    Pakistan vs Australia | 5th ODI | Dubai | Mar 31, 2019 | Australia Innings

    Australia havenít swept a bilateral ODI series 5-0 since 2013, when they hosted West Indies, but they are well-placed to do so again when they meet Pakistan in the final one-day international in Dubai on Sunday, 31 March.

    Overview

    Pakistan v Australia
    5th ODI
    Dubai International Cricket Stadium
    Sunday, 31 March; 15:00 hrs local, 11:00am GMT

    Pakistanís idea behind resting their seniors for this ODI series was to test their bench strength ahead of the ICC Menís Cricket World Cup 2019. After four successive defeats, itís apparent that the bench isnít exactly brimming with vitality.

    Pakistan are two completely different sides in the two shorter formats. They are ranked world No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC T20I Rankings, have a superlative record across conditions, and have a host of players who step up and get the job done. In ODIs, they are ranked No.6, have always blown hot and cold, and are unable to match the frenetic pace that the modern-day game demands.

    Even by those standards, though, this series has been lopsided. It just isnít characteristic of Pakistan to go down without a fight at home. They came the closest to picking up a win on Friday, with Abid Ali and Mohammad Rizwan making centuries, but still ended up falling six runs short of a 278-run target, having suffered a late meltdown.

    Pakistan have had their share of centuries this series, but they have been isolated bright spots. Barring the third ODI, theyíve had at least one century in each of the other games. Their bowling has become more incisive as the series has progressed, but they have still not been able to hold Australia back from posting competitive totals.

    Australia, meanwhile, are as well-balanced as they have been in recent memory. Their top order is prolific. Various members of their middle order are taking turns to prove their worth ahead of the World Cup. And their bowlers have held their own in the absence of the two senior pacemen, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood. A 5-0 sweep is a very real possibility.

    Australia haven't felt Mitchell Starc's absence much during the Pakistan ODIs Australia haven't felt Mitchell Starc's absence much during the Pakistan ODIs
    Key players

    Mohammad Rizwan (Pakistan): Rizwan is Pakistanís highest scorer this series, with two centuries. Heís made those runs in tough situations Ė the first century coming after Pakistan had been reduced to 35/2 and the second from 74/2 in a tough chase of 278.

    Aaron Finch has hit peak form ahead of the World Cup Aaron Finch has hit peak form ahead of the World Cup
    Aaron Finch (Australia): The Australia captain has hit peak form and looks unstoppable. This series has been quite the turnaround after a dismal start to the year. Nothing boosts a sideís confidence quite like a firing captain, which makes the return to form all the more crucial, ahead of a World Cup.

    Conditions

    Totals of 250-plus should be par for the course in Dubai. The ground hasnít really favoured batting first or second. In the last four completed matches, the team batting first has won once, the chasing team has won twice, while one match was tied. Itís going to be a hot Sunday afternoon, with temperatures expected to be around 33℃ at the start.


    Squads

    Pakistan:Shan Masood, Imam-ul-Haq, Haris Sohail, Umar Akmal, Imad Wasim (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Yasir Shah, Usman Shinwari, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Amir, Saad Ali, Abid Ali

    Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Ashton Turner, Kane Richardson

    Amir needs to be tested in place of Yasir but no way they will drop Yasir especially after his 2 wickets last match and to provide him maximum chance to prove selectors right, which is unfortunate for team Pak going to world cup

    Lost all the remaining interest in the match with Hasnain out.

    I think the management is really out of their minds with this rotation stuff. We already know there is no way Abbas is a LOI bowler so why even bother. Same goes for Yasir. What are they expecting? Both of them to get fifers?

    Amir should have been included in place of Yasir. There was no need of dropping Mohammad Hasnain. The likes of Abbas will not serve any purpose in limited over format.

    Looks like Hasnain is out of WC contention. They should have given a chance to Rauf in this series instead of Abbas or Amir.

    With regards to the Azhar Mohmood's statement, they should fill those 2 places with Junaid and Shinwari. Shinwari is good against minnows where we can give rest to shaheen in order to balance his workload.

    I can bet that Mickey and co would take Amir and shinwari to the WC. Junaid would be sidelined as usual. They had already decided the squad and would stick to it.

    I would rather take Shinwari and Amir than, Junaid and Abbas. Junaid lost his pace and became a trundler lately, plus pitches in england will be dry and offer no swing unless its a cloudy day. June is going to be v hot and it will come down to who has a better batting line up and can pile up runs over 300 will win.

    I guess it's going to be like this in 15 squad

    Amir
    Shaheen
    Hasan
    junaid
    Shinwari
    Faheem


    Junaid/Shinwari/Faheem will play on rotational basis if Amir performs. Otherwise Faheem will be regular choice and Amir will join the list of bench strength in place of Faheem.

    Shaheen, Hasan and Faheem are pretty much confirmed. Only two others will be picked.

    I think the fast bowlers for world cup will be

    Amir
    Shinwari
    Hassan
    Shaheen and
    Junaid

    I really wanted husnain in the squad but i think he needs to learn a lot before playing in such a big tournament and there is no mentor in the team to guide him either.

    Faheem is a very difficult case for pakistan , he is somewhere between a bowler and all rounder. His batting is unreliable and more often than not he can not hit big. He needs to compete for a fast bowlers spot , is he better than the 5 others i have mentioned above?

    Imad wasim is better batsman than faheem and while isnt a good wicket taking option in odis but can keep the batsmen very quite in the middle overs. For me imad wasim wins his place in the side.

    Shadab and nawaz are the only two spinners in contention and i think shadab wins hands down , pakistan can pick both in case shadab gets injured during the tournament.

    Sarfraz and rizwan the keepers.

    Fakhar
    Imam
    Abid
    Babar
    Hafeez/haris (hafeez the first choice)
    Asif ali

    Roy and Bairstow will make mincemeat of Abbas in Trent Bridge. He is definitely not going to the World Cup based on his awful performances in ODIs so far.

    Whether people like it or not, Amir will definitely be on the plane. It is down to Junaid vs Shinwari, and I am glad I am not the one to make that depressing choice.

    Hasnain wonít be picked either.

    I am still furious on Arthur how he was against Abid's selection in SA and it took Imam to get 'high fever' in 4th odi for Abid to get a chance otherwise he was not good enough to be in Arthur's X1. This is so poor!

    I don't see Abbas performing in tests after this humiliation. Mental barriers are difficult to get away with. Credit goes to our think tank.

    If only keeper could stand close to the stumps while he bowls, you would change 180 shift in his bowling

    It's always risky to open the bowling with two spinners.

    Junaid is a hack, but if the alternative is Abbas, I will have to pick him with a heavy heart.

    Pakistan look completely lost out there and not motivated for anything other than a warm up.

    Where are the slips? The fielding intensity? Bowling to a plan?

    Hopefully none of the three pacers playing todayís game make the final WC squad.

    Shaheen
    Hasan
    Amir
    Hasnain
    Faheem

    Those 5 will make the cut.

    Azhar Mehmood has turned all our bowlers like him, a slow medium pacer who concentrate on line and length rather than pace and swing.

    Sarfaraz, Arthur and Inzamam must be booted out after the World Cup. This trio has taken Pakistan to new lows in Test and ODI cricket.

    The fast bowling factory was destroyed when we started producing bowlers like Sami, Wahab, Cheema, Gul, and Rana

    One thing for sure. Aussies have found their lost in wilderness under Langer.

    Good to see a good Aussies side shaping up for the WC.

    Pakistan need to go with the following fast bowlers.

    Amir
    Hassan
    Shaheen
    musa/shinwari
    Fahim

    Should be booted before the world cup so we can have a half decent tournament

    Fans need to relax, when was the last time, any fast bowling unit dominated in UAE. Dont judge pak bowlers in UAE pitches please.

    Shinwari is leaps and bounds ahead of Junaid.
