Now the five-time ODI champion side will look to cash in against the Pakistani team to get their campaign going.
Smith, Warner and Maxwell are yet to fire for Australia in this event. So these three will be the batters to watch out for from the Aussies team.
On the other hand, the men in the green side will have to come up after they had suffered a thrashing defeat against the men in blue side in Ahemdabad on Saturday.
Pakistan will want their batsmen to deliver in front of a brilliant bowling lineup of the Aussies. Skipper Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Saud Shakeel will be the batters to watch out for in this match.
