Australia VS Pakistan 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH NO. 17: PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for australia vs pakistan world cup 2019 predictions

Defending champions Australia are looking to get back to winning ways after suffering their first defeat of this year’s tournament against India. Pakistan were frustrated by the rain, which forced their match against Sri Lanka to be abandoned, but they beat England in their previous game.

Australia have stuck with the same 11 players for all three matches so far, meaning Shaun Marsh, Kane Richardson, Nathan Lyon and Jason Behrendorff are having to remain patient. Their current XI is definitely their strongest on paper, however, so it may be another unchanged team to face Pakistan.

Pakistan’s ODI form looked to have deserted them as they came into this tournament on the back of their thrashings against Australia and England. That was even more the case when they folded for just 105 on their way to an opening seven-wicket defeat against West Indies in this tournament.

They bounced back against England, however, after powering to 348/8 thanks to half-centuries from Babar Azam (63 from 66 balls), Mohammad Hafeez (84 from 62) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (55 from 44). In reply, England were rarely too far behind the asking rate but Pakistan came back well late on to restrict them to 334/9.

Australia were in dominant form when these two teams last met, as Aaron Finch’s excellent batting led them to a 5-0 series win in the UAE as both teams geared up for this tournament.
