World Cup 2023: Pakistan field first against Australia

Bengaluru (Web Desk): Pakistan won the toss and opted to field first against Australia in their fourth match of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in India's Bangalore on Friday.

Pakistan have made one change in today's match against Australia as Osama Mir replaces Shadab Khan. While Australia, with no changes in team, are playing with the same squad.

After winning the toss, captain Babar Azam said that we have trained well for this match and had many good practice sessions. 

Australian captain Pat Cummins said that batting first is also fine, but if they had won the toss, they would have fielded first.
