World Cup 2019: Australia Vs Pakistan


MATCH DETAILS

Pakistan vs Australia – Match 17, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
12 June 2019, 3:00 PM IST

VENUE : The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton

DETAILS

Taunton, home to the Somerset County Cricket club since 1882, is not a regular venue when it comes to international cricket; it has hosted just four ODIs till date. With overcast conditions in the offing, the fast bowlers look forward to hitting the deck with some early swing. The pitch turned a bit in the second innings during the Afghanistan-New Zealand game. The team winning the toss is expected to field first.

PREVIEW

Australia taking on Pakistan, who both have had a similar kind of tournament thus far. Australia are a little better placed on the points table as compared to Pakistan with one more win in as many matches played. The two teams are set to clash on 12th June at Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton.

Australia’s winning start to the 2019 Cricket World Cup came to a crashing halt on Sunday as they were outclassed by a strong India team at The Oval, and they will now look to regroup and get back to winning ways against Pakistan.

Pakistan’s last match against Sri Lanka was scheduled to be played on Friday in Bristol but that was washed out without a ball being bowled so it will be nine days between this game and their last completed match in which they beat tournament favourites England in a thriller at Trent Bridge.
