Australia crumble to 33-run defeat against Pakistan in final T20

Australia crumble to 33-run defeat against Pakistan in final T20

The bowling unit was solid once again and Coulter-Nile along with the two spinners did especially well to haul their team back into the game after Pakistan made a reasonably good start so they will aim to produce more of the same here with Ashton Agar possibly coming back in for another spin option.

Pakistan retained the same winning combination the New Zealand series that humbled Australia in the just concluded series in UAE.

The 121 runs that were shared across the top three proved vital, with the middle order struggling to make an impact as they came in looking to add runs rapidly. However, this result will help New Zealand move ahead of England and Australia in the third position. Skipper Aaron Finch failed yet again, scoring only one while Chris Lynn (15) and Glenn Maxwell (four) also inflicted little damage as seamer Hasan Ali finished with 2-14. "We wanted to carry forward the momentum to the New Zealand series, the way we bowled and took our catches was superb tonight". The opener top scored for the fourth innings in succession for Pakistan, across the three-match 20-over series and the last innings of the Test series.

Pakistan have dropped Fakhar Zaman and Shaheen Afridi and brought in Sahibzada Farhan and Usman Khan Shinwari.

Vice-captain Mitch Marsh, who was omitted for the ODI tour and will instead prepare for the Test series against India by captaining Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield, says avoiding a clean sweep would be a big boost for the group.

Mohammad Hafeez, who survived an lbw decision on review, contributed 32 from 20 deliveries but, with two wickets falling in a single Mitchell Marsh over, the home side clawed their way to 150 from the final ball of the innings.

The first match will be played in Abu Dhabi on October 31 and the next two in Dubai on November 2 and 4.

Babar scored 163 runs in 3 matches at an average of 81.50 and a strike-rate of 117.52.
