Pakistan end Australia's run

Colombo, Sri Lanka – Pakistan recorded an historic win over Australia on Saturday to bring the defending champs’ 34-match unbeaten run in the ICC Cricket World Cup to a halt.

The amazing unbeaten record dating back to 1999 was finally broken as the Pakistanis earned a hard-fought four-wicket win on an unpredictable surface at the refurbished R Premadasa Stadium in Khetterama.

Australia, who have won the last three World Cups during the run and were unbeaten in five matches in Group A in this tournament, were bowled out for 176.
