David Warner

David Warner made 154 runs in the previous Test against Pakistan and gave his team a consolidated base of winning the match. Warner had a disastrous Ashes 2019 where he managed to score only one fifty from 10 innings. It was a crucial century for Warner as he was struggling to get back in form in Test. Pakistan will have to dismiss him early, if they want the game to slip away from them.

Babar Azam

The right-handed Pakistan Cricket Team batsman Babar Azam scored a century in the previous Test and has been in good touch since past few days. He also scored a century in the practice-game prior to this on-going Test Series. If he gets good support from other Pakistan batsmen, then they can dominate Aussie bowling attack easily. In the previous match, he was well supported by Mohammad Rizwan who made 95 runs.

Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc rattled up Pakistan Cricket Team top-order batting line-up and played a major role in putting the visitor at backfoot. Starc had figures of 4/52 and 3/73 in the 1st and 2nd inning respectively. Pakistan batsmen will have to come out with some strategy to play safely against Starc and avoid losing early wickets.

Marnus Labuschagne

The South African origin 25 years old all-rounder of Australian Cricket Team played a blistering knock of 185 runs to take the game beyond the reach of Pakistan. This was Labuschagne maiden Test hundred as he has made 748 runs from 10 matches. Marnus Labuschagne is indeed one of the players to watch out for in the upcoming Test match.

Shaheen Afridi

Though Shaheen Afridi managed to pick only two wickets in the previous Test match, but he can't be written off. The left-arm pacer has the capability to rattle up Australian batting line-up. Pakistan fans will want him to put up a brilliant performance in the upcoming Test, as his role will play a major role in the victory against Aussies.

Pakistan definitely did not start off well in ICC World Test Championship 2019-21, on the other hand, Australia with this win has now moved up to the second position in the point table with 116 points. Tim Paine and his men will look forward to defeating Pakistan in the 2nd Test match and reach near India who currently leads the table with 360 points.
