A one-off T20I between Pakistan and Australia will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium tonight to put an end to what has been a historic tour. While all the visiting players played international cricket in Pakistan for the first time in the last few weeks, they will now be representing Australia in their first-ever T20I in Pakistan.
Having hosted Australia in both the Test and ODI format, Lahore will now be hosting them in the shortest format in what will be a T20I played here after more than a year. Pakistan, who have played each of the 14 T20Is here in the past, have won nine and lost five to have a commendable record.
As far as the first match of a bilateral T20I series in Lahore is concerned, Pakistan have won on four occasions and lost just once. The hosts also have a same 4-1 winning streak in Lahore T20Is under captain Babar Azam.
