AUS vs PAK Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
We are choosing Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan over here due to his high batting spot. With Australia being so clinical in their top-order recently, Alex Carey was left yearning for chances to spend time out in the middle, making Rizwan the safer choice to venture with.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 Batsmen
A major reason in Australia dismantling and decimating Sri Lanka in the foregone T20 series was due to their opener Aaron Finch and David Warner. The duo were in untouchable and unforgiving form, dismissing the opposition with disdain as they walked all over Sri Lanka’s bowling attack.
Warner got 57 in the final match, a fixture which saw Aaron Finch get 37 as the two stitched together a 69 run stand opening stand to ease the side through to an easy win. Steve Smith follows u as we decide to indulge in Australia’s entire top 3 for this encounter while from Pakistan we are opting for Babar Azam who got 34 in the practice match along with Haris Sohail who came up with 32 runs in 22 balls.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 All-Rounders
In Ashton Agar, Australia have found an imperious spinner, someone who thrived against Sri Lanka. His immense deviation and turn on the ball paired with his versatile skill set has made him an extremely tricky bowler to negotiate, making him our choice for this one.
We have a spinner coming in from the opposition as well meanwhile with Imad Wasim coming in with the player ascertained to get the four bowlers with the ball as well as come out and bat in a relatively high batting position.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 Bowling Order
A stupendous display by the home side with the ball sees us make this entire facet about the options from the side. We have gotten in an entire trivalent of players from the side, picking up their new ball bowlers in the form of Mitchell Starch and Kane Richardson, bowlers whose quirky ability to mar and maul opponents saw them pick up the two wickets apiece in the final T20 against SL.
Adam Zampa was equally impressive in the same series, seeing him wrap up our Dream 11 side for this impending tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Richardson is our captain for today while we are going in with Warner as the vice-captain.
