David Warner posted his first worldwide century since returning from a 12-month ban to launch Australia's innings but fell for 107 as Pakistan rallied to dismiss the defending champions for 307 at the Cricket World Cup at Taunton. When I was going for a game, it was in my mind to twirl my moustache during the game. At the end of the over, Finch was 35 not out and left-hander David Warner 33 not out.
"I think Pakistan are obviously a very risky side", Finch said of Pakistan, who have only won one of their last 14 matches against Australia.
In the meantime, it has been learned that ahead of Pakistan's fourth match against Australia at The Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton, skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed isn't happy by any means.
Another collapse, this one entirely of Pakistan's own making, followed, before a late rearguard by Hasan Ali and Wahab Riaz put the fear of God into Australia.
Warner wasn't exactly back to his best, but he still reached his first hundred for Australia since 2017 from 102 balls, stroking 11 boundaries and a six in the process.
Mohammad Hafeez's moustache has been one of the talking points in the World Cup.
He removed Usman Khawaja (18) and Shaun Marsh (23) then had Alex Carey lbw for 20 before wrapping up the Australia innings when Mitchell Starc flat-batted straight to Shoaib Malik.
The show, then, belonged to Amir. As Australia looked for quick runs, Amir showed his class by bowling another maiden over.
"Firstly, we can't control the weather, you know".
Babar Azam (30), along with Imam however did not get bogged down and fought back to put on a half-century partnership for the second wicket. They usually win such games, however, and Pakistan tend to find a way to lose them.
The left-hander arrived at the World Cup in form, having hit more than 2200 runs at an average of above 50 in global Twenty20 leagues and Sydney grade cricket during his 12-month ban from the Australian side.
Shortly after, Sarfaraz caught Coulter-Nile off a delivery from Wahab in the 47th over.
"Yes, we had been losing but we were playing good cricket", Hafeez explained.
The Aussies broke free against Shaheen Afridi, with Finch hitting him over the deep square leg fence for a six and Warner employing the pull shot to get a four.
Pakistan's captain Sarfaraz Ahmed rues "small mistakes" in all three departments of game after his side's loss against Australia in World Cup match.
