During India’s clash against Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 (CWC19) a section of the crowd booed at the former Australian captain Steve Smith, who made his comeback after a one-year suspension in the ball-tampering case. After noticing crowd taunting Smith, India captain Virat Kohli asked the fans not to boo at Australian cricketer and even apologised to him. Australia vs Pakistan, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match Preview: Amid Rain Scare in Taunton AUS Look to Bounce Back Against Rejuvenated PAK.

When asked would he react the same way as Kohli did if Smith is booed again during Pakistan’s clash against Australia in Taunton, Sarfraz said, “I don´t think Pakistani people will do that. Pakistani people love cricket, they love to support and they love the players.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan will be hoping that the weather stays clear as they face Australia. The Green Shirts’ World Cup match Bristol was washed-out due to rain and there are fears that weather will play spoilsport in Pakistan’s second consecutive match. Pakistan vs Australia Betting Odds: Free Bet Odds, Predictions and Favourites During PAK vs AUS in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match 17.
