AUS vs PAK Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match

Abu Dhabi, October 16 at 11:30 AM IST

Dubai Test was a great advert for Test cricket, a format gasping for survival. With the drawn first Test and series level at 0-0, Pakistan and Australia will battle out in the decider at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.

Usman Khawaja, a man labelled as one who cannot succeed in Asia, batted for 524 minutes in the fourth innings on Day 4 and 5 to deny Pakistan a win. That is what new-look Australia needed, something out of the ordinary to lift their spirits.

On the other hand, Pakistan would be kicking themselves for letting the chance go, in favourable conditions and after three days of domination. They would want to play a more aggressive brand of cricket here and put the visiting side under pressure.

Pitch conditions: From the first look of the wicket, it has a green tinge but it could be a mirage as Mitchell Starc described it.

AUS vs PAK Dream11 Team

Wicket-keeper: There is little to separate two wicket-keepers, Sarfraz Ahmed or Tim Paine. The latter showed a better application with the bat in the first Test.

Batsmen: Australia’s Usman Khawaja answered his critics with big runs in both the innings of the first Test. Haris Sohail, Asad Shafiq and Aaron Finch were other batsmen who came good.

Quick Tip: Avoid more Australian batsmen as they may struggle against Pakistan’s spinners.

All-rounders: Mohammad Hafeez scored a fantastic ton his comeback to the Test side.

Bowlers: Debutant Bilal Asif and Mohammad Abbas were the two best bowlers in the first Test. Yasir Shah and Nathan Lyon did not bag as many wickets as expected but can come into play here.
