Pakistan Fan Becomes A Hilarious Meme After Team's Batting Collapse Against Australia

Pakistan looked to be sinking at 6-160 but it was a different story at 7-264 after Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz and captain Sarfraz Ahmed led a big-hitting rearguard action.

An elated Warner leapt in the air in celebration but his 111-ball innings ended soon afterwards when he was caught at point off Shaheen, having gone past fifty for the third time in four innings at this World Cup. It was only when Mitchell Starc kept his cool and bowled brilliantly in his ninth over and picked up two wickets which allowed Australia to win the match.

Pace spearhead Mohammad Amir soaked up the adulation from Pakistan fans as he roared to the top of the World Cup bowling charts with career-best figures against Australia on Wednesday. Guys like Hassan and Wahab are good strikers of the ball.

The rest of Australia's bowlers are also significantly more expensive than the frontline duo, with Starc (5.38 economy rate) and Cummins (4.40) the only bowlers going at less than a run a ball.

"Pakistan have got to take positives out of what they did to India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy a couple of years ago".

After losing to India on Sunday, Australia needed a response and Warner, back from serving a 12-month suspension for his part in last year's ball-tampering scandal, struck a classy 107 in his side's 307 all out in 49 overs.

An application has also been filed in Peru in May, according to the country's antitrust agency Indecopi. The move essentially banned Huawei from getting electrical components and software from U.S. companies.

"We made too many mistakes in all departments", said Sarfarez. "Except for Amir the other bowlers did not bowl really well", Sarfraz said at the post-match presentation.

"That's the big improvement in my game in the last couple of years, the ability to hold a length and make it hard to get runs", said Cummins.

Amir was on target right from the start after Sarfaraz won the toss on an overcast morning at southwest county Somerset's headquarters.

Assessing the tense finish, he added: "It was probably a lot closer than we expected but I thought it was a great game".

Ali's blunder to put David Warner down while fielding on the fence at third man was a sitter - but the fan standing just a few metres away on the rope refused to react.

"We made some runs and got starts but we've got to convert them and go long". Similarly, skipper Aaron Finch scored 82 runs.
