Pakistan vs Australia (PAK vs AUS) 2nd T20I Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: Australia and Pakistan are face to face here at Canberra in the second T20 match. Winning the toss and batting first, Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam hit another fifty which is his second in the second match as skipper. Wickets continued to fall as Pakistani batsmen seemed to gift easy wickets to Aussies. Apart from Babar, Iftikhar Ahmed posted a quickfire 62 off just 34 balls with three huge sixes and five fours. Pakistan managed to reach 150 with 44 runs in the last 4 overs.

Australian openers are in fine form. David Warner is yet to be dismissed in the last four T20Is he has played. Finch was at his ballistic best in the previous game hitting Mohammad Irfan for 26 runs in an over. On the other hand, Pakistan will now have to bowl accurately to defend the total.

A much-needed breakthrough for visitors!

Imad Wasim finally breaks the 58-run partnership between Ben McDermott and Steve Smith as the former is trapped LBW on 21 from 22 balls. The batsman went for the sweep but fails to make any contact and Wasim is sure that he has got his man here. After a brief pause the umpire raises his finger but the batsman goes up for a review. TV replay confirms it was an official delivery and there was no connection with the bat. However, the unusual part is that there are no ball-tracking technology and the third umpire sticks with the original decision. AUS: 106/3 (13 overs)| AUS need 45 runs in 42 balls

Trouble invited by Haris Sohail

K Richardson to Haris Sohail and its caught and bowled by the lanky bowler. Richardson wouldn't have taken more easier catch than this in his career. Haris Sohail played the most careless shot, putting Pakistan in a problematic situation. Pakitan lost their second wicket for 29 in 5 overs.

Fakhar Zaman Out

Bad form continues for Pakistan's Fakhar Zaman. He's gone for just 2 off 7 balls. He averages 9 in last 11 games. Pat Cummins claimed his wicket when Zaman was caught by David Warner!! Fakhar Zaman's progression of poor scores has one addition. Another failure for him. He lets out a huge roar as he is gutted. Angry with himself. Pakistan 22/1 in 3.2 overs. Haris Sohail is the new man in.
