Pakistan has been on the receiving end of after losing 2 consecutive matches to Australia. It has been a disappointing series for Pakistan, given their bowlers haven’t performed as they are expected to and their batting has been the biggest downfall. Two batting collapses on a subcontinent pitch is not acceptable from a team like Pakistan. They looked shaky right from the first match from the time they took the field. Misbah ul haq as a captain is not helping to boost the morale of the side with his lacklustre decision making and poor batting. On the other hand, Australia have dominated and won the 3 match ODI series. Glenn Maxwell was the star, first with the ball in the first match and then with the bat in the second match.

 Pakistan will be delighted today as this disastrous ODI series will finally come to an end and they can move on to concentrate on Tests. 2014 has been terrifying for Pakistan. They are desperate for a win; and now there is nothing to lose other than pride, it is expected that Pakistan give their 100% in today’s match. However, Australia is not going to take it easy, they will be looking a white wash. A win for Aussies in the final match will push them to no.1 spot in the ODI rankings.

There will be changes in both the teams as the series is already decided. Australia will love to experiment. Sean Abott may come in place of Xavier Doherty.  Australia will figure out the fitness levels of Shane Watson and Mitchell Starc and get them into the playing eleven for the final match.  Pakistan, who was already pushed back by the absence of Saeed Ajmal, Mohammed Hafeez and Junaid Khan, will look to give Anwar Ali a chance to bat at the top.

Teams:

Australia XI: Finch, Warner, Hughes, Smith, Bailey, Maxwell, Faulkner, Haddin, Starc, Richardson, Lyon

Pakistan XI: Sehhzas, Sarfraz, Shafiq, Maqsod, Umar Amin, Fawad, Afridi, Anwar Ali, Tanvir, Zulfiqar, Irfan
