Our prediction:

We predict that Australia will win the match. Team Australia is very strong while the team Pakistan is not so strong. Just a few days back they collapsed against India very quickly. 

According to our sports experts, if Australia wins the toss & opts for the batting first there is a high probability of making 300 to 320. This will put pressure on the team Pakistan and the team Pakistan is very bad at handling the Wor;d Cup pressure. So, eventually, the team Pakistan will collapse very soon.
