Pakistan has announced two major changes in playing XI for the ongoing Pakistan vs. Australia test series. The left-handed batter, Saim Ayub, will advent by replacing Imam Ul Haq as an opener. Imam was under criticism due to his slow cricket, as he scored only 94 runs in the last four innings at a strike rate of 31.
However, spinner Sajid Khan will be playing by replacing pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi, who will be resting for the final test as the pitch is slightly favorable for spinners.
