Analysis

Among the wicketkeepers, Mohammad Rizwan should be the obvious pick considering he will be coming on the back of scoring a match-saving century in previous Test. Babar Azam was mesmerizing in Karachi and is also a potential pick for captain/vice-captain as he is in the form of his life. Meanwhile, Usman Khawaja has scored 301 runs in the series so far and is another must addition in your fantasy side.

Marnus Labuschagne has looked solid in the series and a big knock from his bat might finally come in Lahore. Talking about bowlers, the spin duo of Nauman Ali and Nathan Lyon are the leading wicket-takers with 7 and 6 scalps, respectively. They are expected to be among the wickets in the series decider as well. Pat Cummins and Shaheen Afridi are two pacers who could also make an impact.

Pakistan: Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam (c), Fawad Alam, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Faheem Ashraf, Hasan Ali, Sajid Khan, Nauman Ali, Shaheen Afridi
