Captains at the toss

Aaron Finch: Would've bowled first too. A tinge of green and a few moisture within the wicket. In an international cup, winning so many against Pakistan doesn't in point of fact subject a lot. We have to attend and spot what the wicket performs like. I be expecting some swing and seam-movement. It depends on the sport. India bowled in point of fact well to us as, as did Afghanistan. Marcus Stoinis is out with a side-strain, Shaun Marsh is available in for him, and Kane Richardson is available in for Adam Zampa.

Sarfaraz Ahmed: We are going to bowl first lately. There's somewhat of grass and moisture at the pitch, so we wish to make the most of that. Unfortunately we couldn't play the closing recreation, however we practised laborious in the previous few days so the momentum could be very high for us. Shadab Khan will sit out lately and Shaheen Afridi comes back in for us. One of our Test umpires (Riazuddin) has passed away, and in honour of him, we are all going to wear black bands lately.

Team news: One exchange in Pakistan enjoying XI. Shadab Khan sits out and Shaheen Afridi makes a comes back. Australia have two changes. Marcus Stoinis is out with a side-strain, Shaun Marsh replaces him. Kane Richardson comes rather than Adam Zampa.

Toss news: Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed calls it right at the toss, opts to field first against Australia.
