    History points to run-fest as Langer flags change

    Australia could recall paceman Jason Behrendorff on Wednesday in a bid to halt another opposition batting onslaught as they prepare to face giant-killers Pakistan at a venue that’s been a bowlers' graveyard in recent years.

    The reigning 50-over world champions struggled to contain India's world-class top-order on Sunday, with their failure to take early wickets proving costly as Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli and co. scored at close to eight-an-over for the final 40 overs of their innings.

    Unless inclement weather juices up the Taunton surface this week, Australia could be in for a similar challenge when they take on Pakistan at the venue in England’s west country that once saw Chris Gayle hit 15 sixes in a county T20 match.

    Over the past two English domestic one-day seasons, Taunton has boasted the highest average scoring rate (6.74) of all 11 venues being used for this World Cup, as well as the highest average first-innings score (316).

    Last week’s New Zealand-Afghanistan match was the ground’s first ODI since the 1999 World Cup in the United Kingdom.

    Coach Justin Langer said the Aussies had considered bringing in Behrendorff for Nathan Coulter-Nile to play India, despite the latter having earnt player-of-the-match honours for his match-winning 92 in their previous match against West Indies.

    They ultimately stuck with the incumbent at The Oval and Coulter-Nile responded to conceding 14 runs from his first over to finish with the respectable figures of 1-63 from 10 overs.

    But Langer said Australia are not opposed to playing both Behrendorff, a noted wicket-taker with the new ball, and fellow left-arm quick Mitchell Starc in the same XI.

    "We just felt with Coults, after his man-of-the-match performance and what he gives us as an all-round package, we went with him," Langer said.

    "But I can see that (Behrendorff playing), I can definitely see that. I know that Pakistan play two left armers. It's bit like Bobby Simpson telling me in 1993 you can't have two left-handed openers … that changed over the years.

    "You just pick the best guys who are best matched to the game."

    Coulter-Nile, who nearly reeled in a diving one-hander at square leg to remove Rohit Sharma in the opening over of the game, impressed Langer amid the flurry of runs.

    "I was really impressed with Coults today," he said. "I thought his first over ... that's an area he knows he needs to improve on, whether it's nerves or getting into the rhythm early.

    "He was expensive in his first over, but after that I thought he was good. He was up and about in the field. I thought he took some confidence out of his batting in the last game.

    "He is a very good all-round cricketer. If he had of taken the catch against Rohit earlier, it would have been a screamer, not many blokes would have got even close. He is a good all-round package and he is playing pretty good cricket at the moment."

    Australia are set to face a Pakistan side sky-high on confidence after they pulled off a major upset by smashing 348 to defeat tournament favourites England last week.

    Having knocked over the two bottom-ranked teams at the tournament in Afghanistan and West Indies and then losing to heavyweights India, an unpredictable Pakistan side looms as a key test of where Australia stand.

    Despite earning the nickname 'Ciderabad' for its propensity to spin in four-day games (and the region’s reputation for producing fermented apple juice), Taunton has in fact had the second lowest percentage of wickets taken by slow bowlers in domestic 50-over games over the past two years.

    That could count against Nathan Lyon, who is also pushing for inclusion to partner fellow spinner Adam Zampa.

    With Australia in the middle of a four-match stretch in nine days, Langer is also mindful of keeping his fast bowlers fresh, though he's hopeful the likes of Starc and Pat Cummins won't need to be rested.

    "In a perfect world, you just have the best team to play every game when you possibly can," said Langer, who identified managing the schedule as his biggest challenge at this World Cup.

    "I love this format but it's bloody hard. There's no easy games. We're all over the place. It (travel) is probably as hard as the cricket, honestly."

    Sarfaraz vows aggressive, positive cricket against Australia

    TAUNTON: Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has vowed to repeat the aggression and positivity his side showed against England, when Pakistan take on Australia in the World Cup game on Wednesday.

    Pakistan will face the defending champions Australia at Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton.

    The game will be Pakistan’s fourth encounter in ICC World Cup 2019. They were beaten by West Indies before they outclassed England at Nottingham. The game against Sri Lanka at Bristol last Friday was washed out without a ball being bowled.

    Skipper Sarfaraz is confident of a good show against the Aussies.

    “We will go in as positive and aggressive as we were against England,” he said.

    “We have confidence from the last win although we would have loved to go with two wins but you can’t do much about the weather,” Sarfaraz added.

    Australia were beaten by India at the Oval on Sunday, but they defeated Afghanistan and West Indies before losing to India in the tournament.

    Sarfaraz is well aware of Australia’s strengths. The wicket-keeper batsman said that the return of David Warner and Steve Smith has made Australia a stronger side and Pakistan can’t take them lightly.

    “We know Australia will come down hard and with Smith and Warner back they are at their best again and we give respect to all opponents."

    World Cup: Pakistan should be cautious against Starc, says Raja

    Pakistan former captain turned cricket commentator Ramiz Raja has urged his side to be careful especially against Aussie speedster Mitchell Starc as the two sides meet at the ICC World Cup 2019 match tomorrow at Taunton.

    Pakistan batting line should not give away their wickets against Starc, even if we need to lower down our strike rate we should do it because it will get recovered in the later overs. However, if Strac is able to take wickets then it will kill the rhythm of the batting line,” he said.

    The former captain further said that the Pakistani batting line should play cautiously in the first 10-overs of the game and try not to lose wickets against the likes of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. “If we are able to survive that initial burst, then it would highly advantageous for us as the rest of the Australian bowling line could be tamed.”

    Giving out the strategies Raja said that Pakistan should aim to attack the defending champions mentally. Pakistan needs to be mentally strong, because Australia is one of the most mentally strong side, and if Pakistan is able to hit them their then they would be able to beat them,” said Ramiz Raja.

    This pitch makes batsmen. Bat on this green mamba for 2 hours against Starc and Cummins or Wahab, Amir and you will transform as a batsman.
