Here’s the updated ICC Cricket World Cup Super League points table following Pakistan’s defeat against Australia

Pakistan vs Australia first ODI

Australia comfortably defeated Pakistan in the first One Day International (ODI) of the three match series in Lahore. The visiting team defeated the hosts by 88 runs to take 1-0 lead in the series.

It is pertinent to mention that the Aussies are without some of their best players in the ODI series. Pakistan was expected to perform much better than the way they did in the first ODI.

The Aaron Finch men put a big total of 313/7 in their allotted 50 overs on the board. Travis Head smashed the Pakistani players all around the park to hit a century on his ODI comeback. Ben McDermott also contributed with a half a century.

Pakistan’s batting line-up failed to chase the target:

The Men in Green lost Fakhar Zaman early in the chase as he departed for only 18 runs. Imam ul Haq along with skipper Babar Azam gave Pakistan some hope with 96 runs partnership.

Just after the partnership was broken, Pakistan suffered a middle-order collapse. Adam Zampa picked four wickets to bowl Pakistan out for 225 runs.

Watch the highlights

The Aussie captain was delighted with his team’s performance.

“We felt we needed something around the 300-mark. It was made easier by Travis who got off to a flier. We felt like we needed a spinner based on how dry the square was. We have come here with an open mind to be flexible and select the side. The guys were struggling at the back end to hold the ball. It is easy for the set batters, but it is tough for the new ones coming in,” said Finch in the post-match.

The defeat against Australia made Pakistan’s position in the ICC World Cup Super League points table even worse. Here’s the ICC Super League points table:
