• Australia destroyed Pakistan`s hopes in a thrilling heavyweight contest in Dubai. Pakistan played their part, and showed why they have come so far in this tournament, but the bowling wasn`t quite at its best and that was enough to give Australia sight of victory.
• It was a painful defeat for Babar Azam`s team who looked invincible in this World T20, but the result proved once again that the team that peaks at the right time is the one that lifts the world cup.
