It wasn't enough as Smith stroked an unbeaten 80 as Australia edged the visitors by seven wickets.

It put them 1-0 up after the opening match in Sydney on Sunday was abandoned due to rain.

When is Pakistan vs Australia 2nd T20I?

"It's very hard when we lose early wickets and we have to gain the momentum again".

It soon seemed insufficient, however, as Australia skipper Aaron Finch and Warner stormed out of the blocks, smashing 30 runs in three overs before Warner was bowled for 20 by Mohammad Amir.

Smith got them home with a magnificent 80 off 51 deliveries, pacing his innings to perfection as top-ranked Pakistan were consigned to defeat with nine balls to spare. At the other end was Ashton Turner (8*), who had walked in at the departure of Ben McDermott (21), with whom Smith shared a crucial stand worth 58 runs.

"It was nice to be there at the end to get the boys home", man-of-the-match Smith said.

Australia wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey is happy to have a "very role-specific" side and has termed the performance of bowlers against Sri Lanka as fantastic."They've (bowlers) started this year quite well, and against Sri Lanka they were fantastic".

With both sides unchanged from Sydney, Pakistan elected to bat after winning the toss but their hopes of a statement innings were dashed by regular top order wickets.

Captain Babar Azam, the world's top ranked T20 batsman, was run out after hitting 50 off 38 balls but it was Ahmed's late charge against seamer Kane Richardson which made Pakistan total's competitive.

A piece of his magic in the field had earlier removed Pakistan's most risky batsman for Australia, with Babar Azam on 50.

The decision to rest Cummins may well open the way for Sean Abbott to play his first worldwide in more than five years, as Australia look for a victory at Perth Stadium on Friday evening to close out an unbeaten six matches against Sri Lanka and Pakistan, where so far only Sydney rain and arcane playing conditions have prevented a clean sweep.

BOWLING: Starc 4-0-25-0; Richardson 4-0-51-1; Cummins 4-0-19-1; Zampa 4-0-31-0; Agar 4-0-23-2. Unapologetically passionate about indie music and the South Australian Redbacks, Daniel's chief cricketing achievement was to dismiss Wisden Almanack editor Lawrence Booth in the 2010 Ashes press match in Perth - a rare Australian victory that summer.
