Shahid Afridi, a former Pakistan captain, and cricketer recounted the “amazing” semi-final of the 2010 T20 World Cup, in which Pakistan was defeated by Australia in the last over.
When Michael Hussey hammered Saeed Ajmal for 17 runs in the penultimate over, the left-handed batsman lifted Australia from an almost unwinnable situation and guided Australia to the T20 World Cup final.
In the penultimate over, he had hammered two sixes and a four to give Australia the victory.
Afridi urged the Men in Green to “do one step better today” on Twitter.
“Pakistan, all the best! This game is as important to me as the championship game. In 2010, we had a wonderful semi-final versus Australia, and I hope Babar and his team can go even better today! “He sent out a tweet.
In the Super 12 stage of the competition, Pakistan went unbeaten, defeating India, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Namibia, and Scotland.
Babar Azam, who gave a virtual news conference the day before, expressed confidence that the Men in Green will retain their momentum and play well against Australia in the semi-final.
Minor problems have been pointed up in all of the matches, with some relating to batting and others to bowling, according to Babar.
Fielding failures were also detected on occasion, he said.
“It’s great that we’re attempting to resolve these difficulties,” he remarked.
