CWC 19: Australia v Pakistan


God like member
6 Dec 2017
Taunton today....weather permitting of course! Would prefer both to lose, failing that, a narrow Pakistan win
Let's hope the weather allows a decent amount of play. It should be a good game.
Looking like a much better forecast today.

Here’s hoping for a classic David Warner 52 off 83 deliveries that Sarfaraz and co chase down with ease!
Pakistan elected to bowl first

Australia 60-0 after 11 overs
Yes, the Aussies are at 140 without losing a wicket at just under seven an over. Pakistan living up to their reputation of being ridiculously inconsistent - they look like a different team from the one that played England.
Warner 104 NO.
Pakistan just dropped him.
Pakistan awful in the field.
Pakistan have pulled it back a bit. Looking more like 350 than 400 now.
I think this says a bit more about Australia’s fragility rather than super stuff from Pakistan. Easy dismissals and a struggle to accelerate (and stay in) after losing the opening two.

The Windies exposed them too. India and England could look to do a real number on them.
Great bowling from Amir, but 140-0 and 'only' getting 300 all out with an over to spare will disappoint the sandpaper fiddlers.

Might be a good chase if Pakistan get off to a good start.
There’s an ajar door here for Pakistan. Keep Imam and Hafeez there for as long as possible and they could cause something here. I fear they could crumble should they lose one or two but 198 needed in 30 overs is definitely possible.
128-2 after 24 overs

Slowly chipping away rrr .02 down too
What do the say? ‘Add two wickets to your score and then review whether it’s a good score or not!’

Two quick wickets for the Aussies and Pakistan have to start all over again.
