Australia vs Pakistan by Aditya9920
Pakistan are out almost of the World cup, but not mathematically. They will still have a outside chance, but will have to win against Australia with a good run rate and hope other results to come their way. There main problem seems to be rotating the strike and it was clearly visible in the match against New Zealand. After Sharjeel's innings, they were favourites to win the match, but they failed to rotate the strike on regular basis thereby increasing the RRR and finally losing the match by 25 runs.
On the other hand, Australia finally looks like a settled unit with a win over Bangladesh. They have a good run rate and I think it doesn't natter whether they loose or win against Pak, as the match against India is a virtual quarter final to them. They will once again bank on their pace heavy bowling department and their top 5 batsmen. Khawaja, Watson and Maxwell looked good, and Smith, Warner are yet to go big.
Looking at the power hitters, I feel Australia out number Pakistan easily. Apart from Afridi , I don't see any batsmen hitting more than 2 sixes. Even Afridi won't have a chance to hit many sixes as Australia are a pace heavy attack barring Zampa. So looking at the power hitters like Watson, Warner, Maxy, Mitchell Marsh, Faulkner, I expect Australia to hit more sixes than Pakistan. Also, Pakistan are very low on confidence and Australia will be looking to win handsomely before their quarter final clash against India.
All the Best.
