David Warner: "I think I left a few out there to be honest, and getting out with 70 balls to go was disappointing for me. 140-0 was good as an opening partnership, but Amir bowled really well, especially coming here and bowling a Test line and length was very brave and he got his rewards for it. There was a leak here about a week ago, but that's out of our control. We were a bit too short early in the previous games according to the pitchmaps, so we need to make them drive early on. We have to respect the opposition and bowl well."

Captains on the toss

Aaron Finch: Would've bowled first too. A tinge of inexperienced and a few moisture within the wicket. In a global cup, winning so many in opposition to Pakistan does not truly matter a lot. We have to attend and notice what the wicket plays like. I expect some swing and seam-movement. It is dependent upon the game. India bowled truly effectively to us as, as did Afghanistan. Marcus Stoinis is out with a side-strain, Shaun Marsh comes in for him, and Kane Richardson comes in for Adam Zampa.

Sarfaraz Ahmed: We are going to bowl first today. There's just a little of grass and moisture on the pitch, so we need to profit from that. Unfortunately we could not play the last game, however we practised arduous in the previous few days so the momentum is very high for us. Shadab Khan will take a seat out today and Shaheen Afridi comes again in for us. One of our Test umpires (Riazuddin) has passed away, and in honour of him, we're all going to put on black bands today.

Team information: One trade in Pakistan playing XI. Shadab Khan sits out and Shaheen Afridi makes a comes again. Australia have two changes. Marcus Stoinis is out with a side-strain, Shaun Marsh replaces him. Kane Richardson comes rather than Adam Zampa.

Toss information: Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed calls it right on the toss, opts to box first in opposition to Australia.
