After losing their last match, Australia are expected to make a few changes to their side as suggested by Glenn Maxwell as well. Usman Khawaja's place is under threat and he might be replaced with stylish left-hander Shaun Marsh. Nathan Coulter-Nile was almost certain to lose his spot to Jason behrendorff but with the injury to Marcus Stoinis, he will now retain his place as an all-rounder. Adam Zampa might also get a couple more games to prove his worth.

Pakistan benched Imad Wasim and Haris Sohail after their first match for Shoaib Malik and Asif Ali, and after an exciting win against England, they will go with the same playing combination.

Aaron Finch and David Warner will continue to open the batting for Australia. Although Warner has two half-centuries against his name in the tournament, he has been a bit too slow for his liking and has got a lot of flak for that.

Steve Smith came out to bat at number three in the last match and is expected to do that more frequently, as revealed by Aaron Finch in the post-match press conference. This is the reason why Shaun Marsh might be considered in place of Khwaja to step up the run scoring.

All-round duties will be discharged by Glenn Maxwell and Coulter-Nile. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins have been effective till now and will be the key bowlers for Australia.

Pakistan have a solid top three in Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam, who have been further bolstered by the inclusion of Mohammad Hafeez and Shoaib Malik. The old warhorses Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz will lead Pakistan's bowling attack.

This is expected to be a cracker of an encounter with both teams having seemingly recovered from their lull phase and are back to being somewhere close to their best.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Australia- Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja/Shaun Marsh, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Jason Behrendorff, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

Pakistan- Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Mohammad Hafeez, Asif Ali, Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir
