Australia captain Aaron Finch couldn't hide his delight on the eve of his team's semifinal at the T20 World Cup when he said that "we came here with a really clear plan to win this tournament, and we're still alive to do that". Finch pointed out that many had written off the chances of his team, referring to them as "old" after the defeat to England in the group stage. Australia bounced back brilliantly after that England defeat and won three games consecutively to book a spot in the semis. They now play Pakistan, who topped Group 2 with five straight wins, in Dubai on Thursday. Australia and Pakistan have played six teams in the past T20 World Cups and have won three games each.
