The most crucial game for the Pakistan team has just begun as Pakistan is set to face Australia in their 4th World Cup game. Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first. The match will be played at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, India, at 1:30 Pakistan Time.
Let’s take a deeper look at both teams’ lineups and what we can expect from this exciting match.
Pakistan’s Playing XI:
Abdullah Shafique Imam-ul-Haq Babar Azam (c) Mohammad Rizwan (wk) Saud Shakeel Iftikhar Ahmed
Usama Mir Mohammad Nawaz Hasan Ali Shaheen Afridi Haris Rauf
Australia’s Playing XI:
Mitchell Marsh David Warner Steven Smith Marnus Labuschagne Josh Inglis (wk) Glenn Maxwell
Marcus Stoinis Mitchell Starc Adam Zampa Patt Cummins (c) Josh Hazlewood
Pakistan has decided to make a change by replacing vice-captain Shadab Khan with Usama Mir. Shadab was not performing well with both the ball and the bat and was struggling to take wickets.
Furthermore, the rest of the side remains unchanged in both the batting department and the fast bowling department.
On the other hand, Australia has maintained an unchanged playing XI as they emerged victorious in their last game against Sri Lanka and decided to stick with the same lineup.
