***Pakistan is Our Winner***

Toss Prediction

Three of the last four T20 internationals played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium have been won by the side bowling first. Since the wicket is expected to remain the same throughout the course of the game, the toss-winning skipper is likely to field first.

PAK Team News

Pakistan have no injury issues to deal with ahead of this second T20 international and so they will have the entire squad to choose from. However since they are coming off a comprehensive win in the last game, we don’t expect them to make any changes to their playing eleven.

PAK Key Players

The opening pair of Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman hold the key to Pakistan’s batting. Babar, who scored 99 in the second innings of the Abu Dhabi test, cracked a half-century in the last game. Fakhar is currently second in the ICC T20I batting rankings and has a strike-rate of close to 143 in this format. Apart from these two, the hosts will also expect healthy contributions from Mohammad Hafeez and Asif Ali. When it comes to bowling, Hasan Ali, Shadab Khan and Imad Wasim are going to be the main threats for Australia. Imad spun Pakistan to victory in the first T20I with a three-wicket haul and the left-arm spinner is likely to give the Aussie batsmen a hard time at Dubai as well. Shadab is the world’s second-best T20 bowler at the moment and he too will be lethal on this spin-friendly surface.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Skipper Aaron Finch has hinted at making changes to their side for the Friday’s T20I encounter. Ashton Agar was taken for plenty in the last game and he could make way for Nathan Lyon. All-rounder Mitchell Marsh is also waiting in the reserves and he could be brought in place of Ben McDermott who got dismissed for a duck.

AUS Key Players

Australia will have to come up with a much better batting display in the second T20I and for that, they will need sizeable contributions from their top order. Aaron Finch is among Australia’s best batsmen in the shortest format. The skipper failed to get off the mark last time and he will look to bounce back with a good performance here. Chris Lynn and Glenn Maxwell are both match-winners and the Aussies will be hoping for these two to fire on all cylinders. With the ball, the visitors will bank on the pace of Billy Stanlake and Andrew Tye. Both snared three wickets apiece in the last game while conceding not many runs and the duo will be backed by their team to replicate that performance on Friday. Adam Zampa is their best option from the spin department and it will be up to him to apply pressure on Pakistan in the middle overs.

AUS Recent Form

Australia have been a little inconsistent in the shortest format in recent times. They won their first five T20 internationals in a row this year but have four wins and as many losses in their last eight matches. The Aussies have got off to a poor start in the ongoing series, losing the opening encounter by a big margin.

Australia Predicted Playing 11

  • Aaron Finch (c), D’Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott/Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar/Nathan Lyon, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa, Billy Stanlake

PAK vs AUS Head to Head

Pakistan and Australia have now played ten T20 internationals against each other with the hosts leading the scoreline 10-7. One of those matches has resulted in a tie.

At the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, the two countries have faced each other on five occasions in the 20-over format with both winning two times each.

Australia registered a six-wicket win when they last played Pakistan in a T20I at this venue in October 2014. Batting first, the hosts could manage only 96/9 in their 20 overs before the visitors cantered home with six overs to spare.

Australia vs Pakistan Betting Odds

Pakistan, after their crushing win in the opening game, begin as the bookmakers’ favorites to win this second T20 international. The hosts are currently priced at 1.70 on Betway, 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.81 on Betfair. Australia continue to find themselves as the underdogs at odds of 2.05 on Betway, 2 on Bet365 and 2.16 on Betfair.

Pakistan vs Australia Prediction

Australia were left red-faced after being humiliated at the hands of Pakistan in the opening T20 international. Their batting was a complete disaster and their batsmen have not yet found a way to tackle the Pakistani spin threat. The hosts have now won the last three T20 internationals they have played against Australia and this will boost their confidence even further. This venue may not have been their fortress in this format but given how they have performed on this tour, we feel they have a very good chance of wrapping up the series on Friday.

Final Verdict: Back Pakistan to beat Australia in the second T20I at 1.70 on Betway, 1.80 on Bet365 and 1.81 on Betfair.
