Pakistan bring in Shaheen, Usman; Australia unchanged in dress rehearsal | Cricket Bats | Australia

Toss Australia chose to bowl v Pakistan

Australia’s captain Aaron Finch won the toss and chose to send Pakistan in to bat in the fifth match of the triangular series at the Harare Sports Club.

Both sides have already qualified for Sunday’s tournament final, making this game an effective dress rehearsal. Australia kept the same side that delivered comfortable wins over Pakistan and Zimbabwe, to be the first team to reach the decider.

Pakistan included the youthful Shaheen Afridi for his second T20I in place of Hasan Ali, while Usman Khan came in for Mohammad Nawaz.

Australia: 1 Aaron Finch (capt), 2 D’Arcy Short, 3 Travis Head, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 Nic Maddinson, 6 Marcus Stoinis, 7 Alex Carey (wk), 8 Ashton Agar, 9 Andrew Tye, 10 Jhye Richardson, 11 Billy Stanlake
