ICC World Cup 2019: Twitter Reacts as Pakistan Pulls Back Australia in Death Overs

Australia scored 307 after Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and decided to bowl first against Australia in the overcast conditions of Taunton. However, Pakistan didn’t get off to a start that they would have hoped for as Aaron Finch and David Warner were able to hit the ground for the team. The Australian skipper was the aggressive partner as the right-hander launched his attack on the opposition.

However, David Warner took a backseat to Finch’s assault. On the other hand, Pakistan bowlers were not able to hit the right areas and the Australian openers made sure that they punished them whenever they veered off the track. Furthermore, the Pakistan fielders didn’t support their bowlers as they dropped catches.

Warner played a fine knock.

Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed bungled Aaron Finch catch when he was on 44 runs whereas Asif Ali also dropped a sitter when David Warner was on 104 runs. Meanwhile, Finch attacked Mohammad Hafeez and took the off-spinner to the cleaner.

However, the Australian skipper top-edged one against Mohammed Amir after he scored a fine knock of 82 runs with the help of six fours and four sixes. Meanwhile, there was a lot of pressure on David Warner. The southpaw had played an uncharacteristic knock against India and had to prove his mettle against Pakistan.


Pakistan was able to pull back Australia in the death overs.

The left-hander kept up with the scoring rate and didn’t let the pressure to build up. The left-hander scored his first ODI hundred after a gap of two years and his first after making the return to International cricket.

However, the disappoint part of the Australian innings was their middle order. All the batsmen were able to get off to a good start but could not convert it into a substantial score. Thus, Pakistan bowlers were able to make a solid comeback as Mohammad Amir scalped five wickets and Shaheen Afridi took two wickets.
