ABOUT THE MATCH

If Pakistan outplayed Australia in the Test series, they completely destroyed them in the opening T20I. After the first match was held in Abu Dhabi, the action now moves to Dubai where the next two T20Is will be played.

Match Preview

Pakistan have now won their last 3 T20Is against Australia. Head to head: Of the 18 matches played, Pakistan have won 11 while Australia have 7 wins.

iconPakistan Team News

Pakistan showed why they are the No. 1 T20I side with a 66-run destruction of Australia. Babar Azam led the charge with an unbeaten 68 but he will expect more from his teammates who were guilty of letting go after a powerful start. The likes of Fakhar Zaman and Sarfraz Ahmed will hope to put on a better show in the second match.

Their bowling was absolutely scintillating. Imad Wasim in his comeback match destroyed Australia with 3 wickets. Everyone bowled well and they will hope for more of the same in the second match. Shoaib Malik who missed the first match will be available for this one which means either Faheem Ashraf or Shadab Khan could be dropped.

iconAustralia Team News

Australia will be in desperate need of some runs. 8 of their batsmen were dismissed in single digits and they were struggling at 22/6 at one point. Only a late charge by Nathan Coulter Nile saved them from further embarrassment. The likes of Aaron Finch, D’Arcy Short and Glenn Maxwell really need to step up.

Despite a poor start, the Australian bowling did well to reduce Pakistan from 105/1 to 133/8. But they will want to make an impact earlier in the next match.

Pitch Conditions

 

Being another night match, dew will continue to play a factor. The heat will not affect the sides too much but humidity sure will. The Dubai pitch will have more runs on offer than the one in Abu Dhabi.
