AUS vs PAK: Pakistan will look to show some resilience in the 2nd T20I of the 3-match T20I series against Australia on January 26. After being whitewashed in the 3-match ODI series against Australia, Pakistan lost the first T20I against the Meg Lanning-led side without putting up much of resistance.
With just two official T20Is left before the start of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa next month, Pakistan will look to tick at least some boxes against a strong Australian unit. Opting to bat first in the North Sydney Oval, Pakistan could only put up 118 in 20 overs. In reply, Australia chased down the score with ease. They had 38 balls left and 8 wickets to spare.
Omaima Sohail top-scored for Pakistan with 30 runs but that came off 36 balls. No batter could get going except Ayesha Naseem, who hit 3 sixes to give Pakistani fans some reason to cheer. Megan Schutt’s 5-wicket haul broke the back of the Pakistani batting innings. Alana King and Elise Perry picked up a couple of wickets each and offered ample support to Schutt.
In the batting department, Australia lost Lanning and Tahlia McGrath inside the first 8 overs. However, Elise Perry and Ashleigh Gardner steadied the ship and finished the match. Perry remained not out on 57 off 40 balls while Gardner made 30 off just 19 deliveries.
