The Aussie defeated the rival team by 10 wickets after the latter only managed to put 25 on the board.

The Australians reached 0-26 about 11 minutes before lunch while chasing only 26.

Just when the Aussies were about to celebrate their victory, Usman Khwaja was hit on the head, forcing the medical team to check on him.
