Pakistan team/playing XI
1 Sahibzada Farhan, 2 Babar Azam, 3 Mohammad Hafeez, 4 Shoaib Malik, 5 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt, wk), 6 Asif Ali, 7 Imad Wasim, 8 Shadab Khan, 9 Faheem Ashraf, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Usman Khan Shinwari.
Australia team/playing XI
1 Aaron Finch (capt), 2 Alex Carey (wk), 3 Chris Lynn, 4 Ben McDermott, 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6 Mitchell Marsh, 7 D’Arcy Short, 8 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9 Andrew Tye, 10 Adam Zampa, 11 Nathan Lyon.
Conditions are much they same as they were on Friday. Australia will be keen to give batting first a try, though, after their unsuccessful chasing efforts. It’s hard to see Australia making a raft of changes. It is improved performances that will get them results; there’s no X-factor sitting on the bench. Mitchell Starc is unlikely to be risked so soon after injury, given the series is gone. Ashton Agar may come back to the side, with Ben McDermott the likeliest to make way.
Pakistan could experiment, having already sealed the series. But everyone in the squad is more than up to the challenge, and competition for places is fierce. Opener Sahibzada Farhan may be given the chance to add to his solitary international cap, while Waqas Maqsood, included in the squad place of Mohammad Amir, could make his debut.
