The Pakistani cricket team is determined to win the remaining two games of the series against Australia as the two sides meet in Friday’s fourth ODI in Dubai.
Australia won 3-0 in the five-game series following their identical wins with eight wins in the two games in Sharjah, before finishing third in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday with 80 runs.
Pakistani skipper Shoaib Malik said it was important to support the young players who were trying to claim their place in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 available from May 30 through July 14 in England and Wales is discharged.
“We’re trying to give all players a chance so that the selection committee and team management have a better picture,” said Malik. “Its international cricket, so every game is important. We have two more options. If we win two games, we have something in our pocket. “
Malik said batsmen were not on track in their pursuit of a 267 goal in Abu Dhabi.
“If you hunt, you have to keep the wickets and dive deep into the game, where you create opportunities, but we could not do that,” said Malik of Pakistan, who was dismissed at 44.4-overs for 186.
Malik praised the Australian bowlers. “The Australian bowlers lined and swung the ball around. If you give a good batsman some chances then you expect something big. Getting chances and seizing them is the key of the game, “said Malik, who scored 32 runs.
Imam-ul-Haq scored the best goal with 46, while Imad Wasim (43) and Umar Akmal (36) were the other batsmen who had good starts but did not help Pakistan chase the target.
Pakistan will probably try unopened opening player Abid Ali and one-drop batsman Saad Ali.
Australia strives to give right-handed batsman Ashton Turner a shot after brilliantly beating Mohali in the series against India.
Skipper Aaron Finch stressed the need to build the site further.
“We have well developed the basics. Any time you can beat India and Pakistan in their domestic conditions is good, “said Finch. “We play spin much better than before and that’s an improvement.
“Handscomb played a good innings before being knocked over by a good ball. Partnerships do not allow the opposition to get to the top. That’s an improvement. Maxwell and Handscomb both played great thrusts. As captain, it is very difficult to give such types fields. “
The last game will be on Sunday in Dubai.
