Mohammad Aamer bowled a 5 wickets in last over against Australia.

T20 world Cup 2010: Australia whipped Pakistan en route to an imposing 191 before bowling the defending champions out for 157 at the Beuasejour Stadium here on 02/05/2010.
Chasing the impossible target was a tough ask and Pakistan started miserable by losing the inform Kamran Akmal off the first delivery of the run chase.
Akmal's partner Salman Butt blazed a few boundaries before he was undone by a short ball from Shaun Tait. Misbah-ul-Haq (41runs) and Shahid Afridi (33runs) combined for a good partnership but it was too much for Pakistan as they lost by 34 runs.
There was some good bowling, with three wickets each for pacemen Shaun Tait and Dirk Nannes, and outstanding catching from Australian.
Earlier, Captain Michael Clarke won the toss and elected to bat first on a placid surface and openers David Warner (26runs) and Shane Watson (81runs) delivered robustly, scoring 50 in the first 6 overs.
Pakistan picked Warner and then Clarke in quick succession but David Hussey ( 53 runs with a 29 ball ) put paid to any hopes of a comeback which included 4 sixes off Mohammad Sami in one over. Hussey would thank Salman Butt for his party as he was dropped by the latter on 19.
In the end, even as Aamer bowled an extraordinary last over, there was little joy for Pakistan as they faced a daunting task Mohammad Aamer bowled a five wickets ( 3 by Aamir and 2 run out ) in last over.
