I feel confident about my role in the Australian team: Adam Zampa

If Australia's selectors have ceased to, in the words of the chairman Trevor Hohns, "bury our heads in the sand" about the need to use spin bowling more effectively in the ODI team for this year's World Cup, then Adam Zampa is still wary of being discarded as he seeks to rebuild confidence shaken by his on again/off again recent history with the national team.

Haris, who reached 1,000 runs in his 27th one-day global when on 40, added 98 for the third wicket with Umar Akmal who made 50-ball 49 in his first worldwide match for two years.

Kuldeep picked number 1 ranked England as one of the contenders and said that playing in home conditions will be favourable for them.

After a historic ODI series win over India, Australia are all set to face Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). "I guess taking it one series at a time - it's a bit of a cliché, but that's how it is", he said.

Finch hopes his team keeps improving. The series will start on March 22 in Sharjah and the Green Shirts are fully prepared for the challenge. "There are seven teams that can seriously win it", he was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Six players from the squad that lost 2-3 to South Africa earlier this year have been rested, including skipper Sarfraz Ahmed.

The 26-year-old has said that the team is wary of what Pakistan can do and they are not taking them lightly. "So I think England and Pakistan will be the ones to watch out for". "They are a highly skilled and talented team and so we are definitely giving them as much respect as what we gave India", said the Australian captain. We can not take them lightly in any form of the game at any time.

The remaining matches are in Sharjah (March 24), Abu Dhabi (March 27) and Dubai (March 29 and 31).
