Australia jumped to the second position in the ICC World Cup 2019 points table with a 41-run win over Pakistan at Taunton on Wednesday. David Warner roared back to form by scoring his first century since returning to Australia colours to power Australia to 307 all out in 49 overs. In reply, Pakistan did look good in patches but were guilty of losing wickets in bunches in crucial times as Australia bowled them out for 266.
Australia, now with three wins from 4 matches, are tied with New Zealand at six points. New Zealand, though continue to lead the ICC World Cup 2019 points table by virtue of a better a run rate.

Australia jumped over India and hosts England to take the second spot. India, however, have a chance to regain the second spot by beating New Zealand on Thursday.
Pakistan, on the other hand, slumped to no. 8 in World Cup team standings with just 3 points in 4 games. Pakistan had beaten England but lost to West Indies and Australia. The washout against Sri Lanka also did not help their cause either.
