In last five T20 matches Pakistan have won 4 matches out of 5 against Australia but Australia last win in UAE was fa-bolus and make them confident for next matches. Their opening pair comprised on Warner and Watson are so much in form and hit hard in every game which makes a foundation for win to Australia. Statistically Pakistan as won 4 matches out of 5, they would also be confident against Australia, now they have a very good chance to win this match if they get through top four batsmen early. Big edge of Pakistan over Australia is spin bowling attach which makes Australians irritate, especially Ajmal and young Raza both are wicket taking bowlers who much upset-ed Australia in last series in UAE.
Pakistani performance in this tournament is not bad, they performed very nicely in every match except one against India. Their start in this competition was very good.Muhammad Hafeez captaincy is praiseworthy, he has won series against Australia and now provide good start in T20 event, usually in Pakistan , things take u-turn very fast.After loosing one match against India critics alleging Hafeez that he is not a captain and cannot handle pressure in a match. These praises and critics go side by side in Pakistan and any thing can happen utterly.

Australia is on top with 4 points and managed good run rate
