They are doing that already, aren't they?
(As of 20.06.19)
In 5 matches, Australia has won 4 of them. They sit 3rd on the points table, behind New Zealand and England.
So, except for their defeat to India, the Aussies have been playing fairly consistently (and dominatingly).

The top four: Steven Smith, David Warner, Glen Maxwell, and Aaron Finch… They are all in great form.
In the bowling end, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Adam Zampa are putting up great performances.
So, yes, it looks like Australia is doing a good job at defending their title at this World Cup 2019.
However, of course, just playing good isn’t sufficient in such high-stake tournaments. You don’t just have to play well. You also have to outplay others.
And at present, New Zealand looks in incredible form.
England, expectedly, is forming well on its home grounds.
Played one match less but still has MORE NRR, India is just one position behind Australia on 4th position. And it's about time the Men in Blue will climb higher on the points table.

So, Australia is a playing good this World Cup 2019. However, there are a few teams that are playing even better. If the Aussies have to keep their title of world champion, they are going to have to outperform others. And it's not going to be easy in the semi-finals and finals.
We're certainly reaching to a point where World Cup 2019 is becoming a lot more interesting than what many predicted. Of course, we would all have to pray that rain doesn’t kill that momentum.
