Talking about the Semi-Final match between Pakistan and Australia, it was an intense match, just like the New Zealand vs England match the day before.

Pakistan put on 176 runs on the board batting first, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman scored 50 plus runs. In reply to which, Australia did go off to a great start scoring 52 runs off the powerplay, but then the Shadab Khan magic started, as he Pakistani leg-spinner went on to dismiss Mitchell Marsh, Steve Smith, David Warner and Glenn Maxwell, after which Australia were down to 5 wickets for 96 runs.

But then, Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade took control of the inning. Then in the last 2 overs, Australia needed 22 runs with Shaheen Afridi with the ball.

It all happened in the penultimate over, from the ball getting edged but didn’t carry to the keeper, from LBW review, from dropped catch by Hasan Ali, to Matthew Wade smashing Afridi for 3 back-to-back sixes to wrap it off for Australia, who won by 5 wickets.
