As a consequence, Australia won by 5 wickets with 6 balls remaining. The most entertaining encounter of the T20i World Cup so far took place on Thursday at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, in the 2nd Semi-final. Australia defeated Pakistan by five wickets while chasing a 177-run mark. Pakistan, who had gone undefeated into the semi-final, was the favourite to win, but Australia had other ideas. Aaron Finch elected to bowl first after winning the toss. To begin, the Pakistani openers put up another strong performance, with Baber’s 39 runs and half-centuries from Rizwan (67 off 52 balls) and Fakhar Zaman (55 off 32 balls). Pakistan posted a very good total of 176/4 in their 20 overs.
In chase of the target, Australia lost their captain in the opening over of the innings when Shaheen Afridi trapped Finch for a duck. But, since then, Warner took the charge and led Australia to within striking distance of the target before getting out to Shadab Khan, which was later shown as “Not Out.” Following that, Pakistan continued to take vital wickets, particularly Shadab Khan, who took 4-26 in his four overs.
However, Australia’s final batting pair of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade kept the game alive and eventually won it with an undefeated partnership of 81* runs. The game was decided in the 19th over by Shaheen Afridi, when Hasan Ali dropped the catch of Matthew Wade, and Wade then slammed three consecutive sixes off Shaheen to win the game and advance to the finals. As the game ended, Twitter was inundated with tweets from all across the world. And we’ve compiled a list of some of the most interesting tweets.
