Pakistan will be high on confidence after clinching the ODI series against Australia. Furthermore, Babar Azam’s side are undefeated in their last six T20I matches. Australia will also miss the services of seven of their first-team players - David Warner, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith and Kane Richardson for the only T20I of the series.
Going by recent form and home advantage, Pakistan will start as favourites to win the one-off T20I match in Lahore on Tuesday.
