Pakistan take on Australia in second T20I today

Which team will take home the biscuit? Pic PCBMore

Australia left out Mitchell Starc but still picked three seamers in Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye and Billy Stanlake.

None of Australia's top six batsmen even managed to cross 14.The visitors lost their first six wickets inside the Powerplay which the Australian captain Aaron Finch called "a vehicle crash in slow motion".

Each of Australia's top four batsmen were bowled and Chris Lynn (14) was the only member of the top six to reach double digits in a 66-run defeat in which Australia posted their equal third-lowest total in a T20 worldwide. "It was just carnage", Finch said.

Wasim finished with 3-20 off his four overs and was the pick of the bowlers, but Finch was critical of his own dismissal, which set the horror collapse in motion. Australia will also have some fresh players after losing the two-match Test series 1-0 last week, also played in United Arab Emirates. The second wicket stand between Babar and Mohammad Hafeez (39), top scorer in his country's first ever t20 global, against England at Bristol in 2006, prospered and took the score to 105 in the 14 over and their side well on course to reach the 200 mark. Down the order, there are Faheem Ashraf and Imad Wasim for late hitting.

It was a clinical effort from the bowlers, in particular Imad Wasim, who on his return to worldwide cricket after more than a year rattled the Australian top-order to return figures of 3/20 in his four-over spell.

"It was embarrassing to be fair".

The match between Pakistan and Australia will start at 9pm Pakistan Standard Time.

The experienced Shoaib Malik will miss the first T20I while Imad Wasim, who has been out of the team for injury issues, will again be seen in action. "I think we were a little bit one-dimensional while batting, but that's a learning experience and I would say Pakistan have got a lot of variety in their bowling".

Australian were six down with just 22 runs on the board which not only tells you the story of the match and largely about the state of the batting unit.

Pakistan did not have the services of Shoaib Malik for this game and Imad played his first worldwide match this year. He praised the number one ranked T20I side in the world while also calling Australia's batting approach cocky.
