Australia vs Afghanistan
2015 ICC Cricket World Cup in Aus and NZ
WACA Ground, Perth, 4th Mar, 2015
Australia won by 275 runs David Warner is the Man of the Match
That will do it for us tonight. Australia now prepare for their crucial clash again Sri Lanka at the SCG on Sunday. Join us for that, and for all World Cup matches as Bangladesh take on Scotland in a must win game for them tomorrow. Bye for now.

Johnson returned to form for Australia with 4/22 and Starc looked dangerous again. The man of the match is of course David Warner who blasted a career high 178 runs to set up the easiest of victories for the home side.

Afghanistan struggled with the pace and bounce in the pitch and fell away in the finish after a decent start. Nawroz impressed with the bat but he was the only batsmen to score more than 25 runs in a dominant bowling and fielding display from the Aussies.

A comprehensive win and they just about ticked all boxes, here, their all-around game was spot on and the only concerns are the apparent injury to Mitch Marsh, though he continued fielding, and the captain not getting a hit.

A World Cup record winning margin of victory for the Aussies who have thrashed Afghanistan by 275 runs in front of almost 13,000 fans. The win they needed to consolidate their position within the top four of Pool A and boost their net run rate.

Over 37.3: Johnson to Hamid Hassan, OUT, no run

Pakistan vs United Arab Emirates
2015 ICC Cricket World Cup in Aus and NZ
McLean Park, Napier, 4th Mar, 2015
Pakistan won by 129 runs Ahmed Shehzad is the Man of the Match
Pakistan, still alive in the tournament, this win moves them to 4th spot, leapfrogging Ireland, however the Irish do still have a game in hand.

Despite the big margin, one gets the feeling that Pakistan will be a bit disappointed with that performance, unable to remove the UAE batsmen within the 50 overs. They were hamstrung, literally, with a leg injury to Irfan who could only bowl 3 overs.

Shehzad named Man of the Match for his fine innings earlier.

In the end the margin is 129 runs, the UAE concentrated on batting out the 50 overs and never worried about the run chase. Anwar top scored with 62 which makes him the leading run scorer for the tournament. Well supported by Khurram, Patil and Javed.

Over 49.6: Wahab Riaz to Mohammad Tauqir, no run, Full, pushed out on the off side and that's the end of the innings. An easy win for Pakistan. UAE 8/210 (Mohammad Naveed 0, Mohammad Tauqir 0)

Patil b Wahab 36 (68 b 2x4 0x6): F,o,W, 8 for 210: Partnership of 2: New batsman is Tauqir.
