The selection of the Pakistan team for the three-match ODI series against Australia hasn’t thrown a lot of surprises. Yes, this holds true in spite of the fact that Younis Khan and Umar Gul, two seniormost members of the team, have been axed.
Pakistan have made as many as five changes to their ODI Squad which will play against Australia in a 3-match series starting this month end in the UAE. Younis Khan, who struggled to get going in the ODI Series in Sri Lanka has been axed while fast bowler Umar Gul surprisingly has been omitted.
Australia has named the uncapped Glenn Maxwell in its squads to face Pakistan in next month Series in the UAE. The 23-year-old Glenn Maxwell is an all-rounder, who strikes the ball very hard and chips in with handy off-breaks.
