T20 INTERNATIONAL CRICKET: Third Match Pakistan vs Australia.


Australia have wrapped up another T20 series to go 2-0 in the T20 series with a win over Pakistan at Perth’s Optus Stadium and created a bit of History.

PERTH, AUSTRALIA – NOVEMBER 08: Australia celebrate after winning the series during game three of the International Twenty20 series between Australia and Pakistan at Optus Stadium on November 08, 2019 in Perth, Australia.

For the first time Australia have completed an undefeated calendar year of T20, winning all seven matches (with one no result) this season since their last lost to India in November 2018. 

Pakistan have been the exact opposite, winning just one of their 10 matches this calendar year with eight losses and a no result.

Yet Strangely, Pakistan have held on to the top spot in the T20 rankings.

It’s just the second time in T20 history Australia have won a T20 by 10 wickets, the last being in 2007 against Sri Lanka.

Australia were led by Aaron Finch’s 52 off 36 balls and David Warner’s 35-ball 48 as the side romped to the modest chase of just 107 in 11.5 overs.

The side made short work of the total as Pakistan were made to look very average at Perth Stadium.

Australia had Babar Azam out first and the No.1 ranked side in T20 cricket limped 8/106 at the end of their overs.

Sean Abbott ended his five year exile from the team with figures of 2/14 off four overs and Kane Richardson had 3/18 off his four.

It was a dominant display from Australia with Iftikahar Ahemd’s 45 off 37 balls and Imam ul-Haq’s 14 the only players to pass 10.
