Third #PakvNz T20 of the five match series is scheduled to be played today in Lahore. Mohd. Rizwan who sustained a minor injury during the second game of the series is likely to be rested. For now, Pakistan leads the series 2-nil.
#PakvNz: #BabarAzam Might Rest Mohd. Rizwan
Skipper #BabarAzam while explaining the extent of Pakistan’s white ball wicket-keeper batter’s injury after the second #PakvNz T20 explained that, “Rizwan is feeling better, perhaps a one-game rest for him and he will be back in the side.” Hence, there is a good probability of Mohd. Haris playing ahead of him.
Faheem Ashraf on the other hand hasn’t been too impressive particularly with the ball and so, Pakistan might as well replace him with spin-bowling all-rounder Mohd. Nawaz. Moreover, the green shirts might as well employ rotation policy and play Ihsanullah ahead of one the pacers.
Pakistan’s Likely Playing XI
Babar Azam (c), Mohd. Haris, Fakhar Zaman, Saim Ayub, Imad Wasim, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan (vc), Mohd. Nawaz, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan/Ihsanullah.
Pakistani Players To Watch out For
Imad Wasim has been impressive with the ball however, he is yet to deliver with the bat in the series and so, we can all expect him to give it his all during the game today. Moreover, Shaheen Afridi too hasn’t been in top form during the series so far and therefore, it is expected that the left-arm pacer would be hungry to register a big performance. It is worth mentioning here that both players made their international comeback during the ongoing series.
