  • Pakistan to bat first in final T20I against Australia

Recalled spinner Nathan Lyon claimed his first ever T20 global wicket when Farhan sliced to Tye at long off, cutting short an innings in which he struck three sixes. Australia's batting line-up never recovered from being bowled out for 89 in the first game.

On Sunday, Pakistan completed a 3-0 whitewash of Australia after defeating them 1-0 in a two-Test series.

"We were probably just a bit tentative in the first six overs of batting", said Finch.

Leg-spinner Shadab Khan (3-19) was the pick of the Pakistan bowlers, while Australia did themselves few favours in the run chase, supplementing some poor shots with two careless run-outs. Sarfraz said the series win was "a reward for hard work". Both the times, he lost the No.1 ranking to Finch.

Pakistan survived an onslaught by big hitter Glenn Maxwell to win the second Twenty20 worldwide by 11 runs in a last over finish against Australia in Dubai on Friday. "We're looking forward to a tough series against South Africa (at home)".




Thirty-year old left-arm fast bowler Waqas Maqsood was the only member of the winning squad to not feature in a single game in the series.

Babar Azam starred again at the top of the order with his second half century of the series as Pakistan made a superb start under the lights, the hosts racing to 93-0 in the 13th over. Shane Warne Criticises Australian Team; Says, They Need Kick at Their Backside!

New Zealand scored 161 for four from their 20 overs with Glenn Phillips making 48 from 36 balls and Mark Chapman 36.

Pakistan's total was built around a solid 70-run partnership between Azam and Hafeez who built the innings after Fakhar Zaman was out for 11 with the score at 29. Veteran allrounder Shoaib Malik added 18 to become the second highest second highest run scorer in T20 worldwide history, going ahead of New Zealand's Brendon McCullum.
