Unlike the Aussies, Pakistan is going through some revolutionary changes such a the exclusion of their former Captain Sarfaraz Ahmed. now the team will be driven by the youngbloods. Thus Azhar Ali and Babar Azam are assigned as the skippers for the team for the 2 formats.
Whereas Australia had a compelling game in their previous T20 and Test series. Let's see if Pakistan's emerging talent can manage to make it difficult for the Aussies or the host dominates again.

Kangaroos playing at home is an indication of the shire dominance. In the last 9 T20I matches played by the Aussies at home, they got subdues only 2 times.
Australia is compiled with the ace performers at every department in theT20 Format weather its top order batsmen Chris Lynn, Wicket taker bowler Ben Dwarshuis or a reliable middle-order batsman like Ben Dwarshuis.
Whereas as this fast pace pitch is going to help Pakistan a lot, Babar has also mentioned their bowling as the key factor for this series. Though Pakistan has a flourishing record in T20 format, in the last 12 months out of their 10 T20 matches, Pakistan has lost 6 of them.
Babar Azam and F Zaman are strong batsmen but they could lose their cool in the T20 matches as well.
Australia's balanced team will be having an upper hand in the T20 matches over Pakistan.
