Just after Pakistan Super League edition 4, Pakistan is all set to play Australia in the United Arab Emirates for the 5 ODIs. Pakistan earlier named their squad for the tour and gave rest to half of the squad which featured against South Africa.
Pakistan called a lot of youngsters in the squad in order to bring out the best option for the ICC World Cup 2019. Pakistan included debutant Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Amir, Junaid Khan, Usman Khan Shinwari, and Faheem Ashraf as their fast bowling options.
With Hassan Ali and Shaheen Shah Afridi rested, Pakistan has to figure out the combination of 3 seamers which will play in the World Cup along with Faheem Ashraf who might be the 4th seam option for Pakistan.
Mohammad Hasnain has got brute pace to surprise the batsman but can he prove himself against Australia that will be the question mark. Mohammad Amir with his experience will have strong chances to make it to the playing XI. There will be a contest between Junaid Khan, Usman Khan Shinwari, and Mohammad Abbas.
Pakistan has to look among Junaid Khan's experience in ODIs, Mohammad Abbas' accuracy and Usman Khan Shinwari's pace. Australia series and England tour just prior to World Cup will help Pakistan to figure out the best combination at their disposal.
