Pakistan vs Australia Preview

Unpredictable Pakistan take on defending champions Australia in the 17th match of the tournament at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. Pakistan, suffered a humiliating loss against West Indies in their opener, came back strongly to defeat favorites England in the second game. Their game against Sri Lanka was washed out without a single ball being bowled. Meanwhile, Australia were given a reality check by the Indian batters in their previous game at The Oval on Sunday. To make matters worse, all rounder Marcus Stoinis- a handy bowler and an explosive lower order batsmen has been ruled out of the match against Pakistan due to an injury. The conditions are expected to be overcast and it could help the pace bowlers of both the sides. Both sides would be looking to pick up a win and consolidate their position in the points table.
