Pakistan vs Australia: Twitter Rejoices as Australia Post 41-run Win Over Pakistan

Australia are excellent at bowling their main bowlers soon enough to win games before it comes down to their pending weak overs. Happened v WI, happens again v Pak.

Good fight Pakistan ... good win Australia.. but I feel both Teams can and need to improve ... if they want to win this thing. Still along way to go. India and England still the stand out favourites.

Australia now has 300+ totals batting first on 19 occasions in #CWC. They won all!

A few days ago made their only 300+ total batting second in #CWC.

But lost!#CWC19 #CWC2019 #PAKvAUS #AUSVPAK

Initially, Mohammad Amir started well for Pakistan but the Australian openers Aaron Finch and David Warner weathered the storm and upped the scoring-rate slowly.
Pak getting right royal hammering from Finch and Warner. Must be wishing rain hadnt relented. 375-plus score in the offing #CWC2019

On a pitch that has sweated under covers due to

Balls going thru the top from the quicks

And then a spinner comes on ♂️✈️

Just about every time Shaheen Afridi has pitched the ball up, he’s had Finch or Warner in trouble. Still, insists on banging it in short. Poor from Pakistan, with ball, and in the field. Looks even worse after dropping their best bowler in Shadab. #CWC19 #AUSvPAK

Warner continued on and went on to score his 15th ODI century. The defending champions lost wickets in regular intervals and ended up getting to only 308 before getting dismissed.
Best way to answer critics? Just score well done Davey Warner...now a big one #CWC19 #AUSvPAK

Yew! Congrats @davidwarner31 that’ll put a few back in their place now please don’t let this jinx him #CWC19 #AUSvPAK #CmonAussie

So much emotion in one leap. #CWC19 #AUSvPAK

Today we have seen the best of @davidwarner31 .. Ominous signs for the rest of the tournament me thinks .. #CWC19

After a solid start, think aus went hard a bit to early. Not a wicket you can T off from word go. Amir proved if you hit a fuller length there’s enough in it. Won’t be easy for Pakistan to chase down 300 plus. #PAKvAUS #sscricket

Mohd Aamir has turned things around for Pak with some marvellous bowling. Other bowlers not quite in the same league, compounded by poor fielding

— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) June 12, 2019
@iamamirofficial Brilliant line & length bowling by amir #AUSvPAK Pak fav 4 today game

— Mohammad Yousaf (@yousaf1788) June 12, 2019
This flurry of wickets at the end has given Pakistan a glimmer. It is still a daunting total but Amir has brought them back. #AUSvPAK

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 12, 2019
Pakistan did not get off to the best of starts. Fakhar Zaman was dismissed early. Soon after, Australia managed to get the big wicket of Babar Azam. But Imam-ul-Haq and Mohammed Hafeez stitched together a steady stand.
This is a decent start by Pakistan. Maybe one wicket more than ideal for them but at the moment, they are pacing the chase well.

— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) June 12, 2019
This Pakistan chase has got heartbreaking, match-changing run out written all over it. #CWC19

— Charlie Reynolds (@cwjreynolds) June 12, 2019
But the loss of Iman triggered a collapse of the batting order. Hasan Ali and Wahab Riaz provided some entertainment at the end but Pakistan eventually fell short by 41 runs.
The other Pakistan are back .... #CWC19

— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 12, 2019
Shoaib Maliks ODI average in last one year is 29.42 and his overall average in England is 14.12. If Pakistan think they need an extra batsman in the team it has to be Haris Sohail, whose average in last one year is 49.00, including two 100s against Australia. #AusvPak

— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) June 12, 2019
Pakistans decision to not play a a frontline spinner has affected their batting as well as their bowling. Imad and Shadab can both bat, but with neither in the side, their tail looks long even with Hasan Ali playing innings like he did today. #CWC19

Another stonkingly good game. These two sides are so weird, and flawed, but have so much talent within them - only natural they produced such a strange match, not so much ebbing and flowing as lurching and crashing. Really tough for Pakistan to qualify now. #CWC19
