2nd T20I: Smith powers Australia to 7-wicket win over Pak

An unbeaten 80 by Steven Smith handed hosts Australia a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Pakistan in the second match of the three-match T20I rubber at the Manuka Oval here on Tuesday. With this win, Australia has taken a 1-0 lead in the series with the first match being washed out on Sunday in Sydney.

Chasing a moderate 151-run target, Australia lost openers David Warner (20) and Aaron Finch (17) with just 48 runs on the board before Smith stepped in to put things back in control for the hosts.

While Mohammad Amir accounted for the wicket of Warner, Mohammad Irfan packed back Finch in the sixth over.
