It’s rare for a bilateral series to have three Tests and as many ODIs but only a single T20I. But that’s the reality between Pakistan and Australia, whose tour-ending fixture sees them clash in a one-off T20I on April 5 (Tuesday) at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. The match is to begin at 9pm IST.

Teams Status


Spirits must be sky high in Pakistan camp, thanks to their recent ODI series win in which they were super impressive in the final two games – both of which they won to clinch it 2-1.

This game can’t exactly be called a revenge match because the one Pakistan lost to Australia in the same format last year was a World Cup semi-final. This is not even a series. Nonetheless, the home side would want to win it – if for nothing else than to soothe those old gashes a bit.

One major good news for Pakistan is that their star allrounder Shadab Khan is fit and available for selection. One of Shahnawaz Dahani and Usman Qadir could also be picked.

Pakistan are ranked number three in ICC’s Men’s T20I Team Rankings, while Australia are in sixth place.


Australia started the ODI series well but then tailed off a bit. Their bowling, especially, has been a bit ordinary of late. Star spinner Adam Zampa, whose four-for was crucial in the ODI series’ game 1, has now been completely understood by Pakistan batters.

Zampa is one of just three Australian players who featured in the aforesaid World Cup semi last year. Aaron Finch and Marcus Stoinis are the other two. It shows how changes this Aussie line-up is to what it can be at full strength.

Australia, like Pakistan, have been in superb form in T20I format of late, winning 10 of their last 12. Pakistan, on the other hand, have won 11 of their last 12. 

It makes this an exciting clash between two superb T20 units.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Pakistan to win @ 1.78

Pakistan has some of the best T20I players in the world. Don’t get us wrong. Australia have more than their share of talent too but a ton of them are away playing the IPL and they also have the away side disadvantage here. Therefore, we back Pakistan to win this game. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Mohammad Rizwan to score more than 27.5 runs @ 1.87

Mohammad Rizwan has had a quiet home series but T20 is the format he excels the most in. With him set to open alongside Babar Azam, runs are pretty much guaranteed. He scored 67 in the World Cup semi-final his team lost as well. The odds for this play have been sourced from Parimatch.


Pakistan edge the head-to-head with Australia, thanks to their 13 wins and 10 defeats and one NR. That makes us more confident about backing Pakistan
