Sports News, Live Pakistan vs Australia ICC Quarter-final 2015 – Australia take on Pakistan in the third quarterfinal of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 at the Adelaide Oval. The teams have a 4-4 head-to-head record but recent form suggests the tournament co-hosts will have the upper hand on Friday.
Australia: Finch, Warner, Smith, Clarke, Maxwell, Watson, Faulkner, Haddin, Johnson, Starc and Hazlewood.
Pakistan: Shehzad, Sarfraz, Haris Sohail, Misbah, Akmal, Maqsood, Afridi, Wahab, Sohail Khan, Rahat and Adil.
Clarke says the entire team was available for selection for the quarters. “That’s always a great situation to be in,” he said. Misbah feels momentum is with his team. “We have won four matches on the trot and the boys are very confident of making the most of those,” he says just before the toss.
TOSS! Misbah calls it right and Pakistan will bat first against Australia. The visitors in Adelaide remain unchanged while Australia bring in Josh Hazlewood in place of Pat Cummins.
History favours Australia, but Pakistan’s astonishing ability to conjure magical wins promises enthralling cricket during their World Cup quarter-final at the Adelaide Oval on Friday.
Misbah-ul-Haq’s men are determined to replicate the success of their predecessors under Imran Khan who won the tournament Down Under in 1992 — and their paths bear an uncanny similarity.
