first_img Next Australia vs Pakistan, World Cup 2019 Match 17: Prediction and Probable Playing 11sAustralia (AUS) vs Pakistan (PAK) Prediction and Probable Playing 11s, World Cup 2019: After losing to India in their previous game, Australia will look to regain their winning momentum when they take on Pakistan at the County Ground, Taunton, June 12.advertisement India Today Web Desk TauntonJune 12, 2019UPDATED: June 12, 2019 13:20 IST Australia will play against Pakistan on June 12 for match 17 at the World Cup 2019. (AP Photo)When they take on Pakistan on Wednesday, Australia will look to better their position on the points table after their defeat to India in the last game.Pakistan, on the other hand will take confidence from their clinical win against hot favourites England to register their second win of the tournament after a washed out game vs Sri Lanka on Friday.Recent formPakistan looked like a team stuck in a different era in their seven-wicket loss to the West Indies but they bounced back in the most unlikely fashion with a clinical 14-run win over hosts and tournament favourites England.Pakistan couldn’t get a chance to keep that momentum going due to their next match against Sri Lanka getting washed out and so Australia will be wary of the danger their next opponents pose.Australia fell to their first defeat of the tournament in their previous match against India on Sunday. While the defending champions have looked stronger than they ever have in the last year and a half, Australia were, nevertheless, outplayed by the Indian batsmen and never looked on course to chasing down the target of 353.Pakistan, however, will need to show the same intensity they did against England to pull off a win on Wednesday. Australia’s batting unit is purring with Steve Smith scoring consecutive half centuries in their last two matches. The rest of the top order consisting of David Warner, Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja have all looked in good touch while Alex Carey has upped his game lower down the order.advertisementAustralia’s batting prowess was most visible when they fought back from 79/5 to post a total of 288 thanks to Smith’s 73 and Nathan Coulter-Nile’s rearguard assault which saw him scoring 92 runs.The last time Pakistan faced Australia in the Men’s @cricketworldcup, Wahab Riaz bowled one of the most memorable spells in the tournament’s history. pic.twitter.com/tjIaT6cq8x ICC (@ICC) June 12, 2019Pitch, weather prediction – TautonThe last World Cup 2019 matches have ended in a no-result due to rain. Pakistan have already been once affected by rain in this tournament with their match involving Sri Lanka getting washed out without a ball being bowled.The weather is expected to be cloudy throughout the day with chances of shower in the afternoon, so a third consecutive washout should not come as a surprise.The track in Taunton is a usually a high-scoring venue. With overcast conditions there will be enough moisture on the pitch to give fast bowlers an edge in this match.Playing XI prediction: Australia vs Pakistan Australia (probable): David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Jason BehrendorffPakistan (probable): Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir(With inputs from IANS)Also Read | World Cup 2019: Defending champions Australia ready for unpredictable PakistanAlso Read | India look to equal World Cup record vs New Zealand in Shikhar Dhawan’s absenceAlso seeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
