Pakistan post 176/4, Zaman, Rizwan hit 50s

DUBAI: Pakistan have set Australia a target of 177 in 20 overs.

In the first innings, Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan got Pakistan off to a dream start in Dubai. They smashed multiple boundaries, especially Azam, to take the side to 38/0 in 5 overs.

Rizwan found his touch soon after as the duo took PAK past 50 inside 7 overs. Eventually, they put on 71 for the 1st wicket before Babar Azam was dismissed by Adam Zampa on the final ball of the 10th over. Mohammad Rizwan and Fakahar Zaman continued the onslaught as they rebuilt quickly to take Pakistan to 117/1 after 15 overs. And Rizwan brought up his 3rd half century of the tournament. A big and a big toss to win for Aaron Finch.

The coin fell in his favour and Australia have elected to bowl first against Babar Azam-led Pakistan in semi final 2 of T20 World Cup 2021.
