The Aussies after winning the 3-ODI series against Pakistan 2-1, play the first of the two T20Is with Pakistan Wednesday afternoon today at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Both teams will be appearing in a different gear for the T20Is, which will provide a tinge of freshness both to the players and the audience, who are playing and witnessing the matches in the rather hot and humid temperatures of the UAE. And by the way, the temperature forecast for today is 40 degrees Celsius.
Although Shahid Afridi has not played any meaningful cricket in the ODIs, is not playing at least in the first T20I on account of the hand injury.
The opposing squads are as under:
GJ Bailey*, SR Watson, DT Christian, PJ Cummins, XJ Doherty, BW Hilfenhaus, GB Hogg, DJ Hussey, MEK Hussey, AC McDermott, CJ McKay, GJ Maxwell, MA Starc, MS Wade†, DA Warner, CL White
