Pakistan vs Australia Highlights 2023, Tuesday 3-10, ICC Cricket World Cup Warm-up Matches, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad.
“Looks like a good wicket,” says Cummins. “Good chance for a couple of our batters to spend some time in the middle. Having 50 overs, bowlers can only bowl 10 overs, brings some challenges.”
“He is okay but Babar wanted a rest,” says Shadab Khan, who captains Pakistan today. “Babar and Rizwan are resting but I am the captain and will make him [Babar] work hard [laughs]. We lost the last game but would want to win today, winning is a habit.”
Toss: Australia opt to bat.
