Babar Azam Stats in ODI
To be honest, words are falling short of describing Babar Azam. The greats step up for their team when it is needed and Babar is one of those players. His inning was also record-breaking, as he became the quickest to 15 centuries in terms of innings played (83).

Imam-ul-Haq Stats in ODI
The other centurion from Pakistan’s lineup, Imam-ul-Haq has been the star with the bat this series. He has scored back to back centuries in this series and his score of 106 also gave him a unique record. He has taken the least number of innings (48) by a batter to score 9 centuries.
|48||2232||51.91||10/9||0, 1, 56, 103, 106|
Shaheen Afridi Stats in ODI
We mentioned stepping up, and Pakistan’s fast bowling jewel, Shaheen Afridi did just that with the ball. The left-arm quick dismantled the Aussie middle-order ensuring the score wasn’t out of hand for the Pakistani batting order. It was his fourth 4-wicket haul in 29 games.

Ben McDermott Stats in ODI
The Brisbane native has only played 4 ODIs so far but looks to have a calm head on his shoulders. He can bat anywhere in the lineup and that makes him a big asset for this side. His first century puts him in good stead to keep his place in the squad even when the big guns return.
|4||187||46.75||1/1||28, 0, 55, 104|
Adam Zampa Stats in ODI
While the Aussie bowling looked lacklustre, Adam Zampa put in a fine stint yet again. Conceding just 71 runs as a wrist spinner on a batting-friendly wicket and also picking up 2 wickets shows why he’s so highly rated in the international circuit.
|66||103||31.3||5.52||1/39, 2/43, 2/29, 4/38, 2/71|
Aaron Finch Stats in ODI
Aaron Finch hasn’t found his form with the bat. He is a player who can score big out of nowhere, however. For the Australians to take home the series, Aaron Finch will have to come good. His 5255 runs at a strike rate of 88.25 just show how important he is to this lineup. He has 3 fifty-plus scores in his last 5 games.
|134||5255||41.38||29/17||114, 60, 75, 23, 0|
According to the Pakistan vs Australia today match prediction, Australia are the favourites to win this match.
