Pakistan will head into Wednesday's crucial World Cup game high on confidence, having beaten the favourites and co-hosts England at Trent Bridge on 3rd June. As their last match against Sri Lanka was washed out, Pakistan have three points from as many games.
Australia, on the other hand, started the tournament brightly, beating Afghanistan and West Indies before being given a reality check by India, who outplayed them at the Oval last Sunday.
Although Australia have history on their side, having recently thrashed Pakistan in a five-match ODI series in the U.A.E., no one can take Pakistan lightly as they can beat any team on their day.
