Pakistan win the toss and will bat
Evening from Australia; kindly adjust that greeting for your timezone. It’s cricket time again, as it has been every couple of days through these back-to-back T20 series that Australia has scheduled. Tonight, the second match against Pakistan, who are still in the hunt despite being thoroughly outplayed on Sunday night because rain saved them from a loss with 11 balls to spare. The Australian openers were well on track to chase down Pakistan’s low total, but didn’t face the five overs required to have the game formally recognised as a result before rain washed out the day.
Now Pakistan have the chance to regroup, while the Australians will look to carry on their recent dominant run, 3-0 over Sri Lanka and starting well here. The toss will take place in a minute.
