Australia v Pakistan, Melbourne Only Twenty20 This format of the game remains Pakistans forte. However after being mentally pummelled thoroughly on this tour, Pakistan can find it hard to pick themselves up. The match is the last opportunity for Pakistan to beat Australia in a match on this tour. Pakistan are world champions in this format and have won their last seven consecutive T20s but will be without regular skipper Shahid Afridi who is serving ban for ball tampering. Having said, that one still feels that the tourists have enough depth in their squad to cover up for this loss. The likes of Shoaib Malik, Imran Nazir, Rana Naved and Umar Gul can do anything in T20 and much would be expected of them. Australians are not very much adept at this format yet one will always find them competitive. The hosts have got good options in pace department with the likes of Mitchell Johnson, Ryan Harris, Shaun Tait and Dirk Nannes. Australians will be without Ricky Ponting who doesnt play this format thus Michael Clarke will take over the captaincy. Australians have some solid hitters in their ranks like Cameron White, Shane Watson and David Warner which will make it a nice contest to watch. Pakistan will start as slight favourites for the game just because of their adaptability and past record in this format for the game. Players to look out for Imran Nazir is a swashbuckler and a ferocious hitter. He could have been of value during the one dayers in Australia as well but wasnt included. He is a T20 specialist and Australians will be wary of his threat plus his energetic fielding also adds value to the side. Cameron White has reinvented himself this season and has become a force to reckon with. He is pretty destructive with the bat and excellent in the field. White can be useful with the ball as well bowling his leg spinners. Head to head & Conditions Melbourne Cricket Ground will be a good batting strip with consistent bounce. However there is some threat of rain which can disrupt the game. A big crowd is expected making the atmosphere electric for the game. Nabeel Sabir
