Looking forward to seal the series after a comprehensive seven-wicket victory in the first match, Pakistan will take on Australia in the second Twenty20 international at Dubai International Stadium on Friday.
Unfortunately Pakistani team could not perform well in the One Day International series and lost to Australia by 2-1. But in the T20 International Pakistani team has made a great come back in the field as it won the first T20 International match held in Dubai as Australian team were bowled out for a miserable 89 in the first match, their second lowest score in the Twenty20 history. Pakistan had chased down the diminutive target in 14.5 overs to inflict heaviest defeat in T20I defeat on Australia in terms of balls to spare.
If Pakistan will maintain their winning streak in the rest of the two matches, it will benefit them with their current 6th rank in the shortest format of the game. The probable line up for Pakistan include: Mohammad Hafeez (Captain), Imran Nazir, Nasir Jamshed, Kamran Akmal (wk), Asad Shafiq, Shoaib Malik, Abdul Razzaq, Shahid Afridi, Yasir Arafat, Umar Akmal, Saeed Ajmal, Raza Hasan, Umar Gul, Mohammad Sami, Sohail Tanvir.
The matters are extremely hard for 9th ranked Australia. Their loss in the Friday’s game will drag them to below Ireland and in this condition the only team below them will be Zimbabwe. Tackling tweakers, especially Saeed Ajmal, would still be the toughest challenge for Australia. However their skipper George Bailey is hopeful for giving better performance in the second-match. The Australian squad likely to play include: George Bailey (Captain), David Warner, Shane Watson, Matthew Wade (wk), David Hussey, Michael Hussey, , Cameron White, Daniel Christian, Glenn Maxwell, Brad Hogg, Xavier Doherty, Clint McKay, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Ben Hilfenhaus, Alister McDermott.
