It is expected that Azam Khan will return to the side in place of Sahibzada Farhan, who struggled in the last game, particularly in the batting department.

It is also anticipated that Babar Azam will return as an opener alongside Mohammad Rizwan. Both have been consistent openers over the years, while Saim Ayub is slated to come in at number 3.

The bowling attack is expected to remain the same, with skipper Shaheen leading the attack alongside fast bowlers Haris Rauf, Zaman Khan, and Wasim Jr. Additionally, they will be supported by spinner Mohammad Nawaz.
