Imam-ul-Haq, a member of the home team Pakistan, has amassed the most runs thus far with two centuries in two games. The batting effort of TM Head, who scored 190 runs in just two innings, is also outstanding. In the most recent ODI, Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam displayed his true batting prowess by smashing 114 runs off just 83 deliveries. With six wickets left, the Pakistani squad completed the 350 run target in 49 overs. It was the highest ODI chase in Pakistani cricket history.
Pakistan vs Australia 3rd ODI Highlights 2 April 2022
The pitches are definitely batting-friendly, but there is a little early swing available for seamers. A Zampa, though, is performing horribly; in the first two ODIs, he claimed six wickets. Despite not being available for the first ODI, Shaheen Shah Afridi managed to dismiss four Australian batters in the second game. In 20 overs, Zahid Mahmood conceded 130 runs while also picking up three wickets.
Since both sides gave their all in the first two games, there is no clear favourite at this point. Here’s a tiny tip: both teams’ bowlers’ line and length can be the difference between winning and losing in this match. Whichever team’s bowlers can maintain composure will have more players.
