SHOWS: TAUNTON, ENGLAND, UNITED KINGDOM (JUNE 11, 2019) (ICC - NO RESALES) 1.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIA ONE DAY CRICKET CAPTAIN, AARON FINCH, SAYING: "And on the weather I think it might play a huge part actually in the next few days.
I think next week it starts fine up and looks good across the country for the remainder of the tournament.
But it's important that you get early wins on the board because if they do play a part you don't want to be on the wrong end of a couple of washouts that might leave you just outside that top four." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) PAKISTAN ONE DAY CRICKET CAPTAIN, SARFARAZ AHMED, SAYING: "Firstly we can't control the weather, you know, for weather it's for both teams as well.
But definitely if the match is short, definitely the planning is changed.
But if the full match is happening, so definitely we make what we are doing tomorrow, definitely the weather overcast like that, every team wanted... if anyone wanted to win the toss, definitely want to bowl first." STORY: Rain could "play a huge part" in Australia's Cricket World Cup match against Pakistan on Wednesday (June 12), Australia's one day captain Aaron Finch told media on Tuesday (June 11).
The threat of rain looms large over the contest and a record three matches have already been either abandoned or called off in the weather-hit tournament.
"It's important that you get early wins on the board because if they do play a part, you don't want to be on the wrong end of a couple of washouts that might leave you just outside that top four," Finch said.
However Pakistan's captain Sarfaraz Ahmed was more philosophical.
"We can't control the weather" he said.
"But if the full match is happening... definitely (if) the weather (is) overcast like that... if anyone wanted to win the toss, definitely want to bowl first," he added.
