AUS vs PAK Dream11 Team Picks, Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report : Series within Australia’s sight as the dominant home side look to continue their stronghold over Pakistan today
A dominant Australia side made an advent into this three match T20 series against Pakistan having decimated and .decimated Sri Lanka and given the comprehensive showings meted out by them, the side were widely touted to dole out the same treatment to Pakistan. And they ensured that they lived upto every bit of expectations warranted from them with a clinical display in the second T20 to go on and take a 1-0 lead in the series.
While rain ended up snatching a certain win from the home side in the first match of the series, there was no such predicament for the side in the bygone clash as the skies remained clear. And Australia ensured they made the most of a full fledged cricket encounter by thumping Pakistan right from ball one to cruise to a 7 wicket win on the day.
Fielding first, Australia kept snaring wickets at regular occasions as their bowlers rose to occasion to leave Pakistan flabbergasted. A lack of clear and cohesive partnerships saw Pakistan totter their way to a mere 150 runs with the side reduced to 106-5 at one stage, a paltry target which Australia ended up chasing down with a good 9 balls to spare.
It gave Australia an unassailable lead ahead of the culminating encounter of the series, a performance the side will be looking to emote as they look to convert the lead into a series win today. This match looks like a foregone conclusion even before a ball is bowled with Australia enter the fray of the clash as overwhelming favourites.

AUS vs PAK Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Mohammad Rizwan has done nothing of note in the series but his selection is one born out of necessity rather than his capabilities as a player. With Australia’s top-order being so dominant, Alex Carey hasn’t got a chance to bat in the series till now and looks unlikely to do so today as well, seeing us stick with Rizwan over here.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 Batsmen
Australia’s Steve Smith is the first player to be imbedded in our Dream 11 side after the number three bat played a match winning knock for his side in the bygone encounter. He got 80 runs in 51 balls, an innings which ensured his side cruised to a win in the end without any jitters.
The 20 runs for David Warner in the opening slot sees him come in as well for us alongside counterpart Aaron Finch alongside Ben McDermott who got 21 runs while from Pakistan we are choosing opener Babar Azam who scored 50 runs in 38 balls for the side the last time around.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 All-Rounders
Left hand spinner Ashton Agar has kept sticking at regular intervals with his ball turning away from the right handers to leave them flummoxed and beleaguered to make him an instant pick from the side. Elsewhere with 62 runs in 34 balls the last time around, an innings which saw his side manage to put on some kind of a meaningful score sees Iftikhar Ahmed come into our Dream 11 side for this one.
AUS vs PAK Dream11 Bowling Order
With Pat Cummins rested for this encounter, the onus grows on Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson to pick up quick wickets and make early inroads for the side. The two new ball bowlers have done exactly so as well till now and we envision them delivering another pristine spell, seeing us get the duo from the side while from the other side we are getting in Mohammad Amir.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Smith continues to be our side’s captain for this match while Warner is the vice-captain.
