Pakistan and Australia face-off in a do-or-die clash in the Super 10 stage of the World T20 in Mohali on 25 March.

After losing their opening match against New Zealand, Steve Smith's side eked out a win against Bangladesh in Bangalore to get their first points on the board. Australia can qualify for the last four stage of the tournament even if they lose to Pakistan, but they will need a big win against hosts India in their final group match.

Australia lost to Pakistan by 16 runs in the 2014 World T20 tournament and are backed at 1/2 by Betfair to avenge that defeat.

Pakistan got their World T20 campaign off to a flying start by beating Bangladesh, but back-to-back losses against India and New Zealand mean they must beat Australia to stay alive in the tournament. Shahid Afridi's side are priced at 2/1 to rekindle their T20 World Cup hopes in Chandigarh.

With scores of 38 and 58 against New Zealand and Bangladesh, respectively, Usman Khawaja has been keeping Aaron Finch – the world's top-ranked T20 batsman – out of the Australian playing XI. The left-handed opener is placed at 3/1 to top-score for his side.

Pakistan's batting line-up came unstuck trying to chase down 181 against New Zealand, despite Sharjeel Khan's getting them off to a flying start with a 25-ball 47. The left-hander is backed at 4/1 to top the run charts for Pakistan.
