Pakistan had stormed into the last four as the only team with a perfect record in the group stage.
However, Matthew Wade smacked three sixes in a row to clinch a see-saw chase as Australia beat Pakistan by five wickets in a dramatic semi-final on Thursday to reach the T20 World Cup final.
Chasing 177 for victory, Australia needed 22 runs from the last two overs and Wade got a reprieve when Hasan Ali dropped him off Shaheen Afridi in the penultimate one.
Wade sent the next three balls from Afridi soaring over the ropes and Australia reached their target with one over to spare.
