    Match Report

    A major upset happened today when the top seeded Pakistan lost to the unseeded Australia. For the unseeded Australians, it was their 10th (iirc) consecutive win over Pakistan

    Nothing went right (except for one over) for the top seeded, world champions and bowling powerhouse. The bowling attack comprising of some of the world's most talented bowlers gave away 190 runs to the Aussies. If not for the 20th over which produced 5 wkts, Aus could have reached a remarkable score of 200. Mohammed Aamer, hailed by many as the new Akram, put on a splendid performance to pick 3 wkts and get two RO in the 20 over of the OZ inning. The world champs had finally shown what they are capable of after taking hammering till the 19th over

    When the champions, after not so powerful bowling performance, came out to bat to chase the formidable total, Renowned Pak commentator Rameez probably thought Pak wrestled back the momentum in the final over they bowled and now it would be a cake walk for the explosive batting side which include player who are well versed in the art of swinging their bats in all directions. Little did he know that the March of the Pakistanis (inspired by the documentary the March of the Penguins) to the pavilion would began soon.

    The wickets started falling quickly but the hopes were still intact as the batting line up bats deep with 'all-rounders' like Aamer batting at #9. After a brief stay, the most promising young batsman the world, Umer Akmal departed. Now the hope rested on Pak captain Afridi, who is known to do 'anything' to help Pak win. In no time, the captain hit a few big blows. Rameez felt that two-three more overs of him and Pak would be home. But known to self destruct, Afridi got cleaned up pretty soon. He departed giving a suspicious look at the umpired probably feeling there was something wrong with the ball that got him out. Then walked in Razzaq, the all-rounder, who can change the game single handedly (ever wondered how many such players Pak has). But he didn't last long and with that the Pakistani hopes were gone. Soon the Australians picked up their 10th consecutive win against Pakistan making many ponder which was real top side out there!

    Now if Bangladesh wins by 9 or more runs or chase down whatever Australia puts on by the 18.5th over, they'll go into super eights at the cost of Pakistan.

    What if Bang win by 8 runs? Ban and Pak will be tied on NRR so by virtue of having won between themselves, will Pak go in?

    That's the second tie-breaker after NRR.

    From Cricinfo:

    If following the net run rate calculation above there are teams which are still equal, then the team with the higher number of wickets taken per balls bowled in the Group stage in which results were achieved will be placed in the higher position.

    Which will be Pakistan.

    Thanks scaly. Ban win looks hugely unlikely given Aus form.

    So, did Tait break the speed record this morning or not? Someone posted earlier that he did, haven't heard much said though if it's the case.

    Haha if cricinfo is to be believed, then Albie Morkel should have the record, for he bowled apparently a 164.7 snorter, curiously described as a slower one by their commentator

    And oh none of Mitchell or Nannes could manage anything above 110 either, and apart from that one, Tait was consistently bowling 135-140.

    There were some huge mistakes made today by Afridi when bowling....that cost us the game. Otherwise OZs are a joke in T20.

    Good to see Afridi's overrated captaincy skills getting exposed big time over here.He is virtually playing with 9 players as Alam and Razzaq only get in the game when the result is a formality.Has given heavy responsbility to two guys Hafeez and Sami which is unfair because

    a) they are making a comeback
    b) they are rubbish.

    It seems a huge deal is being made over this 'five-wicket maiden'. I know has probably never happened in international cricket before (probably not even in FC or LA) but I'd consider it more of an interesting statistic than a remarkable feat, as it would have been had it happened in the first over or even sometime in the middle.

    Props to Aamer on getting the first two wickets (off memory they were White and Haddin?), but getting two consecutive batsmen out trying to run byes in the final over is nothing really to be paraded around and heralded for.

    Regardless, congrats to Aamer for pulling off a feat that may never be seen again (until Tait gets a 6-wicket maiden against Bangladesh)

    So you had to trawl through over 300 matches to find isolated examples of when he's whacked top class fast men

    I, on the other hand, only had to lie on my couch and watch a couple of balls to be proven correct
