Australia needs to be at its best in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, feels Michael Clarke
Team Australia has confirmed the second spot in Pool A just lagging behind the co host and neighbour nation New Zealand as the Australian mighty pace bowler Mitchell Starc took four wickets by giving away just 14 runs to help rout Scotland by seven wickets and help secure the second spot for Australia in the rainy Hobart stadium, in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup tournament of 2K15. After their win, the Australian skipper Michael Clarke had said that his side needs to be the best heading into the upcoming knockout fixture games.
Now it is the knockout stage matches that are yet to come and that they need to play at their best and he thinks that if they can do so, they are definitely going to win, said Michael Clarke.
Scotland collapsed to 130 all out in an innings which featured five noughts and where only Matt Machan, with 40, looked dangerous. Australia captain Michael Clarke then promoted himself to the top of the order ahead of their quarter-final in Adelaide on March 20 by making a run-a-ball 47.
Scotland have still to win a World Cup match — having now taken part in three editions — a run of 14 games. Australia is still awaiting their quarter-final opponents although it seems likely they will avoid South Africa who appears to set for a Sydney clash with Sri Lanka on March 18.
Six of the eight quarter finalists are known, New Zealand, Australia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, India and South Africa. That leaves 1992 champions Pakistan, 1975 and 1979 winners West Indies and non-Test side Ireland battling for the remaining two places out of Pool B.
