First T20 between Pakistan and Australia called off due to rain

The first T20I between Australia and Pakistan in Sydney was abandoned on Sunday.

Pakistan can consider themselves lucky as rain washed out the first T20I against Australia in Sydney after the visitors founds themselves with their backs to the wall.

The hosts were motoring along at 41-0 in just 3.1 overs as they chased 119 in 15 overs when rain interrupted play for the second and final time.

Skipper Aaron Finch had done almost all of the scoring and was unbeaten on 37 off 16 deliveries after taking a particular liking to Mohammad Irfan, who he had smashed for 26 runs in the previous over.

Earlier in the day, new skipper Babar Azam showed precisely why he is the number one ranked batsman in T20I cricket as he hit an unbeaten 59 off 38 deliveries in a stuttering effort by the Pakistan side as they made 107-5 in 15 rain-interrupted overs.

There was precious little support from the other batsmen for Babar, with Mohammad Rizwan’s circumspect 31 off 33 deliveries being the only other effort of note.
