SAINT LUCIA: Australia took down Pakistan in a closely contested match at the World Twenty20 semi-final, which saw the Aussies pull through despite the green shirts putting up an epic 191 runs on the board.

For Pakistan, Kamran Akmal made an outstanding 50, while Umar Akmal followed up with a half-century of his own.

The Australian innings saw an aggressive attack by the top order, and although Pakistan were able to take critical wickets to turn the pressure up Australia came through with 197/7.

Australia will now face England in Sunday’s final at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, after Paul Collingwood’s side convincingly defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the first semi-final at Beausejour on Thursday.
