FAULKNER THE FINISHER

Player of the match James Peter Faulkner is an all-rounder and has earned the nickname of "The Finisher" due to his ability to close out the innings or to seal victories as a batsman as well as bowling late in the innings. Faulkner did not bat yesterday, however he yet again proved his bowling prowess. Australia posted 194 prompting Pakistan to work hard. Faulkner though had other ideas as he deftly bowled out Sharjeel Khan in the sixth over. He then came back towards the end to scalp four more wickets to put an end to Pakistan's hopes. He removed the dangerous Khaled Latif and Imad Wasim in the 18th and got the better of Wahab Riaz and Sarfraz Ahmed in the 20th to end up with figures of 5 for 28.
