Commentary (Australia innings)

That's it from all of us here! Do switch over to the other tab for the India v South Africa coverage!

Raza Hasan has been named the Man of the Match for his disciplined spell of 2/14.

A brilliant performance from Pakistan to win the match! They did well to post a competitive total on the board. Raza and Hasan bowled a disciplined opening spell and got rid of the openers. Ajmal then got into the attack and destroyed the middle order. The Australians never got the momentum going and it took a stupendous performance from Hussey to push them through to the semis as Australia surpassed 112. Australia are into the semis and Pakistan will still have to wait for the result of the India v South Africa clash! They would want a South African win ideally but if India beat the Proteas by a good margin then Pakistan will be knocked out and India will go through.

19.1 U Gul to M Hussey, FOUR! Thumped! Australia have qualified for the semis! Wide outside off, Hussey slashes it away uppishly past point for a boundary and pumps his fist in delight as they qualify! 114/7

Pakistan have put up a competitive total on the board! They got off to a poor start losing Hafeez and Nazir in the first 6 overs. But Jamshed and Kamran Akmal stitched together a brilliant 79-run partnership for the 3rd wicket to bring them back in the match. Australia hit back hard at the death conceding 41 from the last 5 overs and picking up 3 wickets. Starc was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/20. It's going to be a tricky chase for the Kangaroos especially with Ajmal and Afridi in Pakistan's ranks! Join us in a while for Australia's reply!

19.6 M Starc to S Malik, Full on middle, Malik goes for a heave but mistimes it to mid-wicket for a single. Pakistan end on 149/6! 149/6

19.1 M Starc to S Afridi, FOUR! Smashed! Fullish on middle, Afridi smashes it muscularly over Starc's head for a boundary. 144/5

Imran Nazir and Mohammad Hafeez are the two batsmen at the crease. Xavier Doherty will start off proceedings for Australia.

The players have made their way out to the middle for the national anthems.

Pakistan - Mohammad Hafeez(C), Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Kamran Akmal(Wk), Shoaib Malik, Umar Akmal, Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridi, Umar Gul, Saeed Ajmal, Raza Hasan.

Australia - David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Hussey, Cameron White, George Bailey(C), Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade(Wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Brad Hogg, Xavier Doherty.

Toss - Australia have won the toss and elected to field. No changes for them. One change for Pakistan as Abdul Razzaq comes in place of Yasir Arafat.

Pitch - The track looks dry and might assist the spinners. The pacers too might get some assistance early on.

It's a crucial day for all the teams involved in the group, none of them have been guaranteed a semi-final berth. A win here for Australia will seal their semi-final spot. But if they lose then they might have to rely on the result of the India-South Africa match to go their way. Pakistan, on the other hand, need to win here and hope that South Africa beat India. If they lose and the Proteas win, then there will be a 3-way tie and the net run rate will decide who goes through. A cracker of a contest awaits.
