When and where to watch PAK vs AUS 2nd T20I

Pakistan's Babar Azam 59* today

Australia's next T20I will be against Pakistan at the Manuka Oval on November 5. Now, Pakistan cannot win the series, but they can certainly ensure that it ends in a stalemate provided they win the third and final T20I which will be played at the Optus Stadium in Perth on Friday.

Warner had put his Ashes nightmare to one side by scoring 100 not out as well as two unbeaten fifties in the 3-0 T20I series whitewash over Sri Lanka, before scoring two not in the washed-out opening T20I against Pakistan. Smith took complete control of the pursuit, providing a reminder that in the brief phase in which he has previously played in the Australia T20I side as a specialist batsman rather than a speculative wrist spin bowler, he showed an aptitude for being the "clean up man" if early wickets fell.

Babar had received little support in the first 14 overs as Pakistan stumbled to 83-4 - Mohammad Rizwan (14), Haris Sohail (6), Azhar Ali (4) and Fakhar Zaman (2) out cheaply and Australia spinner Ashton Agar taking two wickets for the hosts.

"It was nice to be there at the end to get the boys home", Smith said.

It soon seemed insufficient, however, as Australia skipper Aaron Finch and Warner stormed out of the blocks, smashing 30 runs in three overs before Warner was bowled for 20 by Mohammad Amir. He reached his 50 off 36 balls, and pillaged 29 runs off 15 deliveries, with Turner hitting the winning runs off the third ball of the 19th over. "I guess you have to bear in mind ... early in my career I was batting No. 8 or 9, coming in and slogging, facing half a dozen balls tops. They bowled beautifully. Then it was just about timing the run and fortunately I was able to do that tonight".

Cummins featured in each the earlier T20Is in opposition to Pakistan.

"We are disappointed but Steve Smith took the match away", Babar said through a translator. We have to gain the momentum again.

That will be his only red-ball preparation before the Test squad assembles for a camp in Brisbane ahead of the Test series against Pakistan.
