Pakistan all set to face a stiff challenge against Australia

Pakistan's last day in the outfield was a success and the win came against the hosts England.

They would not want to change the winning combination but in front of the Aussies, playing an extra spinner would be a temptation. The only possible change could be that of bringing in Imad Wasim in place of Asif Ali, but even that is unlikely to happen.

Mitchell Marsh called in as the replacement cover

Marcus Stoinis' injury will give some headaches to the Australian captain Aaron Finch. According to the Cricbuzz report, Mitchell Marsh has been flown to England as a replacement cover of Stoinis.

In this situation, Australia could add one batsman in the form of Shaun Marsh or just add another pacer to the line-up.

Jason Behrendorff seems like the most obvious option. Adam Zampa could be dropped after an awful day against India while Nathan Coulter-Nile could be just saved due to the injury to Stoinis.

The pitch in Taunton has been known for being great for batting in the domestic matches, but in the only match on this ground earlier in the tournament, the pitch had favoured the swing bowlers. Considering that and the overcast conditions, it seems having good swing bowlers would be a better option.
