Pakistan vs Australia: Australia beat Pakistan by 41 runs

Pakistan vs Australia Pak vs Aus: Disciplined show by the bowlers after David Warner’s sensational century guided Australia to a thrilling 41 run victory over Pakistan in the World Cup match at Taunton. Chasing 308, Pakistan were bowled out for 266 as Australia recorded their third victory of the tournament. For Australia, Pat Cummins finished with 3/33 while Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson took two wickets each.

Earlier, Mohammad Amir’s career-best 5/30 helped Pakistan bowl out Australia for 307. Riding on a superb century by David Warner, Australia were at one point of time looking to cross the 350-run mark, but late strikes by Amir restricted the defending champions from going big. Warner scored 117 while Aaron Finch made 82.

Pakistan’s decision to field first didn’t go as planned initially as both Australian openers demolished the opponent’s pace attack and added 146 runs for the first wicket. Amir gave his side the first breakthrough dismissing the Australian captain. Finch, who scored 82 off 84 balls with the help of six boundaries and four sixes, tried smashing Amir but got caught by Mohammad Hafeez at covers in the 23rd over. Steve Smith (10) then fell cheaply. Glenn Maxwell impressed with a fiery cameo hitting 20 off 10 balls taking the score past 200 before being scalped by Shaheen Afridi. Warner who smashed a brilliant century was also removed by Afridi. Shaun Marsh and Alex Carey chipped with 23 and 20 respectively. But Amir ripped through the middle order and tailenders and restricted Australia from posting a huge total.

Pakistan got off to a dismal start as Cummins dealt Pakistan the first blow dismissing opener Fakhar Zaman for a duck in the third over. Babar Azam and Imam ul Haq then tried to lift the side but Nathan Coulter Nile ended Azam’s (30) challenge. Mohammad Hafeez along with Haq then took the score past 100-mark keeping Pakistan afloat. But Cummins struck again to get rid of Haq after his fighting knock of 53. Skipper Aaron Finch then joined the party and dealt fourth blow to Pakistan sending back Hafeez (46). Very soon, Cummins claimed his third victim in the form of Shoaib Malik who gave an easy catch behind the stumps without even opening his account. Asif Ali also could not rescue the side and got dismissed by Kane Richardson after scoring just 5. Athe score fo 200, Richardson struck again to get rid of Hasan Ali after scoring 32. Skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed and Wahab Riaz fought back for Pakistan, but Mitchell Starc struck at the right time to get rid of tee latter after 64-run stand.

22:16 (IST)12 Jun 2019
How will Australia finish their 5th bowler's quota?

They still have one over left. Will Finch gamble with himself or Maxwell right in the very last over? Or will he give one right now and leave it to his main bowlers in the remaining six? Interesting time of the game coming up

22:10 (IST)12 Jun 2019
The equation for Pakistan-

48 balls left.

54 runs needed.

3 wickets in hand.

Can Pakistan do it?

22:08 (IST)12 Jun 2019

SIX! Wahab Riaz is doing it here for Pakistan. He picks up the slower one early and slogs it handsomely over mid-wicket for a biggie. 250 up for Pakistan! PAK- 254/7 | Pakistan need 54 runs in 48 balls

22:03 (IST)12 Jun 2019

Much-needed boundary

21:41 (IST)12 Jun 2019
Party over for Hassan Ali!

OUT! Hassan Ali's cameo is over as Richardson picks up his second wicket! Australia can relax now. PAK- 200/7. Richardson bangs in a short ball again, it's around off and Hassan this time tries to play the cross-batted shot. But it takes the bottom half of his bat and flies down to Khawaja at fine leg.

21:24 (IST)12 Jun 2019
Pakistan are crumbling-

Asif Ali edges one back to the keeper as Pakistan slide from 136/2 to 160/6.  The wickets are coming in a procession for Australia. It is on a length outside off and Asif looks to run it down towards third man. But the delivery is a cross-seam one and that perhaps generates extra bounce. Ali is clearly surprised and ends up fending it behind. Carey completes the formalities. 136/2 at one stage, 160/6 now.

21:06 (IST)12 Jun 2019
Caught Behind!

Great catch by Alex Carey to get rid of Shoaib Malik for a duck! Cummins picks up his 3rd wicket of the innings. Carey dives to his left and takes a great catch behind the stumps.

20:46 (IST)12 Jun 2019
Pakistan move forward comfortably
20:38 (IST)12 Jun 2019
Imam in ominous touch

Smashing shot! Starc delivers a short ball around off, Imam stands tall inside the crease and slaps it past the right side of the point fielder for a boundary. Imam moves onto 44. PAK- 121/2

20:33 (IST)12 Jun 2019

FOUR for Imam! The sweeper could have done better there. Short in length outside off, Imam crunches it off his back foot through cover-point and the ball races away. Cummins in the deep is slow off the blocks, tries his best to keep it out with a dive but fails. PAK -107/2

20:26 (IST)12 Jun 2019
