Steve Smith Version 2.0 80 runs off 51 balls trashes Pakistan to win the 2nd T20I by 7 wickets here in Canberra. Good Batting display from Pakistan Skipper Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed goes in vain as the Visiting team manages to score only 150 runs in the First Innings.
- Fakhar Zaman falls once again
Fakhar Zaman Continues his poor form once again makes him go with the single-digit score which troubles Pakistan early. His Batting average in last 11 matches is only 9!. Once again the middle order fails to contribute which makes Pakistan scores only 70 for 4 in 12 overs. Good Partnership between Babar Azam and Iftikhar made Pakistan a moderate score of 150. Iftikhar Ahmed scores 62 off 34 balls including 5 fours and 2 sixes. Babar Azam scores his 12th Half Century.
- Finally Warner Dismissed
After the un dismissable streak in Sri Lankan Series, Warner goes early as Mohammed Amir plucks the stump. Aaron Finch too fails earlier as Irfan takes revenge on warner for his Sydney tragedy. As the home team is in deep trouble, Smith Smith played a tremendous knock of 80 runs off 51 balls including 11 fours and 1 sixer. Good cameo from Ben McDermott and Ashton Turner made Australia wins by 7 wickets and lead the series by 1-0. The third and final T20I between these sides is on Friday in Perth.
