Australia reached the World Twenty20 semifinals despite a 32-run loss to Pakistan in the Super Eights on Tuesday.
Pakistan scored 149 for 6 off its 20 overs but Australia gave up chasing the win after Shane Watson and David Warner were dismissed for 8 each. Instead, Australia went after the 112 runs it needed to seal a place in the last four, and finally got there when Mike Hussey hit a boundary off fast bowler Umar Gul with the first ball of the last over.
