Time: 2:00 p.m. IST
Australia will face Pakistan in the third T20I of the three-match series in Perth on Friday. The home side are leading the series with a 1-0 margin with just one game to play after registering a comfortable seven-wicket win in the second match on Tuesday in Canberra whereas the first match was washed out.
The weather is expected to be good with no chance of rain expected to effect the match.
This will be the first T20I to be played at the Optus Stadium in Perth where the pitch proved to be a little two-paced during the two ODIs played at the venue in the past.
Probable Playing XI:
There is one change expected in the home side's playing XI with pacer Pat Cummins is being rested for third T20I. In the batting department, the Australians will be depending on the likes of explosive opener David Warner, captain Aaron Finch and in-form Steve Smith to score bulk of the runs, whereas in the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa to produce timely breakthroughs.
