Pakistan believe they're capable of making short work of Australia's middle order in Friday's T20 series decider in Perth.
That's if they can get through the world-class batsmen standing in their way.
The combination of Aaron Finch, David Warner and Steve Smith is already threatening to become the most potent top order in T20 international cricket.
In the five T20s he has played since returning from suspension - including a 3-0 series whitewash of Sri Lanka and two games against Pakistan - Warner has plundered 239 runs and only been dismissed once.
Smith has been similarly potent, compiling an unbeaten 80 off 51 balls in Sydney to hand Australia a 1-0 series lead over Pakistan.
Australia's batting has been so dominant with the addition of Smith and Warner that Alex Carey, nominally batting at No.6, has yet to face a ball since their return.
With Glenn Maxwell absent from the team as he deals with a mental health issue, veteran Pakistan quick Wahab Riaz believes there is a level of vulnerability in Australia's middle order of Ashton Turner, Ben McDermott and Carey.
"Warner and Smith, they are world-class batsmen and we know they are very destructive as well," Wahab told reporters on Thursday.
"Same goes with Finch as well.
"If we got three early wickets - if we get Finch, Warner and Smith out early - then I think we can easily go through the middle order and the tailenders against Australia."
Pakistan's hopes of levelling the series at Optus Stadium will also rest upon a more even batting contribution, with skipper Babar Azam - the world's No.1-ranked T20 batsman - scoring half-centuries in both games but lacking support.
"He's leading from the front," Wahab said.
"You've seen him batting in the first two games - he's been very confident, he's scoring runs. And obviously it's a new challenge for him and he will get more confidence and he will get more experience as he progresses in his career."
