PAK vs AUS Dream11 Prediction: The third and final Test between Pakistan and Australia will be played in Lahore from March 21. The first Test in Rawalpindi and the second Test in Karachi have ended in a draw and the three-match series remains 0-0.
The Karachi surface was better than that in the first Test in Rawalpindi and both teams would be hoping for a much better wicket in Lahore’s Gadaffi Stadium. The series has so far been dominated by the batsmen due to the flat pitches in both games.
The visitors have named an unchanged XI for the final Test which means Josh Hazlewood would again be sitting out. The hosts, on the other hand, would be happy with the performances of their batters in the second Test, especially with skipper Babar Azam hitting a career-best 196 and vice-captain Mohammad Rizwan 104 not out in the 4th innings. Moreover, both teams will be aiming to deliver a final match-winning performance to clinch the series in the deciding Test.
