Cummins rested as Aussies aim for another series

Australia finally decided to rest fast bowler Pat Cummins for the third and the final match of the series.

The pacer has recently been part of the Australian set up for almost all the matches, and Billy Stanlake will come into his place. Sean Abbott could also get a lookup. The rest of the lineup should be the same as the previous match.

Musa in contention as Pakistan battle for a win

With Mohammad Irfan not having a great comeback series, we could see Mohammad Musa coming into the side in his place.

Musa bowls at a rapid pace and could be useful in Perth. There is also the temptation of playing Khushdil Shah, but bringing in a debutant in a crucial match such as this could be a bit risky.

With a sunny afternoon and good weather, the two teams will hope that they even get the right batting track. The wicket in Perth does have some pretty good bounce and pace. This allows the batsman to play their shots easily but at the same time, keeps the bowlers in the match.
