Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman played knocks of 67 and 55 as Pakistan scored 176/4 against Australia in the second semi-final of the ongoing ICC Men`s T20 World Cup here at the Dubai International Stadium.


Asked to bat first, Pakistan got off to a steady start as openers Babar Azam and Rizwan put on 47 runs inside the first six overs. Both batters put on 71 for the first wicket, and this partnership was finally broken by Adam Zampa in the 10th over. Babar (39) looked to break the shackles by scoring a six, but he only managed to hand a simple catch to David Warner.


Fakhar Zaman joined Rizwan in the middle and the duo did not let the momentum drop for Pakistan. The duo registered boundaries at regular intervals and after 15 overs, Pakistan`s score read 117/1. Rizwan and Zaman went all guns blazing and heading into the final three overs, Pakistan had nine wickets in hand. Rizwan (67) was sent back to the pavilion by Mitchell Starc in the 18th over and this brought the big-hitting Asif Ali in the middle. In the final three overs, Pakistan managed to
add 33 more runs to take their total past the 170-run mark.


Brief Scores: Pakistan 176/4 (Mohammad Rizwan 67, Fakhar Zaman 55*; Mitchell Starc 2-38) vs Australia.
