“Matthew Wade did a Michael Hussey” – that’s what most Aussie cricket fans were chanting after Wade’s heroics against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup 2021, similar to Hussey’s match-winning effort in the 2010 WC against the same team.
The win, which looked improbable at one stage, takes Australia into the final. Their opponents? Neighbors and long-time rivals New Zealand.
We’re down to the final 2 teams and it promises to be a cracker of a contest on Sunday!
