Pakistan lost against Australia on Thursday by a margin of 41 runs. The team looked like winning at some moments but could not handle the pressure as they were bundled out in the run chase.

Having won the toss, Sarfaraz put Australia into bat first. He regretted his decision as Aussie openers Aaron Finch and David Warner put on batting masterclass. However, after a 146 run stand, Finch was the first to depart for 84. On the other hand, David Warner completed his first hundred in this world cup.

But the middle order failed miserably as there are hardly any contributions from other players. Pakistan came back into the game slowly, as they took wickets at important stages. Mohammad Amir was the stand out performer with the ball. He managed 5 wickets in his spell and ensured Australia were bowled out for 307.

Initially set to cross 350, Australia were all out for a mere 307.

Pakistan did not have the best of starts. They lost opener Fakhar Zaman for a duck in the third over. However, Babar Azam and Imam Ul Haq put up a 50 run partnership.

Once Babar was dismissed, Mohammed Hafeez lead the team from the front. Meanwhile, Imam scored a half century in the process. However, he lost his wicket at an important stage. As soon as Hafeez was caught out, Pakistan lost all recognized batsmen apart from Sarfaraz Ahmed.

The Pakistan skipper played an anchor role with the tail enders. Much to the surprise, Hasan Ali played some big shots to bring Pakistan into the game. But Wahab Riaz is the man for Pakistan with the bat.

Unusually Riaz played a match defining innings. He scored 45 runs from just 39 balls. But Mitchell Starc took 2 wickets in the 45th over to swing the match. On the other hand, Sarfaraz Ahmed was run out at the end to hand Australia an easy win.
