Pakistan, the 2009 champions, take on Australia in the second semi-final of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Thursday (November 11).

Babar Azam's team is the only unbeaten side in the tournament so far and all five wins have been convincing, including a 10-wicket mauling of pre-tournament favourites and bitter-rivals India.

The winner of the second semifinal between Australia and Pakistan will meet New Zealand in the finals of the T20 World Cup.

Pakistan qualified for the last-four stage for the fifth time.

Australia, on the other hand, have won four and lost one in five Super 12 matches. They finished second in their group to enter the semifinal for the fourth time.

The clash will be a repeat of the 2010 semifinal at Gros Islet, Saint Lucia on May 14, where Australia swept the Green Shirts aside to win by three wickets with just one ball remaining.

Head-to-head

Pakistan have won 12, lost nine, tied one and abandoned one in their 23 T20 International matches played against Australia. They have won three and lost three in six matches played against Australia in T20 World Cup.

Pakistan have won two, lost two and abandoned one in the last five T20I matches played against Aussies.

But in their last T20I meeting, the Aussies defeated Pakistan by 10 wickets at Perth on November 8, 2019.
