The Asian giants registered their first win of the tournament when they beat the Netherlands in their most recent clash.
This is a do-or-die match for Pakistan, and a defeat here will end their campaign in the T20 World Cup. Babar Azam has been going through a rough phase, and he would want to score some runs in this match. The spin duo of Mohammad Nawaz and Shadab Khan will be vital here in Sydney.
