When and where to watch PAK vs AUS 2nd T20I

The first match was a no result because of rain with Australia in charge at Sydney.

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. The match was subsequently reduced to 15-overs-a-side when the players returned and skipper Babar Azam made 59 not out to help Pakistan to a below-par 107/5. 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. In T20 I've thought for seven or eight years that how you're bowling unit plays and how you field is really important.

Steve Smith struck a sparkling half-century to fire Australia to an emphatic seven-wicket victory over Pakistan in their T20 match in Canberra on Tuesday. "They bowled beautifully. Then it was just about timing the run and fortunately I was able to do that tonight".

Pakistan, who are now the top-ranked T20I side have not had a good time in the game's shortest format so far. "I enjoy batting here", said Babar Azam at the post-match presentation.

"It's very hard when we lose early wickets and we have to gain the momentum again". Iftikhar gets the credit for the knock he played. "Everyone is playing their roles really well, and we've got guys like Steve, who does what he does best".

After Pakistan won the toss and opted to bat, opener Fakhar Zaman, desperately in need of runs, was left floundering against Pat Cummins and was out for two, driving to Warner at mid-off. Chasing a target of 151, the Aussies had got off to a good start as the opening pair of David Warner and captain Aaron Finch had added 30 runs before the southpaw was castled by Mohammad Amir in the quest of scoring quick runs.

Australia spinner Ashton Agar (2-23) and Adam Zampa (0-31) slowed down Pakistan in the middle overs before Ahmed's late assault against Richardson saw the seamer leak 36 runs in his last two overs.
