Playing at home and at full strength, Pakistan will not have a better chance to scale up the table and will be looking at the ICC ODI Player of the Year and captain Babar Azam to lead the way against the Aussies.

Australia too are precariously placed in CWCSL standings, currently placed 7th in the table with 60 points from nine games. They come into the series after a long lay-off from ODIs – they last played West Indies in July 2021.

They will be without the services of several of their key players too, with Steve Smith, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and David Warner all unavailable due to a variety of reasons.

In their absence, Australia will expect senior players such as Aaron Finch and Marcus Stoinis to step up in the crucial series.

The last time the two sides faced off in the bilateral series was in March 2019, when Australia whitewashed Pakistan 5-0 in the UAE. Bar the last two games which were close, the visitors registered convincing victories in the rest of the games. Aaron Finch led the way with 451 runs in the five matches.The two sides then clashed in the 2019 ICC Men’s World Cup in Taunton. On the back of David Warner’s century, Australia posted a massive total of 307. Despite the lower-order resistance, Pakistan fell short in their chase and were bowled out for 266.

Australia captain Aaron Finch: “It’s a great opportunity for guys to put their hands up and really build a case for their long-term spot in the squad. The excitement of having a younger side is huge, as well. It’s about guys taking their opportunities when they present themselves. There’s going to be difficult times throughout the series, but really excited for these guys to get an opportunity.”
