Australia vs Pakistan 2nd T20I in Canberra: Live cricket score and updates
Top-ranked Pakistan won the toss and chose to bat in the second of three Twenty20 internationals against Australia at Manuka Oval after the opening match was abandoned due to rain. The home team were on course for victory in the first game of the series in Sydney on Sunday before the weather ruined their hopes. Despite that, they have momentum, having recently swatted aside Sri Lanka 3-0, and swashbuckling captain Aaron Finch named an unchanged side. Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, the world’s number one ranked Twenty20 batsman, was the only one to offer real resistance on Sunday and he will need his teammates to step up.
