Pakistan Team News
The No. 1 T20I side was all guns blazing against hosts Zimbabwe in the series opener with batsmen leading the charge effectively. They stuck with the same combination which featured against Scotland, having rested Mohammad Amir yet again.
There shouldn’t be any changes in the upcoming encounter against Australia, unless they include Amir in the scheme of things.
Playing XI (Last Match): Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Hussain Talat, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed(w/c), Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Usman Khan

After a forgettable England tour, Australia will be raring to set the tone in the ongoing tri-series. Skipper Aaron Finch wouldn’t like to induce much changes in the side that played in the one-off T20I against England.
Squad: D Arcy Short, Aaron Finch(c), Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Alex Carey(w), Marcus Stoinis, Ashton Agar, Andrew Tye, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Swepson, Billy Stanlake, Nic Maddinson, Jhye Richardson, Jack Wildermuth
Top Funtasy Picks
Pakistan: Shoaib Malik – The experienced campaigner averages an astronomical 102.50 in 7 T20Is this year. Back him up for the impending T20I against Australia.
Australia: Aaron Finch – The Australian skipper has been in extraordinary form, having delivered on quite a few occasions. He is expected to brace the top order against Pakistan.
Punt Pick: Mitchell Swepson – The leg spinner has a knack of providing breakthroughs at regular intervals. He could be a value pick for the upcoming game.
