The home side will enter the match as firm favourites as they are coming on the back of an impressive 3-0 series win in their last T20I assignment against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, new-look Pakistan will be eager to return to winning ways after suffering a rather surprising 3-0 whitewash in their last T20I assignment against Sri Lanka, that too while playing at home. In the previous five matches between both teams, it is clear advantage Pakistan as they emerged victorious in all five occasions.
