After a washout denied Australia victory in Sydney, the series moves to Canberra where the Australians will be looking to continue their unbeaten run so far this summer. Pakistan showed glimpses throughout the first match of the series and there is no doubt they have the talent to take it up to the Aussies, however consistency in these conditions will be the biggest challenge for the number one ranked T20 nation in the world.
Tue Nov 5, Manuka Oval, 7:10pm (AEDT)
Steve Smith didn’t get an opportunity in Sydney, but he should get an opportunity on what has traditionally been a difficult pitch in the nation’s capital, where he has scores of 73*, 51 and 72 from his three international innings at the venue. On what is likely to be a slow pitch that could prove difficult to start on, Smith’s class will rise to the top where plenty of overs of spin will be bowled. At $4.50 with SportsBet, Smith is simply too good to pass on as the highest run scorer for Australia.
Mitchell Starc has been in scintillating form with the white ball in 2019 and is one of Australia’s best performed bowlers in white ball cricket at Manuka Oval. Starc has seven wickets at an average of 19.14 from 25 overs in ODI cricket at Manuka Oval. Starc took 2/22 in the series opener in Sydney and looks set to continue his rich vein of form. At $3.50 with SportsBet, Starc is the favourite to be the leading wicket taker for Australia.
Babar Azam is the number one ranked T20 batsman in the world, however Mohammad Rizwan showed that he can be the man to shoulder the load with an aggressive 31, where he took the inform Adam Zampa to the cleaners. He showed he is capable against both spin and pace, and he isn’t afraid to take the game on. At $6.50 with SportsBet, he is a great value pick to be Pakistan’s top run scorer.
Imad Wasim is currently the number two ranked T20 bowler in the world and his left arm orthodox could cause havoc for the Australian right handers. Wasim performed well when Pakistan last toured Australia in 2017, where he took the scalp of Steve Smith. The pitch in Canberra should offer plenty for the spinners along with the long square boundaries, Wasim will be a handful for the Aussies to face. At $5 with SportsBet, Wasim provides incredible value for one of the world’s best bowlers.
After one washed out T20, we have already seen that we are in for a much more competitive series than what Sri Lanka offered last week. Although Pakistan is the top ranked side in the T20 format, this Australian side is stronger in these conditions, and in the form they currently are in, will be very difficult to beat. The Australians strength in their batting depth will provide a major impact as the Aussies will go up 1-0, at $1.22 on SportsBet, is a nice anchor for your multi.
