Australia have been in good form recently with an excellent performance against India in their last clash of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. However, they failed to get across the finishing line after being handed a target of 353 runs. Pakistan, on the other hand, bounced back following a seven-wicket loss against West Indies recording a 14-run win against hosts England. They will be looking to ensure more of the same against Australia after their last match against Sri Lanka was washed out.

Wahab Riaz delivered a memorable performance against Australia when the two sides faced off in the 2015 World Cup and will be looking to deliver a similar performance.

While Australia will look to get back to winning ways following a defeat against India, they need to be wary of the Pakistan pace-bowling attack led by Mohammad Amir who has been in good form lately.

Lineups:

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson.

Pakistan: Imam ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c/wk), Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Wahab Riaz, Hassan Ali, Mohammad Amir, Shaheen Afridi.
