Australia and Pakistan are set to take each other on in the third quarterfinal match of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. Both teams fought hard to get to the Knockout Stage, and they certainly want to win so they can continue moving on. You can watch all of the action streaming live online so don’t miss a second from the pitch.
Australia finished the Group Stage with a record of 4-1, and there was one other match that was abandoned without a ball being bowled thanks to inclement weather. Their lone loss came against New Zealand while they defeated England, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, and Scotland to advance.
On the other side of things, Pakistan ended the Group Stage with a record of 4-2 with their losses coming India and West Indies in their first two matches. Since then, they have won four in a row with victories over Zimbabwe, United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and Ireland.
Australia’s Mitchell Johnson has had an off rhythm during the uneven schedule of the team, per ESPN Cric Info. He truly feels as if his game is getting better as the Cricket World Cup moves on.
“I just feel like I’m starting to click now.”
If both Johnson and Mitchell Starc can truly get their game going, then Pakistan is going to be in for a very long afternoon. They have plenty of weapons of their own though, and it has helped them win four games in a row.
If Younis Khan can’t step up his batting game though, then Australia will look to take advantage of his recent poor play. Luckily, Pakistan knows the pitch surface of Adelaide very well as they’ve played there twice before and have been there for 10 days to prepare.
The match between Australia vs. Pakistan is scheduled to begin at 14:00 local time (03:30 GMT) on Saturday, March 20, at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide, SA Australia.
ESPN will begin online streaming at 11 p.m. EST on Friday, March 19, but that is just one option to watch Australia vs. Pakistan live. ESPN does charge a fee to watch all of the matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, so be aware of that.
Some of the other options include CricHD, PTV Sports, Sky Sports 2, or Star Sports, and these will be good to check out Australia vs. Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. You will be able to enjoy any of these streaming options to watch the match live, and you won’t miss a moment of the action.
