Pakistan won the toss and took a good decision to bowl first at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore. With the tight line and movement in the air, Shaheen forced Warner to play ball in the air but Usama Mir dropped the simplest of the catches. Haris Rauf went for 24 runs in his first over and 47 in 3 and that’s where the problem started to build for Pakistan.
Marsh and Warner played at a similar pace of over 100 strike rate and put forth a record 259 runs opening stand in just 33 overs where both completed their centuries. Warner was ruthless against Rauf, scoring 163 off 124, and helped lead his team to a big total of 367. Australia’s middle order and tail were cut down for short by Shaheen Afridi who took a fifer.
Pakistan offered a 134-run opening stand in response where Abdullah Shafique(64) and Imam-ul-Haq(71) gave them a near-perfect start. But similar to the past few outings, Babar Azam failed again, and his poor run continues. Rizwan offered a bit of resistance but it was never going to be enough against that lethal bowling performance. All just went in vain and Australia won the match by 62 runs.

Most Runs: ICC ODI World Cup 2023 – Player Ranking 1-10
Mohammad Rizwan was the only hope of the Pakistan team towards the end. He scored 46 runs but couldn’t lead his team to a win. His 40 balls 46 took him to the top of the most run scorer’s tally. He has scored 294 runs in the 4 innings in this World Cup with an average of 98. Following him are the two Indian top players- Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
Following his 163-run stand against Pakistan, David Warner has entered the top 10 of the most runs list. He got some good starts in some previous outings as well but wasn’t able to utilize them but he did it yesterday. He sits 6th with 228 runs in his kitty with an average of 57.
Abdullah Shafique had a not-so-convincing day against India but scored against the other two opponents. He also joins the top-10 most runs tally with 197 runs in 3 matches. Apart from him and Rizwan, none of the Pakistani players are even under the top 20 and that tells the story itself.
Rohit Sharma entered the top run-scorers list after his 131 against Afghanistan and he is number 2 with a batting average of 66.25. Chase Master Virat Kohli is third there in the list with a total of 259 runs in 4 innings with an average of 129.50.

Mitchell Santner is the top wicket-taker after the 4 matches of the World Cup 2023 with 11 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah is ranked second with 10 wickets. Shaheen Afridi took a giant leap with his fifer against Australia and sets his 4th place in the tally.
Zampa’s 4 wickets in the last match have put him 5th in the most wicket-takers list. He equals Shaheen Afridi in terms of Wickets(9) but has been more expensive so ranked lower. Haris Rauf also took 3 wickets despite being too much expensive.
