Australia captain George Bailey won the toss Sunday and elected to bowl first against Pakistan in their World Twenty20 group 2 match.

Former champion Pakistan made one change to its side with left-arm spinner Zulfiqar Babar coming in for pace bowler Junaid Khan on a pitch expected to aid turn.

Australia fielded left-arm spinner Brad Hogg, who becomes the oldest player to figure in a Twenty20 international at 43 years and 38 days.

This is the first match for Australia in the fifth edition of the tournament while Pakistan lost its opening game to India by seven wickets.

Australia has won the ICC World Cup four times but has never won the World Twenty20 competition.

Leaders should learn to take no for an answer, Jaitley says after Jaswant denied ticket.
