India's one run win over Bangladesh brought a lifeline for Indian team and cricket fans out here. But it would have definitely broke the hears of Australian or Pakistani fans. Bangladesh was already out of contention. If they would have won against India, the competition to reach the semis would have been limited to Australia and Pakistan. Now India too is in the running for the semi final spot. That makes Australia vs Pakistan match very interesting.

So what is the scenario now? If Pakistan beats Australia and Australia beats India, it would be a three way tussle based on net run rate where India would fall out. If Pakistan lose to Australia, India would just have to beat Australia and they would be through. If Australia win both the matches, they are through to. Interesting isn't it? It's now a three way contest whereas New Zealand has already qualified for the semi finals.
Australia hasn't yet played upto the mark. They lost to New Zealand. Their win over Bangladesh wasn't a comprehensive one. Australia, in form or out of the form is always considered as the strongest team in the lot. They are always the team to beat. Pakistan hasn't been in form and beating Australia won't be easy. Australia look favourites to win this match.
Pakistan has struggled the way other teams in this group has struggled (except New Zealand). They suffered losses against India and New Zealand. They registered a comprehensive win over Bangladesh. The team hasn't got the combination right. Neither bowling nor batting has been consistent. They would need a lot to beat a team as strong as Australia.
Let us see which team nails a win here and strengthens its claim to move ahead to the knock outs. The other match for today would be South Africa vs West Indies which claims to be a high scoring match. Enjoy the live action on HotStar!
