Australia win toss and field against Pakistan
GROS ISLET, Saint Luci: Australia captain Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to field against Pakistan in the World Twenty20 semi-final at the Beausejour Stadium here on Friday.
Australia were unchanged from the side that knocked hosts the West Indies out of the tournament with a six-wicket win here on Tuesday.
Defending champions Pakistan were also unchanged from the team that defeated South Africa by 11 runs, at Beausejour on Monday.
Rain delayed the scheduled 11am local time (1500GMT) toss by 40 minutes.
However, organisers have given themselves an additional two hours in which to complete this match, which means that not until approximately 1.30pm (1730GMT) will the fixture start being reduced from a 20 overs per side contest if the semi-final has not already started by then.
Should no result at all be possible because of bad weather, Australia will be in the final as they have won more matches at the tournament than Pakistan.
The teams have already met once in this competition, with Australia beating Pakistan by 34 runs in a first round group clash here on May 2.
Whoever wins this match will face England in Sunday''s final at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, after Paul Collingwood''s side convincingly defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the first semi-final at Beausejour here on Thursday.
