Losing the first game by 66 runs after getting bowled out for 89, Australia is eyeing a strong comeback when both the teams will meet for the second T20I on Friday night.
Put into bat first, Pakistan posted 155 at the loss of 8 wickets, courtesy Babar Azam’s unbeaten 68. Billy Stanlake and Andrew Tye were the key bowlers for the visitors as both took three wickets apiece.
In response, Australia lost both the openers – Aaron Finch and D Arcy Short in the first over. At one time, Australia were six down at just 22 runs and cruising towards their lowest score in T20Is. However, Ashton Agar (19 of 23) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (34 of 29) helped visitors to reach 89, their third-lowest total in the shortest format of the game. From Pakistan, Imad Wasim (4-20-3) was the game changer. Shaheen Afridi and Faheem Ashraf bagged two wickets each.
Skipper Aaron Finch who described the batting awful later in the post-match ceremony has indicated towards a couple of changes. As per him, the bowlers did a good job and it was the batting which was disappointing.
While Pakistan would be eyeing another win to seal the series, Australia needs to win this match to stay alive in the contest. The visitors have failed to secure a single win in their entire tour so far including the practice match. The four-day practice match and the first test ended in a draw while Pakistan has won the second test and 1st T20I one-sidedly.
