Right then! Australia move to second spot with their third win in 4 games. Pakistan stay in 7th place. Which match comes up next? It is India against New Zealand, at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. We hear that the forecast is not that great. Hopefully, we are proved wrong like the one here. Join us on Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT) for all the action from Game 18. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Aaron Finch admits that Pakistan certainly tested Australia. On his thought process during that carnage, Finch says that on a small ground like this, if one's execution with the ball is not proper, he will go for runs and that is what happened. Is disappointed that the Aussies could not bat out 50 overs in spite of having an extra batsman in the side and reckons that they ended up 20-30 runs short. But is happy with the 2 points. On the team selection this morning, Aaron says that it was a tough one, as when an all-rounder gets injured, it is difficult to choose a batsman or a bowler.
Sarfaraz Ahmed says that it is very disappointing given that the way Pakistan fought with the ball, they should have won it. Amongst the positives, praises Hassan Ali and Wahab Riaz' innings with the bat. On the negatives, blames his bowlers for conceding too many runs in the first 30 overs but also praises them for coming back in the next 20. Admits that his batsmen got starts but could not convert those and states that if you want to win matches, you need to play a long innings. Is ready to take on India next.
DAVID WARNER HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS FANTASTIC 107. Warner says, when he got out they had 70 balls to go and they were looking to bat out the 50 overs and be around 340 but adds that Pakistan bowled well and made it really hard for them. States the last game was a used wicket, it was dry and the Indian bowlers gave nothing away. Further adds here he had to adapt as there was movement early on and get on top of the back of the length deliveries. Ends by saying Wahab was very good at the end but the bowlers bowled well and it was a great game.
Who is your Man Of The Match? David Warner - for his splendid century? Mohammad Amir - for bringing Pakistan back into the game with a 5-for? Pat Cummins - for keeping Pakistan quiet throughout and picking up the crucial wickets of Imam, Fakhar and Malik? Or eventually, Wahab Riaz - for making a game out of nothing? Well, the presentation is upon us...
Now comes the second innings. Full of drama. Pakistan were cruising at 136/2 in the 26th over, but then slipped to 160/6. At that stage, it looked like game over with Australia surging to a massive win. But two critical stands - 40 for the 7th wicket and 64 for the 8th wicket - got the game very close. However, Starc's double-wicket over in the 45th sealed the deal, just like it did against West Indies.
A match which Australia should have probably won by 150 runs. Because at 223/2 and David Warner going strong, it seemed like they had 400 in sight. But his wicket led to a collapse and Mohammad Amir's 5-fer restricted the Aussies to 'just' 307.
Phew! What a humdinger. A match which both deserved to lose. In a game where the side committing fewer mistakes comes out on top, Australia have managed to get those crucial points.

Kane Richardson To Shaheen Afridi OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Brilliance by Maxwell has given Australia the last wicket. Full and on off, Afridi jams it out towards cover and it goes on one bounce to the fielder inside the ring. Sarfaraz is off for a run but then realizes that Maxwell has jumped and collected the ball with one hand over his head. The Pakistan skipper tries to return but before that the Big Show hits the bull's eye at the non-striker's end. One stump to aim at and boom... Ahmed is well short. The Australian players are ecstatic as they hug each other. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 41 RUNS!

Mitchell Starc To Shaheen Afridi
Plays out the last ball but the interesting thing here is, Sarfaraz takes a single. Full toss on the pads, SA works it through square leg and a single is taken.

Mitchell Starc To Shaheen Afridi
Almost! Bowls it on a length and around off, this one shapes in late. Shaheen looks to defend but gets an inside edge towards square leg.
Shaheen Afridi is the last man in. Will this last pair play a blinder to take Pakistan home?

Mitchell Starc To Mohammad Amir OUT!
OUT! BOWLED 'EM! Two in the over for Starc and this is probably the over which completely turns the game in Australia's favour. He goes full but ends up bowling a low full toss. Amir looks to put bat on ball but gets an inside edge which shatters the stumps behind. One wicket away now Australia, Starc have two balls to do it.

BEATEN! Quick delivery on off, it skids through. Amir looks to defend but gets beaten.

Mitchell Starc To Mohammad Amir
WIDE! Goes short first up but down the leg side. Wided.
Mohammad Amir walks in at number 10, replacing Riaz. This game is not done yet. This bloke can bat too. The runs required are not that much.

Mitchell Starc To Wahab Riaz OUT!
OUT! Caught behind! This could probably be the game-changing review by Australia. Wahab Riaz is out of here. Wicket no. 8 down. Starc delivers when his team needed the most. Back of a length delivery and it lands on off, straightens after pitching. Wahab hangs his bat out. He seems to have missed it. Carey takes it and appeals. The umpire shakes his head. Finch comes running in from mid-wicket or cover, asks Smith but the latter is unsure. Finch waits, waits and waits and at the last moment, reviews just in time and replays show that there is something on the Ultra Edge when the ball passes the bat! The on-field call has been overturned. Australia heavy favorites again. 44 needed in 34 with 2 wickets in hand.
Drama! Australia reckon they have Riaz here. Has he nicked this one? Steve Smith at gully says he is unsure. Finch though thinks for a while and at the last moment, takes the review. Seems to be nothing there in the replays. Wait... Ultra Edge detects a spike! What a masterful review!

Mitchell Starc To Sarfaraz Ahmed
Well played! Clears his front leg but Starc bowls it short. Sarfaraz guides it down to third man who is very fine. So only a run.
