The first and the only T20 of the tour between Pakistan and Australia will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 5th April 2022. Australia have clinched the Test series whereas Pakistan made a strong comeback to win the ODI series.

Australia will play without their pace trio of Starc-Hazlewood-Cummins who were the key players during the team’s T20 World Cup triumph. Counterparts Pakistan are heavily dependent on their batting duo of captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan who are currently ranked 1st and 2nd respectively in ICC World T20 ranking.

This match will be the last match of this historic tour and both teams will try to win this game and the T20 series as well. Pakistan’s team will be looking forward to taking revenge for the ICC T20 World Cup Semifinal’s defeat against Australia.

Pakistan Preview

Pakistan are currently ranked 3rd in the ICC T20 ranking and will play the only T20 of the tour against the mighty Aussies on 5th April 2022 at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Pakistan are running in good touch and they will try to carry this momentum with them in this upcoming T20 match.

Pakistan played the last T20 series against Australia in 2019 when they toured Australia. Australia thrashed Pakistan and won the T20 series by 2-0. The first game of that series went resultless but later Australia won the 2nd and 3rd game by 7 and 10 wickets respectively. Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam was the leading run-scorer in that series and he had scored 115 runs in 3 matches at an average of 57.50

During the last meet in T20 World Cup’s semifinal, Pakistan did perform well with the bat. Mohammad Rizwan’s 67 from 5 balls and Fakhar Zaman’s 55 from 32 balls, were brilliant innings from that match. Despite scoring a good score on the board, Pakistan’s bowlers couldn’t manage to restrict the target and lost the semifinal.

This T20 will be a golden opportunity for Pakistan to take revenge for all those previous defeats against Australia. Pakistan’s current squad is looking well balanced and they will try to utilize all strength against the Aussies in this last match of the Australia tour of Pakistan.

Key Players: Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Pakistan Predicted Playing XI:

Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Khushdil Shah, Asif Ali, Iftikar Ahmed, Haris Rauf, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Zahid Mahmood.

Australia Preview

Australia will play their last match of the tour against the hosts at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The first and the only T20 will be played on 5th April. Australia got defeated in the ODI series very brutally and that is why they will be looking forward to taking this opportunity to put the cheery on the top by winning the last match.

After the historic Test series win against Pakistan in this tour, Australia got defeated in the ODI series. Due to the covid concerns and injury issues, Australia are lacking their experienced players. Although they are lacking players like David Warner and Pat Cummins, they fought well against Pakistan in the ODI series

Skipper Aaron Finch’s poor form is the main concern for the team right now and that is why they are heavily dependent on their bowling lineup. Adam Zampa who did bowl brilliant spells in the ODI series will be the key player for the Aussies if they want to win the T20 game. He has taken 14 wickets in his last 9 T20 games.

Australia’s batting is heavily dependent on their middle-order batting unit where players like Ben McDermott, Marus Labuschagne, and Marcus Stoinis will have to perform better against Pakistan's fiery pace attack. Australia will try to execute their plans well on 5th April against the hosts to win the T20 match.

Key Players: Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Adam Zampa, Nathon Ellis.
 

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), Travis Head, Ben McDermott, Marnus Labuschagne, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Adam Zampa, Sean Abbott, Nathon Ellis, Mitchell Swepson.

Weather Conditions

The weather will be sunny on a matchday with temperatures ranging between 38°C and 22°C. This pitch has always favored bowlers and the trend has continued in the last ODI series as well.

Venue Details

The venue for this match will be Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. The stadium has modern floodlights and can accommodate nearly 65,000 spectators.

Toss: To Bowl

Toss will be a crucial factor in the match results. In the last 5 T20 matches played here at Lahore, the team who chose to chase the target had won 3 times whereas, the team had won just 1 game while defending the target. The team winning the toss should opt for the ball first here.

By looking at the current squads of both teams, Pakistan will have an advantage over Australia in the only T20 match of the tour. The Australian team is facing injury issues and will play without their few key T20 players which might help Pakistan to clinch this game. On the other hand, Pakistan have made a strong comeback in the ODI series and they have momentum with them ahead of this T20 game.

 

We predict that Pakistan will defeat Australia!
