Pakistan vs Australia: Twitter Rejoices as Australia Post 41-run Win Over Pakistan

Australia returned to winning ways after registering a 41-run victory over Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2019 at Taunton on Wednesday.

 

 

Initially, Mohammad Amir started well for Pakistan but the Australian openers Aaron Finch and David Warner weathered the storm and upped the scoring-rate slowly.

 

Warner continued on and went on to score his 15th ODI century. The defending champions lost wickets in regular intervals and ended up getting to only 308 before getting dismissed.

 

Pakistan did not get off to the best of starts. Fakhar Zaman was dismissed early. Soon after, Australia managed to get the big wicket of Babar Azam. But Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammed Hafeez stitched together a steady stand.

 

But the loss of Iman triggered a collapse of the batting order. Hasan Ali and Wahab Riaz provided some entertainment at the end but Pakistan eventually fell short by 41 runs.
