They fill in for both Khurram Shahzad, who was hurt, and Faheem Ashraf, who was fired. It means that the experienced Shaheen Shah Afridi will lead an all-speed attack, and the impressive rookie Aamer Jamal will also be in charge. There will be no room for a specialist spinner. For the past few years, the bowling side has done well on the MCG pitch, and there has been some bad weather, Masood said when asked why he chose to field.

After it rained a lot on Christmas Day, the weather was clear on Tuesday, though it’s supposed to rain again in the afternoon. Pat Cummins, the captain of Australia, said that he would have bowled too. “After Perth, we all pulled up really well.” “We’re lucky that everything is going well for everyone,” he said to explain why the team didn’t change anything. Pakistan hasn’t done well in Australia. They’ve lost 15 straight Tests there, and their last win was in 1995.
