Pakistan is all set to face Australia in the second match of the T20I tri-series on Monday, July 2, 2018. The match will be played at the Harare Sports Club in Harare. The match is scheduled to start at 1:00 PM PST, which is, 10:00 AM local time.

Pakistan has already played one game against the hosts, Zimbabwe, in which they achieved a victory by 74 runs, according to the BBC.

Pakistan: Their line-up seems very sorted and is the favourite to win this tri-nation tournament. Having won the first game, they would be bursting with confidence. Led by Sarfaraz Ahmed, their bowling has recently complimented their batting efforts, which made sure that they win matches.

The only thing that might strike them going into this game is the fact that they haven't really played a very strong unit in recent times in T20Is. They are likely to go into this game unchanged.

Australia: Certainly, they are going through a bad phase, but captain Aaron Finch believes that his team will bounce back during this series as the pressure will be far less on them. They have been struggling to get the combinations right, and they are coming into this without finding a perfect combination yet. They might make some experimental changes from the XI which they played in the last T20I encounter against England. It will be interesting to find how they get the balance of their side right.

Cricbuzz quotes Travis Head, the Australia opener as saying, "I've always said I'm not too bothered where I bat. Whatever's best for the team is where I'll fit.

I think I fit in anywhere in the order and can play a role for the team."

The Australian side is yet to recover from the recent ball tampering allegations. They have won only six out of 16 limited overs matches this year.

Pitch and conditions

Scoring wasn't really difficult when Pakistan was batting in the first half of the opening game, so we can say that the wicket might grip a bit as the game progresses. Nevertheless, we should get a cracker of a game.

The weather report is quite pleasing as there are no chances of rain and we will be able to get a full match of 40 overs.
