Seamer Josh Hazlewood made light work of Pakistan batsmen as his four-fer helped Australia restrict them to a paltry total of 213 in the third quarter-final of 2015 World Cup at Adelaide. 

After choosing to bat, Pakistan got off to a worst possible start as they lost both their openers Ahmed Shehzad and Sarfraz Ahmed inside the first six overs. Haris Sohail and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq then steadied the ship with their 73-run partnership but both got out in quick succession leaving Pakistan reeling at 112/4 in 27 overs. Mitchell Starc and Glenn Maxwell kept the pressure on in the middle-order and as a result, none of the batsmen were able to capitalize on their starts and Pakistan got all out with a ball to spare. Sohail top-scored for them with 41 whereas the likes of Misbah, Umar Akmal, Sohaib Maqsood failed to make their starts count. For Ausralia, offie Maxwell took two crucial wickets of Akmal and Misbah. 

Brief Scores: Pakistan 213 (Sohail 41, Hazlewood 4-35, Starc 2-40) vs Australia
