Looking at the current form, one would probably give Pakistan a slight advantage over Australia. Pakistan started their journey with a thumping 10 wickets victory over arch rivals India followed by a 5 wicket victory over New Zealand. Having said that, Pakistan were in comparatively easier group as compared to Australia.
