Pakistan Starting 11 , Stats- 

Playing under Azar Ali’s captaincy, the young Pakistani side would display some positive approach. Lack of experience and Australian conditions are a sure threat but they do have some serious talent in the squad to overcome these worries. Azhar Ali will have to scratch his head to choose the best bowling combination on Brisbane surface and will also have to inspire the batting unit.

  • Strength : Azar Ali’s purple patch should inspire other batsmen.
  • Weakness : The pace bowling although looks talented, so far has brought downfall in the series.
