Therefore, Mohammad Amir's first-ever 5-wicket haul went in vain, as Australia won by 41 runs. 
David Warner received his second man of the match award of the tournament for his first-rate century. 

That's all from us, hope you enjoyed the coverage of this thrilling encounter. Do tune in to Sportskeeda tomorrow, as we bring to you the live coverage of the highly anticipated game between India and New Zealand. Until next time, good bye. 
In reply, Pakistan lost Fakhar Zaman early, but Imam Ul Haq and Babar Azam looked fantastic. Australia struck in regular intervals, but notable partnerships in the middle order had Pakistan in front. 
However, three wickets in as many overs in the middle phase of the innings helped Australia claw their way back, but Wahab Riaz's 45 had Aaron Finch biting his nails. 
In a game encircled by emotional highs and lows, Mitchell Starc came back to do what he does best with the opposition tail - leave them for dead.  
Having lost the toss, Australia were put into bat first. The pitch looked fresh, and it was always going to revolve around how the top three of either side played. Warner (102) scored his first century since December 2017, and batted beautifully alongside skipper Aaron Finch (82). The middle order got starts, but none of the players capitalized. As a result, the defending champions fell short by 35-40 runs. 
That's done and dusted! The match swung and flung like a pendulum throughout its course, but Australia held their nerves to claim their third win in four games and go level on points with table-toppers New Zealand.
