Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, 2nd Semi-Final: Pakistan vs Australia

Pakistan will face Australia in the 2nd Semi-Final of the T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistan is the only team in the World Cup to have gone undefeated. They are the favourites to win the T20 World Cup this year based on their current form. In all five Super 12 games, the men in green used the same lineup. They are more familiar with the conditions in Dubai than any other team and will continue their winning trend.

On the other hand, Australia’s net run rate ensured their place in the semi-finals. In the last game against the West Indies, they reached the target of 158 with 22 balls remaining, earning them a place in the semi-finals. They finished second in Group 1 with 8 points after winning four games and losing one. David Warner will be their most important player.

 

Weather
With temperatures ranging from 26~29°C, another bright and sunny day is in the forecast.

 

Pitch
The ground in Dubai is expected to be bowler-friendly, particularly in the first innings. Because the ball may swing early on, both teams will want to win the toss and bowl first.
