Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan responded after Australia defeated Pakistan by five wickets in a tense semi-final on Friday in Dubai. Imran Khan believes the current Pakistan team should be happy with their performance in the T20 World Cup. Pakistan was the only team to reach the semi-finals with an unblemished record. Imran Khan captained Pakistan's first World Cup-winning squad in 1992

After the semi-final match, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted that " To Babar Azam & the team: I know exactly how all of you are feeling right now bec I have faced similar disappointments on the cricket field. But you shd all be proud of the quality of cricket you played & the humility you showed in your wins. Congratulations Team Australia"

Australia lost skipper Aaron Finch to a golden duck while chasing 177 for a spot in the final. However, David Warner (49) held the chase with all-rounder Mitchell Marsh and launched a counter-attack. In the 19th over, Matthew Wade hammered a 17-ball unbeaten 41 off Shaheen Shah Afridi, including a hat-trick of sixes, and Marcus Stoinis was not out on 40 off 31 deliveries as Australia reached the goal with an over to spare.
