Curtains for Pakistan in ICC World Cup 2015
Adelaide: Australia beats Paksitan by 6 wickets to move on to the Semis' in ICC World Cup 2015 on Friday.
There's much to be said but the highlights below are evident of what transpired in the match.
Standing as the only potent threat between Australia and a place in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, Riaz bowled his heart out during a six-over spell of 2 for 24. From Pakistan’s perspective, that was never going to be enough, not after its batsmen had capitulated to 213 all out at the Adelaide Oval on Friday (March 20) evening.
Had Rahat held on to the dolly, Watson would have perished for a 16-ball 4, Australia nosedived to 83 for 4 in the 17th. Alright, there still was a fair amount of batting to come and Steven Smith was batting like a dream, but there is no gainsaying what the pressure of a knockout chase can do to even the best of teams. Had Sohail gobbled up Maxwell, it would have been 154 for 5, more tension. Not to be.
