PAK vs AUS Live Cricket Score, ICC World Twenty20, 2014 Commentry

!

Umar Akmal is named the Man of the Match. That's all from this game. Let's hope that the India vs West Indies game coming up now very shortly also gives us plenty of entertainment.

The target was a huge one for Australia, 192 and the start wasn't ideal. Zulfiqar Babar removed Warner and Watson in the first over itself but then the counter-attacking from Australia was breath-taking. It was a one-man show from the Big Show, Glenn Maxwell and the most attractive part of his batting was his hundred percent clean hitting. Aaron Finch played a handy part but he could never accelerate after Maxwell got out. Bailey, Hodge never got going and eventually, Pakistan trumped easily.

!

Eventually, Pakistan hold their nerves and keep their hopes alive in the Super10s. The best match of the Super10 stages so far and it's not based on how close the match was, it was based on two sparkling innings, which could have given either side a victory. Australia put Pakistan to bat first and Umar Akmal put on a dazzling display of batting alongside his brother, Kamran and just about narrowly missed out on a century.

OUT! Bowled him and PAKISTAN WIN BY 16 RUNS! A good length ball, Hogg totally misses it and loses his leg stump. Sighs of relief from the Pakistanis. They know they've had to work hard for this win.

OUT! Taken in the deep and Pakistan on the verge of victory. They kept 4 fielders at the mid-wicket fence for Haddin and he took on a full ball but sent it straight down the throat of Malik at wide deep mid-wicket.

Bilawal Bhatti to Brad Haddin

OUT! Firstly, a DROP and then Starc sacrifices. A full ball outside off, Haddin smashes it towards cover where Afridi puts down a tough chance. Starc runs back for the second but there wasn't any. Afridi gathers the ball quickly and threw. Umar Akmal did the rest.

Extra-ordinary turn of events! Yet another doosra and Coulter-Nile fails to slog it away. Ajmal, hats off! Just 1 run conceded in a pressure 18th over!
