Pakistan Preview

Pakistan’s batters have played extremely well in their last test match. All of the team's strong performances, however, have occurred when the team was playing for a draw. Pakistan's batting unit will have to start scoring runs from the first inning onwards if they are to win this match. In the 2nd Test match against Australia, Pakistan’s batting unit was completely dismantled by the Australian bowlers. In the 1st inning, they managed to score 148 runs in 53 overs. The wickets kept falling after regular intervals and the batsmen lacked an intent to spend more time at the crease. 

In the 2nd innings, Pakistan had a target of 506 runs to win the test match. Abdullah Shafique, Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan staged excellent batting performances and pulled off an extraordinary draw against Australia. Babar Azam played a brilliant knock by scoring 196 runs in 425 balls. Mohammad Rizwan scored 104 runs while Abdullah Shafique scored 96 runs. The target of 526 seemed to be an impossible task for Pakistan, by the end of the match they were just short of 63 runs to win the match.

Even though the match ended in a draw, this match was a big boost for the team morale. Pakistan have a strong bowling unit, especially the pace attack. Bowlers have not been able to impress in the series yet but it will be crucial for Pakistani bowlers to pick wickets early and maintain the pressure on the Australian batting unit. 

Key Players:  Abdullah Shafique,  Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Shaheen Shah Afridi

Pakistan Predicted Playing XI:

Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Babar Azam (c), Azhar Ali, Mohammd Rizwan (wk), Iftikhar Ahmed, Fawad Alam. Nauman Ali, Sajid Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah.

Australia Preview

Australia have displayed an all-round performance. Their batting has been steady, while their bowling unit has dominated Pakistan's batting line-up. Despite their impressive performance, they have yet to win this series. Australia will like to finish the series on a high note and clinch the Benaud-Qadir Trophy.

In their last match at Karachi, Australia won the toss and chose to bat first. They posted a total of 556 runs in 189 overs. Usman Khawaja scored 160 of 369 balls, while Alex Carey fell short of 7 runs to score a century. Although Marnus Labuschagne was departed early with a score of 0, Steven Smith scored 72 runs off 214 balls and supported the middle-order batting. With a strong batting performance, Australia seemed to be in a comfortable position in the match. Australia did not enforce a follow-on, they scored 97 runs for 2 wickets and declared their innings to play for a win. 

Australian bowlers destroyed the Pakistani batting line-up as they managed to all-out the hosts for just 148 runs in 53 overs. Mitchell Starc led the bowling attack for Australia and claimed 3 wickets in the 2nd innings. Mitchell Swepson, the debutant claimed 2 wickets but eventually conceded runs with a high economy rate. The Australian bowling team struggled in the last innings of the match, failing to claim wickets and draw an easy winning match.

Consistency in batting has been the strength for Australia throughout the series. For Australia to win this match and series, they will have to deliver consistent performance with their bowling attack. Patt Cummins, Nathan Lyon, and Mitchell Starc would be expected to deliver regular wickets for Australia in this contest.
