Australia, Pakistan and Zimbabwe teams will also compete to reach the top of the T20 with the title along with the title when they meet in the T20 Tri Series starting tomorrow. Pakistan has reached number one ranking in this series but if the Aussies leave behind their humiliating display of the England tour and perform well here, then they can reach the top in the rankings. On the tour of England, Australia had to face 0-5 and T20 0-1 in ODIs. Australia reached third place in the rankings due to a defeat in the only T20 on tour.
Before reaching Zimbabwe, team coach Justin Langer expressed the hope that the team’s performance would improve. He said, “The ray of hope is looking. Apart from the challenge of Pakistan and Zimbabwe, Australia must also overcome their problems.
Steve Smith and David Warner, who was found guilty in the ball tampering case, are out of the team due to suspension while Mitchell Starc, Jose Hedgelwood, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Marsh are recovering from injury.
Pakistan’s team is a fantastic form in the T20 format. This year the team has won seven out of eight matches. To continue this goal, Pakistan has sent a strong team here. He has also included fast bowler Mohammad Aamir in the team. Under the circumstances, the role of 19-year-old leg-spinner Shadab Khan will be crucial in spinners.
Although Zimbabwe has its problems, many senior players are not on the team due to the salary dispute between the board and the players. There is a possibility of becoming the new captain of the young batsman Tariasai Musakand’s team. The challenge will be to create a young team for the new coach Lalchand Rajput. He said, “Honestly, I see only those players who are available and we have chosen the best 15 to 17 players out there.
