Pakistan bowled out for 213, Australia on Top

Aus-PakIn the third quarterfinal of the 2015 World Cup, favourites Australia have taken control of the proceedings by bowling Pakistan out for just 213 in 49.5 overs. Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat, but failed to capitalise on that.

Haris Sohail (41), Misbah (34), Umar Akmal (20), Sohaib Maqsood (29) and Afridi (23) were the top contributors. The Pakistani batsmen lacked energy and intent in the most crucial game today and kept throwing their wickets.

For Australia, Josh Hazlewood took four wickets, while Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell took two wickets each. Pakistan will be out of the World Cup if they lose today, as this is a knockout game.
