St. Lucia (West Indies), May 3 (ANI): Captain Michael Clarke has said that his side put in an all-round brilliant performance to secure a 34-run win over Pakistan in their World Twenty20 clash on Sunday.

“It’s a very good start from the boys. Our batting set the game up, getting 191. Our bowlers did a great job as well up front in the first six overs and we caught really well in the field so the boys played really well,” the Herald Sun quoted Clarke, as saying on Sunday.

After man-of-the-match Shane Watson hit a career-best 81, Australia’s three frontline quicks Shaun Tait, Dirk Nannes and Mitchell Johnson grabbed eight wickets to demolish Pakistan.

New-ball pair Tait (3-20) and Nannes (3-41) were fearsome early while Johnson (2-21) struck in the fifth over of the innings to ram home Australia’s advantage at 3-34. (ANI)
