Zimbabwe Tri-series, 2018
Australia vs Pakistan, 6th Match|AUS vs PAK WHO WILL WIN
The Big Picture
As the caravan of the tri-series rolls on, Australia will take on Pakistan in the 5th match of tri-nation tournament on Thursday, July 05.
Australia managed to shrug off their streak of nine defeats across formats with back-to-back wins against Pakistan and hosts Zimbabwe. While Billy Stanlake was their hero against Pakistan, whose 4-8 rocked Pakistani batting, as they were humbled for a poultry 116 in 19.5 overs, it was their skipper in Aaron Finch, who en-route to the individual highest score (172) in T20 cricket, plotted Zimbabwe’s downfall. With two wins in as-many-games Australia have already booked their final berth, and would go in the game against Pakistan in a bid to test their bench strength.
While the Aussies would look to test their bench-strength, Pakistan would be hoping for a much-improved performance as they aim to revive their fledgeling campaign, but before that, they’ll have to overcome the hosts, Zimbabwe. At the time of writing, Zimbabwe, on the back of Solomon Mire’s 46-ball-70 were in a good position at 2-110 in 14 overs. Can Pakistan pull off a win against hosts Zimbabwe, to avoid a do-or-die encounter against Australia on Thursday? So, who will win AUS vs PAK?
