Pakistan are all set to restart in the shorter version of cricket against Australia in Sydney after disaster against Sri Lanka in their own backyard. On the other hand Australia, who are looking more than dangerous right from the start of the series, coincidentally knocked down the same team.
Pakistan star batsman Babar Azam will lead his national side for the first time ever as they discarded Sarfaraz Ahmed from the team citing his poor run of form with bat. Babar has been leading his side with bat for ages now and all set to take the charge on the field tomorrow.
The No. 1 T20I team has landed in Australia with a few new faces. Team management won’t take too many risks together and they will bench them for the starter at least. They will send their best bowlers against the mighty David Warner, who has been dismissed by Maling’s XI in a three-match series that concluded on Friday.
Pakistan have only played one T20 International way back in 2010 in Australia which they lost by two runs at the MCG. Mohammad Irfan has not played for his national side in three and a half year.
Australia have lost their T20I specialist Andrew Tye for four months due to elbow surgery. They are finally giving their seniors full chance to make a best team for next year’s Home Men’s T20I World Cup. Aaron Finch’s team are likely to play its best bowling unit of Mitchell Starc, Patrick Cummins, Kane Richardson and with Adam Zampa’s leggies.
Aaron Finch and his team have won last five successive T20Is and if they manage to win this game against Pakistan on Sunday, it would equal their best run in this format of six in a row.
