Aussies face tricky run chase after Akmal cameo

James Fitzpatrick | cricket20

A quick fire 42 from Kamran Akmal helped Pakistan take control of their t20 International against Australia after they recorded a total of 151-4 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Akmal smashed six boundaries from just 26 deliveries to leave the Aussies facing a run chase of 152 to save the series after they slumped to a seven wicket defeat against Pakistan on Wednesday night.

Mohammad Hafeez (45) amd Nasir Jamshed (45) got Pakistans innings off to the perfect start despite the early loss on under pressure opener Imran Nazir (0) who was bowled by Mitchel Starc (1-17) at the start of the second over.
