Pakistan vs Australia 1st T20 Live
|Bailey: We were outplayed. Our bowling wasn’t too bad but it’s hard to tell when you put up only 89 on the board. We’re working towards the T20 World Cup, this series is the first step towards that.|
|Hafeez: Great team effort. The bowlers did a great job and the batsmen finished it off. The bowlers stuck to their plans. Raza bowled well on debut and the other bowlers did well too. The players showed great character after losing the ODI series.|
|Hafeez is the Man of the Match|
|From ICC on twitter: Pakistan is now placed fourth in the ICC T20 table and also has the most wins in T20 Internationals.|
|Australia didn’t even compete. They were bowled out for their second lowest score in T20Is and were never in a position to challenge Pakistan after that. Hafeez, Imran Nazir and Kamran Akmal enjoyed some batting practice and Pakistan finished the match with 31 balls to spare. They will be happy with Kamran Akmal’s contribution in particular; he looked aggressive and confident and helped himself to some runs as well. The lesser said about Australia the better. This is their biggest loss in terms of balls to spare.|

Imran Nazir, a dangerous gun has been added into the Pakistan T20 squad to play against Australia. He has played some brilliant knocks in recent cricket, First in BPL he blazed some good innings, Lashings 157 Runs off 41 balls knock can never be forgotten and then in SLPL he put some brilliant shots out of the ground. He is ready to thrash Aussies bowling. He is most likely to start the innings along with T20 captain Muhammad Hafeez instead of Nasir Jamshed who has no doubt brilliant average as well as good strike rate against Australia in ODI Series but he has less strike rate than Imran Nazir.
Muhammad Hafeez will have to put burden on his shoulders as a captain. He has been seemed in under pressure during his captaincy in last Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka. Now it’s the best time for Hafeez to prove his batting, bowling and captaincy as well.
A supremely talented Umar Akmal who is hard hitter batsman and T20 specialist will also be a dynamite from Pakistan. He have scored some good innings against Australia during last couple of years and in T20 Series his form will be tested too.
Shahid Afridi is not playing first 2 T20 games because of his toe injury so Abdur Razzaq will replace him who is a silent killer of the ball. In UAE, Abdur Razzaq’s record has been outstanding. In 2010, Against England he gift a win to Pakistan single handed.

- 27th March 2012 vs West Indies – won by 8 wickets

David Warner will play vital role in the series and Shane Watson is also back who has great track record against team Pakistan. Watson bowling can not be ignored while he is more dangerous when he bat and puts the ball out of the ground and stopping him become almost impossible for the bowlers.
Mitchell Starc has been brilliant in this tour. In last ODI, Starc wasn’t fit 100% but he given 100% to his team and get some important wickets.
