Pakistan's last match against Sri Lanka was scheduled to be played on Friday in Bristol but that was washed out without a ball being bowled so it will be nine days between this game and their last completed match in which they beat tournament favourites England in a thriller at Trent Bridge.
In reply, Australia never looked like getting there as they managed only 316 in 50 overs with Steve Smith (69 off 70 balls) and David Warner's (56 off 84 balls) half-centuries being of little outcome.
However, the team looked scarred at The Oval, where skipper Aaron Finch, elevated after Smith was stripped of the captaincy, had to rebut suggestions of more ball-tampering.
India produced a textbook batting display in their ICC Men's Cricket World Cup clash, cautiously prodding at Australia's opening attack and then accelerating with wickets in hand - all their top order contributing. It was more the state of the game that dictated the way I played.
"I haven't seen the photos, but I know that he has hand warmers in his pocket", said Finch after the game.

He's also pretty popular on Twitter and in fact one of the most followed Indian celebrities in India on Twitter. The same group had previously hacked Twitter accounts of actors Shahid Kapoor and Anupam Kher among others.
Smith and Warner have been met with jeers at all three of Australia's games since returning to the side from the ban stemming from the ball-tampering dramas previous year.
"I just felt for him, and I told him, I'm sorry on behalf of the crowd because I've seen that happen in a few earlier games, as well, and in my opinion that's not acceptable", Kohli said.
Virat Kohli played a stupendous knock and helped the side tick the flow of runs as soon as he came out to bat.
"We've had issues in the past, we have had arguments on the field".
Meanwhile, in the same match featuring the two rivals, Indian fans in Kennigton Oval gave Smith and David Warner a rough welcome as they booed and chanted "cheater" when they took the field. "I mean what's happened has happened everyone's known that he's come back, he's worked hard, he's playing well for the side now".
