ODI no. 3139: Australia v Pakistan

The last time Australia were defeated in a World Cup match was in 1999. Who beat them at the time? Pakistan. Today, it was the same deal:

The first team to beat Australia in a World Cup in 35 games and 12 years was always going to have to play a big game to do it.

Another amazing coincidence: Australia were not knocked out of the tournament as a result of their defeat in '99 and it's the same today.

Pakistan's bowling won them this game. It is what always wins them games and what always makes them a contender.

So very true.

Let's see if Australia can handle India next. I bet that they don't have the firepower to stop the Indian batsmen in their home turf. Yes, the Aussies will not make it to the semis for the first time since 1992!



India has not beaten Aus since 1987. So I have not much hope for this team. We are out in QF.

BTW Pak team looks damn good. They can go upto finals or even win the cup.
