MATCH 17 AUSTRALIA VS. PAKISTAN AT TAUNTON

  • Australiaís opening stand of 146 is their fourth highest at the World Cup after losing the toss and being inserted.
  • Mohammad Amirís 5 for 30 is not only the best bowling for Pakistan against Australia in the World Cup but it is also the first time a Pakistani bowler has taken five wickets in a World Cup innings against Australia. This is the tenth such time that the sides have met.
  • Amirís performance is Pakistanís fourth-best at the World Cup.
  • Amirís analysis is the best in an ODI at Taunton surpassing Indiaís Robin Singh who took 5 for 31 against Sri Lanka in 1999.

  • After the seventeenth match of the 2019 World Cup, only New Zealand (three matches) have a 100% winning record after winning the toss and fielding first. West Indies are the only other side to have won once in the same circumstances whilst Afghanistan, Bangladesh, England, West Indies, Pakistan and South Africa (twice) have lost after winning the toss and failing to make their target.
