Australia vs Pakistan match preview

Defending champions Australia have started very well except the defeat against India in the last match. The Aussies marked their first victory against Afghanistan by 7 wickets and beat powerful West Indies by 15 runs in their second match. The Aussies, however, tested their first defeat against India in their third match.

On the other hand, Pakistan are currently facing a very messy situation. Batting was considered their strength this time, but the batsmen failed to prove their efficiency against West Indies. However, the batsmen challenged the English team two days later. Meanwhile, the team’s bowlers could not showcase their familiar destructive form. However, Pakistan are always an unpredictable team. Their victory against England proves that they can do anything.
