CAU vs PAK: However, ahead of the first T20I, Pakistan will be playing a practice T20 game against Cricket Australia XI at Bankstown Oval in Sydney. The Pakistan team will start their new dawn under the leadership of young and talented batsman Babar Azam.
He will be leading the side for the first time ever since former skipper Sarfraz Ahmed was stripped off from his duties and also got axed from the side. It would be interesting to see what Babar Azam has to offer with his captaincy skills.
