Here are the ICC CWC 2019 Pakistan vs Australia 17th Match highlights :

David Warner and Aaron Finch’s partnership
Having lost the toss and been invited to bat first, Australia had to make sure they didn’t lose too many wickets early and Warner and Finch did exactly that although it wasn’t easy.
The conditions were really conducive to fast bowling and Pakistan had the opportunity to bowl Australia out of the game in the first hour itself. The ball was swinging and there was also sideways movement off the surface, but the Pakistani bowlers just didn’t get their lengths right.

Apart from Mohammed Amir, every other Pakistani bowler bowled too short in the first half of the Australian innings and Warner and Finch took full advantage of that as they stitched together a 146-run partnership. While Finch missed out on his hundred and was dismissed on 82, Warner went on to score his 15th ODI century.

Mohammed Amirs Five-wicket haul
Mohammed Amir had been under the pump in recent times because of his indifferent form, but yesterday he was in a fine rhythm. While he moved the new ball both ways, swinging into the right-handers and taking it away from them with his natural angle, he pitched the ball up as well which none of the Pakistani bowlers did. And even when he returned for his second and third spells, when the ball had got slightly older, he hit the right lengths and got the reward for that as he ended up with career-best bowling figures of 5 for 30.

Pat Cummins’ fiery spell
Australia although got a couple of wickets early and dented Pakistans chase, Pakistan seemed to be bouncing back with the third-wicket partnership between Mohammed Hafeez and Imam-ul-Haq.pakistan vs australia

The Australian skipper Aaron Finch turned to Pat Cummins for a breakthrough and the speedster didn’t let his skipper down. The 25-year old steamed in and hit the deck hard and took out two crucial Pakistani batsmen in that spell to put Australia back on the driver’s seat again.

Tail-wagging from Pakistan
At 6 for 160, Pakistan looked completely out of the game but the Pakistani tail-enders didn’t back down. They took the mantle upon themselves and counter-attacked the Kangaroos. Hassan Ali started the onslaught as he deposited Kane Richardson twice into the stands before handing the same treatment to the part-timer Glenn Maxwell.

Richardson, however, managed to remove Hassan in the next over, but there was no respite for Australia as Wahab Riaz walked in next and he started swinging his bat as well. Riaz connected quite a few of his big hits and his 64-run partnership with Sarfaraz Ahmed gave Australia a bit of a scare, but their death-over specialist Mitchell Starc got rid of Riaz with a rising back-of-length delivery and then cleaned up Mohammed Amir in the same over.
