Pakistan took on Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Taunton. After Australia was put into bat by Sarfraz Ahmad, they managed to score 307 runs despite a 5-wicket haul from Mohammad Amir.
In reply, Pakistan was off to steady start after an early loss of Fakhar Zaman. The Green Team looked favorites to pull off a solid victory in the middle part of the innings before their mercurial nature came into play.
Pakistan lost 3 wickets for 11 runs and then the havoc started. Hassan Ali and Wahab Riaz gave Pakistan some hope with their cameos but Mitchell Starc left Pakistan 41 runs short at the end.
Pakistan's inconsistency in the batting line-up has now become a permanent headache for them. It has been a story of decades for Pakistan now. Their batting line starts to crumble whenever the pressure mounts. Pakistan needs to deal with this dilemma if they want to do well in this year's world cup.
