PAK vs AUS: Pakistan’s Strongest Playing 11 against Australia and Key Players To Watch Out For Pakistan vs Australia ODI World Cup 2023
PAK vs AUS: World Cup 2023

PAK vs AUS: Pakistan and Australia faced each other in the 10th warm-up match of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 where Australia thrashed Pakistan by 16 runs. A perfect practice game for both teams as they got eyes on their own weaknesses and strengths in subcontinental conditions. This post reads the scores of Pakistan Batters in The PAK vs AUS Warm-up Match of World Cup 2023.

Australia won the toss and the obvious choice was to bat first. Australian batters thoroughly outplayed Pakistani bowlers in the first 23 overs. At first, Warner started the fireworks, scoring 48 off 33 including 4 fours, and 3 sixes. Mitch Marsh was playing out of his zone as he scored slow 31 runs off 48 balls.

Smith, Marsh, and Carey got off to a good start but couldn’t convert it into a big score. Good 77 runs off Glenn Maxwell’s bat must have boosted his and the team’s confidence in him. Knocking 50 and 48 by Green and Inglis led Australia to a big total of 351 in their 50 overs. Haris Rauf was the most expensive bowler from Pakistan eating up more than 10 runs per over in his 9 overs.

Pakistan started the chase with 7 runs per over but Pakistan’s top order didn’t add much. Fakhar, Imam, and Abdullah, all got good starts on a decent batting surface but were unable to utilize it. Australia were in the driving seat when Labuschagne took down Shadab. Pakistan were 83 for 4 down at that stage.

Iftikhar and Babar then combined together to build a 144-run stand for the fifth wicket. Iftikhar’s 83 off 85 and Babar Azam’s quick 90 off 59 handled the situation and headed their team to cement a win in a warm-up match. It all went in vain when the lower order failed completely except for Nawaz (50).

Marnus Labuschagne was exceptional with the ball in his hands as he took 3 scalps in the middle. Pakistan were bundled out at 337 runs; 14 runs off the target and lost the 2nd warm-up match.

Down below are the the scores of Pakistan Batters in The PAK vs AUS Warm-up Match of World Cup 2023:
