Usama Mir Replaces Shadab Khan as Pakistan Chooses to Field

Usama Mir Replaces Shadab Khan: Pakistan's Bold Fielding Choice!

Match 18: Pakistan Wins Toss, Elects to Field Against Australia

In the cricketing city of Bengaluru, Babar Azam, the captain of the Pakistan cricket team, won the toss and decided to field first. The team saw a change in its lineup with leg-spinner Usama Mir replacing Shadab Khan.

On the other hand, Australia stuck to their winning combination from Lucknow, making no changes to their playing XI.

Pat Cummins-led Australian team, fresh from their victory in Lucknow, faces a crucial match against Pakistan. A defeat here could severely dent their chances of advancing to the knockout stages.

Meanwhile, the Men in Green are eager to bounce back from their disappointing performance in Ahmedabad and regain their winning momentum.

A victory in this match will catapult either team into the top four of the points table, making this a high-stakes encounter.

Teams Lineup:

Australia: Mitchell Marsh, David Warner, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Josh Inglis (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (c), Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.

Pakistan: Abdullah Shafique, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammed Rizwan (wk), Saud Shakeel, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Usama Mir.
