Pakistan has lost the first and third ODIs. They, however, had shown its past brilliance and won the second ODI.

Australia has the upper hand, and it will be a herculean effort for the Pindi team to come back in the match and save the series. Pakistan cannot afford any lapses if they want to remain in contention.

Formidable spin attack but weak upper order batting

The Pakistan top order has consistently failed to deliver, and if they can get their act and make a 100 plus runs without losing many wickets, they have a chance to come back in the series. Pakistan has a formidable trio in the form of Muhammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, and Imad Wasim. If they can click as a team, they can make life difficult for the Australians.

Match highlights

Australia will try to dent the spin attack with David Warner and Usman Khawaja who have still to prove their selection.

Adam Zampa could contribute with his neat leg spin.

Pakistan is hoping to replicate their exploits at the SCG. Ashar Ali is fit and back in the team, and this is good news for the visiting side.

He can get good support from Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan.

Azhar will probably replace Asad Shafiq, who made only 13 and 5 in the second and third ODIs.Meanwhile, the Kangaroos will try to wrap up the series and ensure that it will be the deciding match of the series.
