Australia face Pakistan at the World Cup, on Friday in Chennai. Here is their head-to-head record and form guide.
Aiming to build a winning run, Australia take on Pakistan in ODI 18 of the ongoing 2023 World Cup, in Chennai on Friday. Pat Cummins and Co. are currently placed in the bottom-half of the table, having won only once in their last three matches
They began with a six-wicket defeat against India in their opener, and then were thrashed by South Africa in their second match, losing by 134 runs
Against Sri Lanka, Australia had to put in a good fight, in what began as a tight match, but ended in a rather one-sided manner.
All eyes will be on Josh Inglis, who hogged the limelight during Australia's 216-run chase, slamming 58 runs off 59 balls, packed with five fours and a six. It proved to be key as AUstralia reached 215/5 in 35.2 overs, with Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis adding the finishing touches
Initially, Sri Lanka posted 209 in 43.3 overs, with half-centuries from openers Pathum Nissanka (61) and Kusal Perera (78).
But Adam Zampa proved to be the game-changer for Australia in the first innings, taking a four-wicket haul.
