  • Captain Sarfaraz urges Pakistan to improve fielding against India

Pakistan's opener looked in fine form and had just reached his 50 in a dangerous-looking partnership with veteran Mohammad Hafeez.

Waqar believes Pakistan were done in by the new ball, in both batting bowling, against Australia on Wednesday.

Australia lost the toss and will bat first under overcast conditions in Taunton, with Marcus Stoinis ruled out with a side strain and Adam Zampa dropped in favour of four quicks.

Pakistan's Imam-ul-Haq said this weekend's "huge-pressure" World Cup game against arch-rivals India was a must-win clash for his side after their defeat by Australia.

Despite some late defiance from captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and freewheeling number nine Wahab Riaz, Pakistan succumbed to a 41-run loss to Australia on Wednesday and are now in an increasingly precarious position in eighth place in the standings.

Warner, who notched his 15th ODI century, said Australia's lower-than-expected total had left the game in the balance.

When asked about the high intensity game of India and Pakistan, the batsman replied, "Obviously, to be part of that kind of game, it's great".

While chasing the 308-run target, Pakistan was bundled out for 266 runs in 45.4 overs. After breaking the 146-run opening stand between Finch and Warner, the Pakistani seamer stood up to his skipper's expectations when the responsibility was handed to him.

"We need to improve because if we want to beat bigger teams like Australia and India then all three aspects of the game are crucial", said Sarfaraz.

Warner also praised Amir for his show.

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.

Shaheen Shah Afridi removed Warner - the 32-year-old caught at deep point - and cleaned up Maxwell through the gate, while Amir followed his dismissal of Finch by accounting for Marsh, Usman Khawaja (18) and Alex Carey (20) before completing his five-for by banishing Mitchell Starc (3).

When Fakhar Zaman was caught by Kane Richardson attempting to cut Pat Cummins in the second over, it could've been the start of a long afternoon for the Pakistan fans.

"When I got out, we had 70 balls to go".
