Even though the chances of rain are less in morning, light showers are expected in the afternoon that could result in interruptions.

As far as team combination is concerned, Australia face a challenge in replacing injured all-rounder Marcus Stoinis. After claiming two wickets in the match with India that Australia lost by 36 runs, Stoinis suffered a side strain to go out of contention for Pakistan encounter.

Middle-order batsman Shaun Marsh might make a cut if Australia wish to play an extra batsman in place of the all-rounder. However, Kane Richardson comes as another alternative in shape of a complete fast bowler and batting tail-ender.

Pakistan is expected to play an unchanged XI as the match against Sri Lanka was washed out without a ball being bowled in Bristol.

Australia: Aaron Finch (capt), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson/Shaun Marsh, Adam Zampa.
