Marcus Stoinis in doubt as much-maligned replacement touted

Marcus Stoinis in doubt as much-maligned replacement touted

Australia boasts of one of the strongest top-orders in this World Cup.

Before that, Pakistan had brought their campaign back on track with a surprise 14-run win against tournament favourites England, after a poor defeat at the hands of the West Indies.

Sarfraz admitted that while Pakistan haven't beaten Australia often, they faced the same situation when going up against England.

"Factoring in a reserve day for every match at the World Cup would significantly increase the length of the tournament and practically, would be extremely complex to deliver", he said via an ICC statement.

Rain is also forecast for the majority of the day, although there is some chance of it clearing to allow for the possibility of a shortened game.

There is a risk some teams may be affected more than others.

The opener came under fire during the match with commentator and Sri Lanka legend Kumar Sangakkara hinting Warner needed to "free himself up".

"Hasan (Ali) had a great Champions Trophy as well", said Finch of the pace bowler who was the player of the Champions Trophy with 13 wickets in 2017.

"It might play a huge part actually in the next few days", Finch said from Taunton, where the Australian team was forced to train indoors due to the wet weather.

"I am not thinking about them, what they are thinking at the moment".

"I don't think Pakistani people will do that".

All-rounder Stoinis picked up a side strain in the game against India and has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against Pakistan at Taunton.

Marsh was not included in Australia's original 15-man squad for the World Cup but is a member of the Australia A side which will begin a tour of England in the run-up to the Ashes Test series that starts after the one-day worldwide showpiece event.

"You just have to make sure you're as well prepared as you can be", Finch said of the weather.

"You never bank on rain, you always prepare for the full 50 overs, and you work on the spot".

"Everyone has to be prepared to shuffle their roles about a bit and be really adaptable".
