The Pakistan cricket team has continued its bumpy journey in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as it has now lost a close game at the hands of Australia after defeating the title favorites, England, just a week ago.
The green shirts produced mediocre performances with the ball and bat as they did not make use of the seaming conditions in Taunton except Mohammad Amir who pulled things back together and registered his first fifer in ODI cricket.
During the run chase, Pakistan was sitting quite comfortably before throwing it all away, thanks to a middle order disaster. However, they eventually fell shorts even after impressive cameos from Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali who took them quite close to the target.
Former cricketers and fans were equally disappointed on the defeat of the Pakistan team as they were disheartened by the average display in all three departments in a game which was crucial for their journey ahead.
