Cricket World Cup LIVE: Australia v Pakistan

Finch smacks Hafeez through the on-side in consecutive balls. Two sixes in a row.

The openers keep ticking along in Taunton. Trouble brewing for Pakistan.

Good start for the Aussies, reaching drinks without losing a wicket and going at more than six an over.

Finch goes straight down the ground for four, before cutting through the off-side. Consecutive boundaries, and another half-century for Finch. He then clocks Hazeef through the leg-side for six. 100 up for the Aussies too.

Finch faces five successive dot balls to Shaheen but plays one down the ground for four at over's end.

Spin into the attack for Pakistan, with the veteran Mohammad Hazeef to have a trundle.

Finch given not out to a straightish ball from Wahab. Pitching and impact were fine, but umpire's call for height. Finch survives on 39.

Warner works Shaheen for four behind square.

Finch edges a moving ball from Wahab but is out down by Asif at first slip. Big moment. Asif isn't a regular in the slips. Curious.

No boundaries for a while but things going OK for Australia. Pakistan need a wicket.

Wahab leaks a few at the back end of the over.
