Australia eye series win against Pakistan

Australia eye series win against Pakistan

Perth, Nov 7 (UNI) Pakistan will be facing Australia in their 3rd T20 International

match on Friday here.

Pakistan have not been at their best under Babar Azam, and another defeat

would make it five in a row for the world’s No.1 team.

Australia are unstoppable. In a format they have historically struggled to come to

grips with, no less. They have been rampant in each of the completed games in

their home summer so far. It’s more proof of the value of being able to identify

specialists at a time when the three formats are becoming increasingly distant in

terms of the skills they require, and of building a squad with well-defined roles.

Pakistan are somehow clinging on to their No.1 ranking, but their performances

are increasingly doing little to justify that position. Their 3-0 sweep at the hands of a

weakened Sri Lanka, in their own conditions, seems to have sent them on a tailspin.

Heads have rolled, new captains appointed, but the results have remained the same.

Babar Azam was once again the shining jewel in a top order that fell apart rapidly.

Iftikhar Ahmed arrested the slide with a 34-ball 62 not out late in the innings, to give

Pakistan a reasonable score to defend. But Steve Smith demolished the target with

51-ball 80 not out as Australia cantered to victory.

Australia batsman Steve Smith said, “I thought the bowlers set it up early. It was

probably a 170 wicket I reckon at least. They bowled beautifully. Then it was just

about timing the run and fortunately I was able to do that.”

Pakistan captain Babar Azam said, “Steve Smith took the match away. He played

a magnificent innings. It's very difficult when we lose early wickets.”
