looking in fantastic touch. Their skipper Babar Azam is the leading run-scorer of the ongoing tournament, with 264 runs in just 5 games, while maintaining a remarkable average of 66. He has struck 4 half-centuries so far.
His opening partner Mohammad Rizwan is not much below him in the list, who has 214 runs to his name, with an even better average of 71.33. They have looked the most formidable and complete side so far, and are reckoned as the probable side to win this tournament this year. They will need to continue their A-game for a couple of more games to manifest their dreams of clinching their second T20 WC title.
When Australia lost the 5-match T20I series to Bangladesh 4-1 before the commencement of the World Cup, almost everyone wrote them off. Australia started their journey with a couple of good wins, against South Africa and Sri Lanka. In their third game, England hunted them one-sided and blurred their dreams of the semi-finals. However, they won their next couple of games by convincing margins and entered the semi-finals.
The rejuvenation of David Warner in form has strengthened their batting massively. The left-hander, who had a pretty modest IPL season, has struck 187 runs in 5 games so far, averaging 46.75. In the bowling section, Adam Zampa is the third-leading wicket-taker in the tournament so far, picking 11 scalps in 5 games.
Josh Hazlewood (8 wickets) and Mitchell Starc (7 wickets) have looked good too. They are still eyeing their maiden T20 WC title and they know they have it all that requires. The key, for them, lies in the implementation of their plans appropriately.
Pakistan and Australia have met a total of 23 times in this format so far, with Pakistan currently leading the head-to-head records by 13-9. In the 6 games that these two sides have met in the T20 World Cups, both the teams have won 3 each, with Australia winning the latest one (2016 T20 WC) by 21 runs.
Pakistan has been unstoppable so far in this season and has blown away every side that came in its way, the team seems to have come here with a strong purpose and plan, and is executing those to perfection. It will need a comprehensive team effort from the Aussies to curtail the Pakistanis.
