Ashton Agar became the second Australia player to test positive for Covid-19 in 24 hours and was ruled out of the entire ODI series against Men in Green in Lahore. Steve Smith was also ruled out of the series with an elbow issue.

Pakistan Team News- Shadab Khan May Play In The T20I If Fit
Pakistan limited-overs vice-captain Shadab Khan has not yet fully recovered from the fitness issues and the leg-spinner didn’t participate in the ODIs against Australia. According to sources, the 23-year-old has gotten rid of the groin injury to a great extent but has not been able to get the match fitness. Team management is reluctant to field Shadab Khan as it can cause more trouble to his injury.
Selectors have not included Abdullah Shafique, Imam-Ul-Haq, and Saud Shakeel in the squad for a one-off T20I against Australia. Pakistan could offer debuts to two new players after Asif Afridi and Mohammad Haris were named in the squads for the upcoming white-ball series against Australia.
