The Australian cricket team are going to be a nervous squad as they lost their last match to India and now, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has been ruled out of the match. As they play Pakistan today, Australia will really look for a win as they were badly outplayed by their opponents last game. However, the intensity of this game will all depend on the weather, as it looks like this will be the third game to be washed out in the World Cup.
Pakistan’s bowling is so powerful that the English batting line-up, which is currently the best in the world were stumped. Pakistan beat England after a prolific display of their batting, bowling and fielding skills. With regards to Australia, the bowlers will be a much more confident lot as they have seen the star Australians, David Warner and Aaron Finch struggling for runs against ace bowlers, JaspritBumrah and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar.
Australia have a chance if they manage to strike early and remove a couple of wickets. As for their batting, Steve Smith would be their pillar of strength as he has two half-centuries from three matches and the discovery of Alex Carey, who has proved to be a big hitter as well.
Well, we wish both the teams the very best and let’s just hope for good weather so we are entertained through the day!
