Australia demolished the Pakistani bowling attack at Gros Islet to post an intimidating total of 191 after winning the toss.

Australia demolished the Pakistani bowling attack at Gros Islet to post an intimidating total of 191 after winning the toss. Apart from a highly dramatic last over that saw five wickets going down along with a maiden, it was all Australia's domination through a stroke-filled third wicket stand of 98 between Shane Watson and David Hussey. With both batsmen competing with each other in hitting sixes, Australia rocketed their way to a massive total. Watson smacked 7 fours and 4 sixes in his 81 which came in just 49 balls. David Hussey on the other hand clobbered five sixes and 2 fours in a 29-ball 53.

Mohammad Aamer was the one bowling the magic last over in which not even a single run was scored. Aamer missed the hat-trick but Pakistan got five wickets in five consecutive deliveries which included two direct hits from Wicket Keeper Kamran Akmal. The Pakistani fielding otherwise was simply terrible with quite a few catches going down along with the fumbles.

The Aussies are favourites by a long way to win this match and it certainly is a big test for the Pakistani batsmen against the high quality attack.
