Australia initially lost wickets frequently. David Warner (49 off 30, three four, three six) kept the pace. After that, Wade (41 did not come out in 17 balls, two fours, four sixes) and Stoinis (40 did not come out in 31 balls, two fours, two sixes) showed their aggression and Shadab Khan (4 for 22 runs) thwarted his efforts.

Australia took full advantage of the Pakistan conflict. In the past, Afridi showed his initial shock and surprised Aaron Finch by pulling out his leg. Warner rode in six consecutive innings from Imad Wasim while Mitchell Marsh (28 off 22 balls) received Haris Rauf with six wickets. With this Australia managed to make 52 runs in Powerplay.
Marsh, however, shook the air to Shadab’s twisted leg shortly after. Warner sent Mohammad Hafeez twice to clear for six runs and then hit Shadab for six but Steve Smith (five) lost his ropes by swinging the ball in the air like Marsh. Warner could not finish his middle years. The Shadab ball took the edge of his shot and was caught by Rizwan’s gloves.
Although replays showed the ball did not hit, Warner did not check again. Shadab took the fourth goal as Glenn Maxwell (7), whose strike went into the hands of the player. Australia needed 50 runs in the last four overs. Stoinis beat Haris Rauf and Wade beat Hasan Ali six and four. After this Wade’s bat showed up amazingly. In the past, Australian sprinter Josh Hazlewood (49 runs in four overs), Mitchell Starc (2 for 38) and Pat Cummins (1 for 30) were overseen by Pakistani strikers but spinner Adam Zampa (1 for 22) and Glenn Maxwell (20). runs in three overs) cheap overs.
Babar and Rizwan also made a good start in Pakistan. They all scored 47 unbeaten in a strong match, the most successful in Pakistan in the first six matches of the tournament. Finch attempted a spin attack in the form of Maxwell in the third straight. Rizwan did not open the account when Warner threw hard fish at the border line. Rizwan used this and hit six on Hazlewood. But after that, Maxwell and Zampa started forcing, which looked good on the strikers.
Babar sweeps the slog under this pressure in the first part of Zampa kicking the leg and gives Warner a simple long-lasting grip. He hit four of his innings. As the pressure intensified in Pakistan, Rizwan completed 1000 runs in the T20 Internationals calendar year and hit six per square foot from Zampa. He is the first cricket player in the world to do this.
The Starc shooter hit Rizwan’s hat but it did not shake his faith. He also hit six more in Hazlewood in the 14th hour to score more than 100 goals for the team and finish his third round of competition in 41 balls. Rizwan also scored six in this over. Rizwan removed it from Starc but Fakhar was kind. He scored three goals against Starc but Asif Ali (zero) and Shoaib Malik (one) were unable to make a surprise move.
