#Australia vs Pakistan Team News

Australia :

five-time world champs Australia has played three matches as of now and has won two out of three games.First match they won by 7 wickets with Afghanistan, Second match they won by 15 runs against west Indies and 3rd match they lost by 36 runs against india.

Australia, on the other hand, is trying to overcome the defeat from India in the last game. Australia might think over bringing in Shaun Marsh for Usman Khawaja for this encounter. Steve Smith is looking in good form which makes him a great asset for the team. Marsh looks the best bet at number four.

David Warner has scored two fifties in this World Cup; both being his slowest fifties in ODI cricket. He needed 74 balls for his fifty against Afghanistan and 77 deliveries for his 50th run against India. Steve Smith has scored fifty-plus seven times in his last eight innings at the World Cup. Smith has scored 553 runs in those eight innings at an average of 79 with help of a century and six half-centuries.

Australia won five of their nine World Cup matches against Pakistan. They lost four matches to the Pakistan team; the joint-most number of defeats for them in the World Cup against any side. They lost five in ten against the Windies and four out of 12 against India.

Pakistan :

Pakistan has played two games and tasted both a win and a defeat while their third match against Sri Lanka got washed out and the teams shared one point each. They lost first match by 7 wickets against west Indies and had a great come back win against England by 14 runs.

Fakhar has recently struggled on the South African pitches but he can be backed to perform in the English conditions. Zaman is capable of providing explosive starts and has the ability to play long.Another talented batsman coming through the ranks in Pakistan cricket is Imam-ul-Haq.The 23-year old left-hander is a part of the world-record 304 runs opening partnership. A lot will be expected from the opening pair of Fakhar and Imam.

Mohammad Amir will hope to enjoy another landmark occasion in Taunton when Pakistan face Australia there in their World Cup match on Wednesday.Amir was the rising star of world cricket when his career came to a stunning halt during a Lord’s Test in 2010 after both he and new-ball partner Mohamed Asif were caught bowling no-balls on the orders of then Pakistan captain Salman Butt as part of a newspaper sting operation.

Pakistan has won only one of their last 15 ODI matches against Australia.
