Pakistan would be feeling confident after the famous win at MCG last Sunday, they would look to build on the performance they showed in first two ODIs and win a series here in Australia.
Green Shirts have bowled well in the first two ODIs, especially their fast bowlers have provided early breakthroughs to spinners helping them to make further inroads.
The left-armers Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan should enjoy the pace and bounce on offer, provided they find the right length for the conditions. Equally intriguing will be whether the stand-in captain Mohammad Hafeez can utilise his spin bowlers on a surface not likely to be as sluggish as the MCG was.
