Aussies beat Pakis by 21 runs

Fri, Mar 25, 2016, 06:25 PM
Pakistan made a valiant effort to cross the 192 run target set by Australia at Mahauli on Friday and went down fighting. Pakistan in the event scored 172/8, giving Australia a win by 21 runs.

With 30 runs to score off the last six balls, Pakistan scored 172 runs only.

Australia winning may have put paid to the hopes of not only Pakistan but India as well because of its better net run rate.

India will be playing the last league match with Australia at Mahauli on Sunday. But that maybe a routine exercise rather than serious play owing to the better net run rate of Australia.

The Aussies can afford to lose on Sunday and still be in the reckoning provided they maintain the run rate. India has no such luxury.

India will have to do a great deal more to get a semi-final berth, not only beating Australia but also beating it by a big margin.

India can only hope for a miracle like the one with Bangladesh to overcome Australia and get a seminfainal berth.
