Australia faced their only loss against New Zealand and one match was washed out. Apart from those two matches they have been comprehensive in their wins. Similar is the case for Pakistan. After losing to India they seemed to have lost their way. But then they registered some good wins to make a place in the quarter finals.
Although Australia looks comparatively stronger, they can't take Pakistan lightly. Especially when they know they have already won a world cup in Australia. Michael Clarke believes Pakistan team has been underrated in the recent past. He feels the team has a lot of talent and it is well captained by Misbah. He knows Adelaide pitch will have a layer of grass that will help Aussie quickies. But the same can help Pakistan bowlers as well.
Bad news for Pakistan - Mohammad Irfan has been ruled out of the world cup due to a fractured pelvis. But the likes of Sohail Khan, Wahab Riaz or Shahid Afridi still make the bowling attack strong.
Pakistan played their first and last group stage match at Adelaide. So they are pretty comfortable playing here at Adelaide. Above all the team has made their idea pretty clear that they will play equally aggressive cricket against the mighty Australians.
Both the teams have won four matches each in the group stage. Let us see who nails the quarter final and advances to the semi final match.
