Both Australia and Pakistan are desperately looking for a victory to gain the much required momentum for their World Cup campaign. Australia in their last watch were beaten comprehensively by India whereas Pakistan's last encounter against Sri Lanka was washed out due to heavy rain.
Pakistan, winning the toss opted to bowl first but captain Aaron Finch and David Warner started off steadily with Finch, in particular, was severe on the Pakistan bowlers smashing them all around the park. Soon both openers put up century stand in grand style. Finch was finally dismissed by Mohd. Aamir after playing a handsome knock of 82. He smashed 6 fours and 4 sixes during his knock. Kangaroos were 185 for the loss of 1 wicket after 27.5 overs when reports last came in.
Australia are placed 4th on the Points Table after amassing 4 points from their 3 matches with 2 wins while Pakistan are lying at the 8th spot with 3 points from 3 matches. If Pakistan manages to eke out a win today, this will be a huge morale booster for the Asian team as they next take on arch rivals India in a tough encounter.
