Maxwell and Warner sets the game on fire

The match between Afghanistan and Australia actually reminded everyone that they are playing on the world’s fastest pitch. The hosts really beat the Afghani team with quite a score that set the new record in the history of Worldcup. It as Afghanistan’s first time on the WACA.  But the overall game by team really represented a great lack of experience and team work. The players were actually giving quite an opportunity of clear run-outs, rather than saving the wickets and cut angles better to stop singles, the indiscipline of the team actually made them loose the match.

Beside the poor game by the Afghanistan’s team, let’s throw a light n the game by the Australian cricket team. Maxwell and Warner actually set the game to fire, with Maxwell coring 178 off 133 balls, which is a new Australian record, and his  260-run partnership with Smith is the highest for his country for any wicket. Warner crossed 150 in the 25th over, yet another amazing score by a great batsman. The bowling of the Australian team was also exceptional, as Afghanistan was bowled out at 142 and lost the match by 275 runs. This is perhaps the largest margin of defeat in World Cups.

It is true that Australian team did show a remarkable performance, but then again, it was against a weak team, like Afghanistan. However, it is clear that the Afghanistan’s team need a lot more practice and guidance to face an experienced team in the world cup next time.2
