Australia have elected to bat first in their World T20 Super 10 stage clash against Pakistan in Mohali on Friday, 25 March.
Both the teams need a victory to stay alive in the tournament. If Australia win, Pakistan will bow out, and the match with India on Sunday will become a virtual quarter-final.
However, if Pakistan defeat Australia by a decent margin, and Australia beat India, Pakistan will enter the semi-finals on a better net run rate.
If India beat Australia, it will knock out both the teams and join New Zealand from the group in the semi-finals.
In Group 1, South Africa will take on West Indies in the evening at Nagpur. A victory for the Windies will get them a semi-final berth.
Prediction: Australia to win
With the Pakistan batting line-up struggling for form, Australia are being touted as the favourites to win the match. Pakistan, who have struggled in chasing down big totals, will have a tough task ahead of them if they fail to restrict Australia to a small score.
