Buoyant Pakistan look to stop Aussie juggernaut

Pakistani captain Misbah-ul Haq throws a ball during a training session in Brisbane on February 26, 2015History favours Australia, but Pakistan’s astonishing ability to conjure magical wins promises enthralling cricket during their World Cup quarter-final at the Adelaide Oval on Friday. Misbah-ul-Haq’s men are determined to replicate the success of their predecessors under Imran Khan who won the tournament Down Under in 1992 — and their paths bear an uncanny similarity. This time, Pakistan lost their opening two games against arch-rivals India and the West Indies before resurrecting their campaign with four straight wins to make the knock-out rounds. As Pakistan prepared to face their biggest challenge in the tournament — playing Australia on their own turf — Misbah hoped the momentum gained over the past two weeks will see Pakistan through.
