HEAD TO HEAD

The two sides have met on nine occasions in Cricket World Cups.

Australia currently have the upper hand, having won five of the matches to Pakistan’s four.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Ahead of the match Pakistan Captain, Sarfaraz Ahmed said: “”We have not won many matches against Australia but we had not won too many against England either and we managed to beat them.

“We will be as positive and aggressive as we were against England, that is the level of performance we want and need to be successful against a team like Australia.

“That last win at Trent Bridge gives us confidence and belief but we know that Australia will come hard at us and we will be ready.”

Australian skipper, Aaron Finch said: “Pakistan are a very dangerous side and we’ve seen consistently at ICC tournaments that they always get themselves in a position to win, regardless of their form.

“They’ve got some world-class players, there is no player you can disregard, they’ve got match winners and experience, you need to play your best to beat them.”
