Babar Azam is the highest run scorer in the tournament and is our recommendation for Pakistan’s top run scorer in this crucial game. With the ball, Haris Rauf has 8 wickets in the competition and is our tip for Pakistan’s top wicket taker against Australia.
Opener David Warner made 89 not-out against West Indies in the last group game and is a strong choice for Australia’s highest run scorer against Pakistan. Leg-spinner Adam Zampa has 11 wickets at 9.90 in the tournament. He is well worth backing as Australia’s top wicket taker in this match.
All parts of the Pakistan team have worked very well during the tournament but it has been their opening batters who have really stood out. Babar Azam is our prediction for the Player of The Match Award.

The only change we have seen throughout the tournament for Australia has been Ashton Agar coming in for Mitchell Marsh to provide greater bowling options. However, we expect to see Marsh given the nod in this match alongside the same XI from their big win over West Indies.
AUS Key Players
David Warner - The aggressive opener showed that there is still plenty of runs left in him with his 89 not-out against West Indies on Saturday.
Adam Zampa - The leg-spinner is the joint highest wicket taker in the tournament of players who only played in the Super 12s.
Josh Hazlewood - The tall, metronomic bowler has become a valuable IT20 bowler and took 4-39 in the victory over West Indies.
