Match Preview

Australia team lost their last match against India by 36 runs after winning their first two matches. David Warner struggled to pace his innings and ended up wasting a lot of deliveries. Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch played some vital knocks but were not enough to challenge the huge target. Alex Carey`s hitting down the batting order was the biggest positive for them in the last match. 

Australia`s bowling unit was taken apart by the Indian batting line-up and they ended with a massive score of 352 runs. Pat Cummins was the only bowler with pretty decent figures of 10-0-55-1 in the last match. Australia might look for an attacking bowling option such as Jason Behrenndoff in the place of either Marcus Stoinis or Nathan Coulter-Nile. The five-time champs Australia will look to beat Pakistan and return to winning ways. 

Pakistan team brought their unpredictable nature to this World Cup too. After a humiliating defeat to West Indies in the first match, they came back strongly to defeat the hosts England. Pakistan`s match against Sri Lanka has washed away and both teams had to settle down for a point each. Mohammed Hafeez, Babar Azam, and Sarfaraz Ahmed scored 50+ runs in their match against England and are in good form.

Openers Fakhar Zaman and Imam-Ul-Haq provided a good start and their middle order capitalized on it. Pakistan has posted 300+ runs consistently in the English conditions. Pacers Wahab Riaz and Mohammed Amir are excellent exponents of reverse swing in the late stages of the match. Hasan Ali provides good control and economy rate in the middle overs. Shadab Khan will join with Mohammed Hafeez and Shoaib Malik to take care of spin bowling in the middle overs.

Pakistan Preview

Key Players:

Babar Azam – Babar Azam is one of the most consistent players for Pakistan in limited overs. He scored a brilliant run-a-ball 63 runs against England. Babar Azam needs to build on the starts and score big hundreds to help his team. 

Wahab Riaz – Wahab Riaz is an attacking bowler who looks to take wickets always. His 3 wickets against England played a big role in their victory. But, he leaked 82 runs in his 10 overs will be an area of concern for the team.

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Weather Conditions

Taunton pitch is known to provide good seam movement and help the medium pacers swing the ball. Last match, all the 13 wickets to fall were taken by the medium pacers. We can expect scores in the ranges of 260-280 runs on average. The match day looks cloudy with 60% chances of rain forecast as per weather reports. 

Toss: WIN the toss, BOWL First

No target is safe in the flat English conditions and teams are looking to chase down any total in most matches. Batsmen are confident of chasing with their aggressive mindset, intent, bigger bats, and faster outfields.

Winning Prediction

Australia is one of the strongest teams in the 2019 World Cup and they have a psychological edge over Pakistan with their recent success against them. Pakistan team is high on morale after beating tournament favorites England. We expect Australia to win this exciting match.
