Australia won the toss and elected to field for the 5th match, Zimbabwe Twenty20 Tri-Series at Harare.
Both sides have already qualified for Sunday's tournament final, making this game an effective dress rehearsal. Australia kept the same side that delivered comfortable wins over Pakistan and Zimbabwe, to be the first team to reach the decider.
Pakistan included the youthful Shaheen Afridi for his second T20I in place of Hasan Ali, while Usman Khan came in for Mohammad Nawaz.
