Pakistan will take on Australia in the T20 World Cup semi-final and will be riding on a wave of momentum after an inch-perfect tournament so far. Babar Azam and his men have been brilliant as they have won all their five games in the Super 12 stage.

Dubai's pitch has been batter-friendly and could be trusted to produce a high-scoring affair. If dew comes into play, bowling second could be tricky. Pacers might get some help towards the match's latter half, but the onus to control the pace of the game in the middle overs will lie with the spinners.
