Pakistan has already won the first Twenty20 match which was played 2 days ago against the Australians. Yesterday, second 20-20 match was played at Edgbaston, Birmingham, England. Pakistan again in this match won the toss and elected to bat first.

Shahzaib Hasan returned to pavilion without scoring any run in the very first over itself. After the fall their first wicket, rest other players batted well and contributed some runs from their side to the team. This really helped the team to put a decent total against the Aussies. By 20 overs, Pakistan scored 162 runs loosing 9 wickets. Stephen O'Keefe and Dirk Nannes took 3 wickets each.

Australia needed 163 runs to win, this was not at all great score but the bowling attack is very good from Pakistan side. Hence it was an real challenge to chase down the target. Australians played well but some batsmen failed to contribute some runs to their team. By 19.4 overs, Australia lost all its 10 wickets scoring 151 runs in total. Pakistan won the match by 11 runs. Mohammed Aamer took 3 important wickets and also bowled well.
