High scoring is possible at the Gabba – in the two most recent ODIs there, targets of 300-plus were successfully chased down. However, if the conditions suit, the ball can also swing around a lot – in 2013, Australia were rolled for 74 by Nuwan Kulasekara and the Sri Lankans in a Brisbane ODI. The forecast for Friday is for a hot day and a top of 34C.
Mohammad Hafeez was a late addition to the squad and could be rushed in for the first game. With Sarfraz unavailable, Mohammad Rizwan is expected to take the gloves. The make-up of Pakistan’s attack is uncertain, though it is likely only one of Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz will play. Steven Smith confirmed Australia’s XI on the eve of the match, with Head named to open alongside Warner, and Lynn and Stanlake set to debut. Legspinner Adam Zampa and batsman Usman Khawaja miss out.

Pakistan’s this tour was not good for test matches because they have lost all three of them but in Warm-Up match Pakistan’s one day international playing xi showed the aggression, consistency and class. Pakistanis batted first and scored 334 runs in tour match and won by 196 runs it means Pakistani bowlers also done excellent job and we can say that it was a whole team effort which we had not seen in test matches.
Hasan Ali new youngster from Pakistan team is doing much better, he took three wickets in his last match, Imad Wasim and Shoaib Malik took two wickets each of them, rest of the bowlers took one wicket each of them. Today we will watch that Pakistan ODI team will remain in their dangerous form or not? If Pakistan bat first then they should score 350 plus or they bowl first then they should stop Australia under 300.
