The versatility of Pakistan’s bowling attack and Australia’s fragilities with the bat was on full show in the first T20I.

After restricting Pakistan to a manageable 8-155 after the hosts looked set for a total in excess of 175, Australia’s top-order succumbed against Imad Wasim (3-20) to lose six wickets in the powerplay.

At 6-22, a sub-50 total looked imminent but Coulter-Nile (34) and Ashton Agar (19) took the tourists out of a precarious state before Shaheen Afridi (2-23) polished off the tail to script a 66-run win for Pakistan.

  • Pakistan have lost 23 of their 27 T20I since July 2016.
  • The Men in Green are unbeaten in their last six T20I in the UAE.
  • Australia have lost three T20I on the trot against Pakistan
  • Pakistan have won won their last nine T20I series.

The second match assumes importance for different reasons for both sides. While Pakistan will aim for their 10th successive series win while Australia will look to register their maiden win of the tour after losing the Test series 0-2 and the first T20.
