Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir spoke in favour of the Pakistan players, who ended up losing against Australia in the semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup. Pakistan were in control at one stage of the game when the Aussies lost five wickets without even putting up 100 on the scoreboard. However, the arrival of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade brought the game in Australia’s favour.
They added more than 80 runs for the sixth wicket which took their team to a sensational win by five wickets. The two batters remained unbeaten till the end. Speaking after the match, Gambhir urged the fans to back Pakistan players as they are the ones, who win games and tournaments for the game.
According to Gambir, one bad match doesn’t make a player bad and the fans must remember this. Earlier, Pakistan scored a competitive total after being asked to bat first by Aaron Finch. Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman scored the fifties to take Pakistan’s total to 176 for 4 in 20 overs.
Meanwhile, Australia will face New Zealand in the finale of the T20 World Cup on November 14 in Dubai.
