Clinical bowling dismisses Pakistan early

Sports Reporter
PAKISTAN was bowled out for 266 in the second inning of the 2019 Cricket World Cup against Australia handing the defending champions a much needed victory.
Australia won the game by 41 runs.
David Warner’s first century since returning from his ban helped Australia to 307 after which the bowlers produced a clinical performance that helped them defend their total with ease.
Sent in to bat, Australia was off to a steady start with Warner and skipper Aaron Finch helping the team to 50 in 10 overs. Australia seemed headed for a mammoth total as the managed 223/2 in the 34th over. With the exception of the excellent Mohammad Amir, Pakistan’s attack struggled early on and was not helped by woeful fielding.
In response, Pakistan got off to a dreadful start as they lost Fakhar Zaman early. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam tried to reconstruct the Pakistani chase but wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals. However, a late partnership between Wahab Riaz and skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed gave the Asian side a glimmer of hope.
