It was also the first time Australia have lost a World Cup game while chasing since 1999. <p></p> <p></p>Pakistan, meanwhile, have a topsy-turvy campaign so far. They were humbled against West Indies by seven wickets but bounced back to pull off an upset against hosts <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/news/">England</a>, winning that match at Trent Bridge, Nottingham by 14 runs.
