Australia are being led by Tim Paine in this cricket series. They were fantastic in Brisbane where they beat Pakistan by an innings and five runs.

- Babar Azam

- Asad Shafiq
- Mohammad Rizwan
- Muhammad Musa
- Yasir Shah
- Shaheen Afridi

Expert Prediction: AUS vs PAK
Pakistan are going to get yet another shot at redemption in Australia. They are yet to win a cricket series in this part of the world and would like to do it on this occasion with a talented side. They have a new leader in Azhar Ali and a new coach in Misbah ul Haq, who has an experience of leading Pakistan recently in Australia.
Australia, meanwhile, proved that they are going to be extremely tough to beat at home. Their weak spots performed brilliantly in the first cricket test match at Brisbane. The likes of David Warner and Joe Burns did brilliantly at the top of the order. Warner hammered his first ton after coming back from the ball-tampering ban.
Both sides had some of the young men making their debuts in the first test match. While Naseem Shah made his debut in Brisbane, Muhammad Musa is getting his chance at Adelaide Oval. Our prediction guru reckons that it is going to be difficult for Pakistan to contend with Australian challenge in the second game as well. Pakistan need to do everything better than they did in the first cricket game to pose a challenge to this Australian side at home.
Toss prediction? – On day 1, Australia after winning the toss decided to bat first. The conditions were overcast but Australia backed themselves to still post a good total and then later attacked Pakistan with their strong bowling attack. Recent trend in test cricket has shown that teams do not respond too well to big scores and end up succumbing to its pressure. Hence, it is a wide decision by Australia.
