Saad Ali’s debut, Pakistan decides to field vs. Australia
DUBAI: Pakistan won the toss and elected to field first in fourth one-day international (ODI) against Australia in Dubai.
Imad Wasim will be leading side after Shoaib Malik was ruled out of fourth ODI with a bruised rib. Only other change in the squad for Pakistan from third ODI is Saad Ali who will be making his debut today.
With a comfortable 80 run over Pakistan in third ODI, Australia now have an unassailable 3-0 lead in five-match ODI series.
For Pakistan, fourth ODI in Dubai today will be a face-saving game as they take on a resurgent Australia. Having crumbled to heavy losses in first three games, they would look to field players who haven’t had a chance to play in series so far.
The Pakistan side showed some improvements with ball, however, it was their batting that let them down as they suffered a series defeat.
