It will be quite a role reversal with Australia being the proverbial underdogs in Thursday’s semifinal of the T20 World Cup against a red-hot Pakistan who have displayed rare consistency to set alight the tournament.Aaron Finch’s Australia were written off after losing all five T20 series they played, including in Bangladesh, before heading into the tournament and have not looked entirely convincing despite making the last-four.

In a spin-dominated tournament, they have reposed faith in the pace of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins and favoured playing seven specialist batsmen. Adam Zampa has led their spin attack and with 11 wickets from five matches is the joint-leading wicket-taker of the Super 12 stage of the tournament.
