Australia eventually failed by Pakistan in World Cup history

World Cup 2011
COLOMBO: Asad Shafiq's 46 runs and Man of the match Umar Akmal's unbeaten 44runs helped Pakistan end Australia's 34th match unbeaten World Cup streak, with a victory in Colombo that takes them top of Group A.
Pakistan stopped Australia’s unbeaten 34 match run in the World Cup history on 19 March 2011.
Chasing an easy target of 177 runs, Pakistan completed victory with 9 overs to spare but they lost six wickets in the process.
Umar Gul took three for 30 to help Pakistan dismiss Australia for 176 -- their lowest World Cup total since 1992 -- before Umar Akmal hit an unbeaten 44 to steer Pakistan to victory in 41 overs, finishing top of the pool with 10 points.
This was Australia's first defeat in the World Cup since losing to Pakistan by 10 runs in Leeds in 1999 Worldcup, that time Wasim Akram was Skipper.
Abdul Razzaq hit two boundaries off spinner Jason Krejza to complete the victory.
Asad Shafiq, who hit five boundaries during his 81-ball knock, added 53 with Younis and 41 with Umar to keep Pakistan on track.
From Australian side Haddin make 42 runs, Michael Clarke 34 runs and Steve Smith 25 runs offered some resistance as Pakistan applied relentless pressure to take the last seven Australian wickets for a mere 59 runs after they were 117-3.
Brett Lee (4-28), fought hard and twice raised hopes of an unlikely win.
