Team Australia overpowered Pakistan in the third Quarter-Final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 by a good margin of six wickets. The Green Shirts were bowled out for 213 runs with one ball remaining and the Kangaroos achieved the target by smashing 4-216 in 33.5 overs. Earlier, India defeated Bangladesh in the second Quarter-Final by a sufficient difference of 109 runs. The Blue Shirts hammered 302 for the loss of six wickets in the allotted 50 overs and squeezed the innings of the Bengal Tigers for 193 with 30 balls still left in the game. The pumped up Indian squad is in dangerous mood and will anticipate grasping a spot in the Final while Australia has done better against them in the recent past.
Steven Smith, Shane Watson and Glenn Maxwell played match winning knocks of 65, 64 and 44 against Pakistan and David Warner scored 24 runs. Aaron Finch, Michael Clarke remained unimpressive but they can always come back in the next match and James Faulkner is a class all-rounder. Their balanced bowling attack comprises Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Johnson, Maxwell and Watson.
Rohit Sharma tasted his maiden hundred of the event while blasting 137 runs vs. Bangladesh as Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan and Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with 65, 30 and 23 runs. Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and MS Dhoni have scored plenty of runs in the tournament and their batting will be vital in the important game. Mohammed Shami is the second highest wicket taker of the Cricket World Cup with 17 scalps whereas Umesh Yadav, Mohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are bowling superbly.
