Pakistan are playing down their loss to Australia ahead of their Champions Trophy cricket semi final against New Zealand on Sunday.

In their final group match in South Africa, Pakistan lost to Australia on the last ball of the match.

Batting first Pakistan made 206 and with 20 overs to go Australia were cruising at 138 for two, but crashed to 187 for eight before sneaking home by two wickets on the last ball.

Pakistan captain Younus Khan says he's not concerned though and believes the loss maybe good for them and toughen them up ahead of the New Zealand game.
