Top picks for AUS vs PAK Dream11 Team Prediction
David Warner: He is in record-breaking form in this format and remained unbeaten throughout the series against Sri Lanka scoring 100*,60* and 57* runs in three matches and 20 runs in the last game.
Aaron Finch: Skipper Finch is a destructive batsman and can change the course of match single-handedly. He scored 64 and 37 runs in two games against Sri Lanka and also scored attacking 37* and 17 runs in the last two games.
Steve Smith: He scored unbeaten 80* runs in the last match and can be demoted in case of good start from openers. His recent form is brilliant.
Mitch Starc: Fiery pacer Starc is a wicket-taking option in limited-overs cricket and took four scalps in two matches against Sri Lanka and also struck twice in the first T20.
Ashton Agar: He is a talented spin all-rounder and took two scalps in the last match.
Adam Zampa: Leggie Zampa is a wicket-taking spinner and took three and two wicket-haul in two matches against Sri Lanka. However, He has failed to perform against Pakistan.
Kane Richardson: He is a lethal pace bowler and has a good skill set to perform in the T20I format. He took two scalps each in the first T20 but was a tad expensive in the last match.
Babar Azam: No.1 T20I batsmen Babar Azam was the top scorer of the recent T20 Blast but failed to impress in the home series against Sri Lanka. He scored a crucial knock of 59* and 50 runs in the last two matches and will be a must-pick in your fantasy team.
Imad Wasim: He can be a match-winner with the bat as well as the ball. In the World Cup, he played many good cameos with the bat. Moreover, he is also very economical with the ball and is second on the list of top T20I bowlers. He scored 11 runs and took one scalp in the last match.
Fakhar Zaman: A flamboyant opener Fakhar Zaman is a very attacking batsman but is in inferior form. He can be a risky pick for tomorrow’s encounter.
Haris Sohail: He is a technically strong batsman and played outstanding knocks in the World Cup in the middle order. He will have the responsibility to anchor the innings in the middle order but could score only 4 and 6 runs in two matches.
Mohammad Amir: He is a lethal pacer and can destroy any batting line-up on his day. His recent form is also good but can find it difficult to chip wickets of consistent Australian top-order. He took one scalp in the last encounter.
Iftikhar Ahmed: Iftikhar is a consistent performer in the domestic circuit. He is a good batsman and part-time spinner. He scored a crucial knock of 62* runs from just 34 balls in the last match.
Shadab Khan: He is a wicket-taking spinner and generally performs well with the ball. He can also be handy with the bat. He took three wicket-haul in practice match.
Mohammad Rizwan: He is a consistent performer and was one of the top scorers of the recent National T20 Cup in Pakistan. He scored 31 and 14 runs in two matches.
