After two Test matches and two T20Is, Australia are still looking for their maiden win against Pakistan on their tour of UAE.

The biggest frustration for the Australian team is that they have all the acumen required to perform well in the shortest format of the game. Yet each time they are falling short.

In Nathan Coulter-Nile and Billy Stanlake, they have two nippy pacers. Andrew Tye adds to the variety with his T20 bowling skills. Adam Zampa is also a handy leg spinner to have. And the bowling is performing relatively well but it is the batting which is letting the team down.

With players like Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Chris Lynn, they can blast any opposition but preferably that consisting of seamers. Pakistan's spinners in Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan are not conceding runs and picking up crucial wickets as well. It is not to say that the pacers are doing any worse. Shaheen Afridi has been on the top of his game throughout the series.

If only Australia can find a way to tackle the Pakistan spinners, they can impart some respectability to the final scoreline.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.

 

Pakistan- Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Faheem Ashraf, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi

Australia- Aaron Finch, D’Arcy Short, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Andrew Tye, Billy Stanlake, Adam Zampa
