Pakistan were unfortunate that they could not have the game against Srilanka as rain ruined the game. After the England win, they must be high in confidence so Australia should be wary of the fact. Australia are coming off a defeat from their previous match which was played against the men in blue. Let’s Discuss AUS vs PAK Dream11 and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Pitch Report: After 40 years this ground has conducted the match and that match didn’t go as expected as Kiwis bowled out Afghanis for mere 180 runs. Like all pitchers, this also has assistance for the faster bowlers. Expect a score around 260-265 in the first innings.

AUS vs PAK Fantasy Cricket Tips
Australia:The lost against India was the first time Australia have lost a run chase in WCs since losing to Pakistan at Leeds in 1999. The streak of 19 consecutive wins batting second since then comes to an end. Bowlers did not have a good day with the ball as India score 350+ runs on the board. The likes of Starc, Cummins looked a bit pale in the death overs, the discipline that they showed with the new ball was not continued by them. Chasing a big score like this was always going to be difficult, but the openers played out an opening spell from Bhumrah and Bhuvi quite comfortably but after a solid start a cardinal sin happened as Finch was run out when he was looking to up the ante. Warner was looking out of touch, Although scored a good 50, but he did not look like himself. Smith continued where he left in the previous match, but the run rate was creeping up, in the end, they lost by 36 runs. Usman Khawaja might be rested and Shaun Marsh should come at his place.
Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja/Shaun Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa
Pakistan:They do have a great recent record against Australia, Australia have beaten them in their own den. But the win against England would be pleasing as they have beaten the tournament favorites. Imam and Fakhar both have played well in patches, the would like to convert their starts into a big score. Babar Azam has looked the best among the lot, the whole Pakistan batting revolves around him. Hafeez was the star against England. The problem arises here, Shoaib Malik is not in best of form and so does Sarfaraz, which makes them vulnerable in closing down the matches. Bowling has looked good so far, Amir getting wickets with the new ball, Wahab lethal with the old ball and Shadab leading the spin attack. These guys need to step up to cut down strong Australian Batting lineup.
Probable XI: Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Asif Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali
