DUBAI: With Shoaib Malik ruled out due to the elbow injury, all-rounder Imad Wasim will captain the Pakistan side in the fourth One-Day International game against Australia on Friday (today).
PCB sources have stated that left-handed batsman Saad Ali will be brought in the side in place of Shoaib Malik who suffered an injury during the third ODI.
Pakistan will take on Australia in the fourth match of the five-match ODI series at Dubai Cricket Stadium.
The match will start at 4:00 PM PST. The visitors have an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series as they defeated Pakistan in the third ODI by 80 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday to win the five-match series.
The visitors would be eyeing a series whitewash to keep up their winning momentum. On the other hand, Pakistan will definitely look for a win as it will boost up their momentum before going into the 2019 cricket World Cup in May this year.
