AUS vs PAK DREAM11 Prediction | Australia vs Pakistan 1st ODI | Who Will Win

Australia and Pakistan are scheduled to face each other in a 5-match ODI series which kick-starts from March 22 in Sharjah which would be hosting its 236th ODI. The World Cup preparations would be on the mind of the two teams which will make this series even more enthralling for sure.

Australia are coming into this series after an emphatic series triumph in India where they tamed the hosts 3-2 in a 5 match ODI series. This was their first ODI series win against India in India after 10 long years.

Pakistan, on the other hand, were taken down abruptly against South Africa in their last international tour as they were clean swept 5-0 in the ODI series. After a devastating show in South Africa, the selectors took some harsh decisions and have axed 6 players from that squad which also includes the skipper Sarfraz Ahmed. Shoaib Malik will be leading a newly built Pakistan line-up in Sarfraz’s absence which has some new faces among the old ones.

Talking about the team changes, Australia haven’t made any significant changes in their triumphant squad from India which means the good long wait for the banned duo of David Warner and Steve Smith continues.

Both teams will look for a winning start to gain early momentum in the series, and with Australia having some sort of confidence after taming India in their last outing, they surely hold the upper hand going into this encounter.
