  • He says that he enjoyed the two wickets on his return. Adds that he has been in the groove for a while but he is happy to be back. Tells that he has been training for a while and he is happy that he got the opportunity to play.
  • Now then, the way the Australian top-order has been batting, this should be an easy chase. But with Pakistan, predicting anything too early is not good. Will the Pakistan bowlers do something like their counterparts and manufacture a win or will the Australian juggernaut continue to roll? Join us for the run chase. In the meantime, Sean Abbott is down for an interview.
  • For the Australians, everything has gone their way today. First, they won the toss and elected to bowl and then they kept taking wickets at regular intervals. Starc did the damage with the new ball. Abbott and Richardson did a good job in the middle overs and Stanlake and Agar also played their roles well. Overall an excellent bowling performance from the hosts and they would surely fancy themselves to chase this total down. Anything other than that will be a big surprise.
  • Another sorry display with the bat for Pakistan! 8 single digit scores for them. Just the one man, Iftikhar Ahmed, showed fight and like the last game, he was the top scorer. However, he fought a lone battle and despite his effort, Pakistan are nowhere close to a score which should worry the Aussies.
  • 19.6 Last ball of the innings but the same story. Hasnain looks to heave at this length ball but fails to connect. Pakistan finish on 106/8.

  • 19.4 Finally the bat connects with the ball! Amir pushes this one towards mid-wicket for a single.

Finch, the Aussie skipper runs in and takes the catch on the second attempt after fumbling on the first. Pakistan in tatters here and it looks difficult to see them crossing the 120-run mark.

  • 16.2 Short of a length outside off, cut to the man at point.

  • Imad Wasim is the next man in. Can he arrest the Pakistan slump along with Iftikhar?
  • 12.1 OUT! Starc takes a very good catch and Richardson has a wicket on the first ball of his new spell. It is the debutant who departs now. A length ball on middle, Shah looks to heave it to the leg side. The ball takes the top edge and goes high in the air towards third man. Carey initially thought this could be his catch as he goes for it. However, it goes far from him and towards third man. Starc settles himself under the ball and pouches it superbly. Half the Pakistan side are back in the hut now.

A flighted ball outside off, Sohail comes down the track and looks to clear the long off fielder but gets no timing. The ball goes straight to Kane Richardson at long off who makes no mistake. Pakistan are 4 down inside 10 overs.

  • 5.4 Fuller again, driven straight to mid on.
  • 5.3 FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries for Ahmed now. A full ball outside off, Ahmed creams it through the covers this time. Top shot. He got a half century in the last game so he is high on confidence.
  • 5.2 FOUR! Nicely done! Iftikhar is off the mark with that boundary. Starc is targeting the timber and hence he bowls a full ball on middle, Iftikhar though gets his bat down in time and flicks it to the deep mid-wicket fence.
  • 5.1 Good length ball around off, Iftikhar defends it out watchfully.
  • Starc is back on. 2-0-9-2 are his figures so far.

  • Iftikhar Ahmed is the new batsman in.
  • 4.3 OUT! Caught! Imam departs now. Abbott gets his man. A short ball outside off, Imam goes for the pull but gets a top edge which goes high in the air. Ben McDermott gets under the ball at square leg and pouches it comfortably. He had got a boundary on the last ball, not sure if that shot was needed.
  • 4.2 FOUR! That came from the sweet spot of the bat. A fullish length ball around off, Imam drives it down the ground and over the bowler's head for a boundary.
  • 4.1 Around off, Imam keeps it out.
  • 3.6 Full outside off, Sohail drives but misses to put any bat on the ball. 18/2
  • 3.5 Another mistimed pull but it lands in no man's region. Shortish length around off, Imam goes for the pull but mistimes it towards wide of the mid on fielder for a run.
  • 3.4 Play and a miss. Good length ball outside off, Imam throws the kitchen sink at the ball but misses out.
  • 3.3 NOT OUT! The dive saves him there. Short of a length ball on middle, Imam looks to pull but can't time it well. It goes wide of the square leg fielder. Imam after taking the first run, decides for the second very late. Abbott gets to the ball at deep square leg and fires a throw to the keeper who whips the bails off but Imam gets back in with the dive.
  • Run out appeal! Looks safe but still the umpire wants to double-check.
  • 3.2 Shortish length on middle, Imam walks down a couple of steps and tucks it towards the leg side. He wants a run but Sohail at the other end sends him back.

  • 2.4 No hat-trick as Sohail keeps this full ball on off towards mid off.
  • Haris Sohail to face the hat-trick ball.
  • 2.3 OUT! Stumps shattered! Another one bites the dust. Starc is on fire. What an inswinging delivery to shatter the stumps. This came tailing back in to the right-hander. It pitches on middle and goes the other way as Rizwan looks to bring his bat down. He misses out and the ball goes behind to disturb the timber. A golden duck for Rizwan.
  • Mohammad Rizwan is in at no.3.
  • 2.2 OUT! Umpire's call and Australia get a massive wicket. What a comeback ball from Starc. A full, inswinging delivery. Azam looks to flick it away but can't make any connection. The ball thuds into the pads and Starc makes a loud appeal. The umpire takes his time and raises the finger. Azam, after consulting the non-striker, opts for the review. Here comes the Hot Spot, no bat on that. Nothing on the Snicko either. Where is it hitting? Here comes the Ball Tracker and it shows that it is clipping leg which means umpire's call. Pakistan keep their review but a huge blow for them early on.
  • Review time! Pakistani skipper and in form batsman Babar Azam is the man in question as he has been adjudged LBW.
  • 2.1 FOUR! Captain on the move now as he smashes his first boundary. Short and wide outside off, Azam stays on the back foot and crunches the punch through point.
  • 2.1 WIDE! Another one down the leg side. Starc bowls this one way down the leg side. Carey dives to his left to save a certain four byes.
  • 2.1 WIDE! Starc sprays down the leg side this time. Azam flicks but makes no connection. Called wide by the umpire.
  • 1.6 FOUR! Up and over this time. Not from the middle of the bat but Imam will take it. This is the first one of the innings. Slightly full on middle, Imam skips down the track and manages to power it over the mid on fielder. It races to the fence. 9/0
  • A bit of a light moment in the commentary box as Adam Gilchrist wishes Brett Lee a very happy birthday. Co-commentator Mark Howard has no idea and quips, 'Is it?' 'Yeah!' says Gilly in his true on-imitable style. We also, would take this moment to wish the speedster a happy birthday. Happy 43rd, Binga!
  • 1.5 Beaten! Nice shape away from the batter after pitching. This one pitches around off and moves away as Imam pokes at it.
  • 1.4 Full on the leg stump line, Imam looks to flick but misses to get hit low on the pads. A muted appeal which dies down quickly.
  • 1.3 Fullish length on middle this time, Azam works it towards deep square leg for a run.
  • 1.2 Fuller length on off this time, Azam drives it straight to mid off.
  • 1.1 Starts with a full length ball on middle, Imam pushes it towards mid on and takes a quick single.
  • Sean Abbott to bowl from the other end. A comeback for him after 5 years in international colours. Great to see him back!
  • 0.6 On the hips on middle, tucked behind square for a run. A top over this one from Starc to start off the innings. 3/0
  • 0.5 Down the leg side on a fullish length this time. Imam looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. Carey behind the wicket does well to grab the ball.
  • 0.4 Full ball on fourth stump line, pushed to mid off for a single by Azam to get off the mark.
  • 0.3 Play and a miss this time! A length ball in the channel, Azam feels for the ball but misses to put any bat on it.
  • 0.2 Yorker first up to the Pakistani skipper. What a top nut this one. Right on the toes of Azam, he manages to keep it out.
  • 0.1 Outside edge on the first ball but this goes in the vacant gully region. A fuller ball outside off. Imam reaches out to drive but manages a thick outside edge which goes to third man for a single.
  • The Australian players step out onto the ground and are taking their fielding positions. They are followed by the Pakistani openers, new inclusion Imam-ul-Haq and skipper Babar Azam. Mitchell Starc to start the proceedings with the ball.
  • Pakistan Playing XI - Imam-ul-Haq (in for Fakhar Zaman), Babar Azam (C), Mohammad Rizwan (WK), Haris Sohail, Iftikhar Ahmed, Khushdil Shah (Debut, in for Asif Ali), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Mohammad Hasnain (in for Mohammad Irfan), Muhammad Musa (Debut, in for Wahab Riaz).
  • Australia Playing XI - (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Steven Smith, Ben McDermott, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (WK), Ashton Agar, Sean Abbott (in for Pat Cummins), Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Billy Stanlake.
  • Toss - Australia win the toss and have opted to bowl first.
  • After a washout at Sydney in the first T20I, it was Australian domination in the 2nd T20I. In the 2nd game, the visitors managed to reach 150 runs, courtesy a late blitz from Iftikhar Ahmed. However, against the Australian top-order that looked too small a target and Steven Smith with an unbeaten 82-run knock took the side home comfortably. David Warner and Aaron Finch are in red-hot form for the Kangaroos. The pace attack comprising of Starc, Richardson and Cummins are chipping in with wickets while Zampa and Agar are doing exceptionally well for the side. For the visitors, the entire batting is revolving around skipper Babar Azam. Others around him have not done any justice with the bat as of yet. The no.1 ranked side's bowling unit is missing the cutting edge and have not been able to perform the way the side wants them too. Now, it is the final T20I. Australia would want to win this one before the longer format starts. The Green team, on the other hand, would look to register the first win of the series to level it. Will the Australians be able to win consecutive T20I series or will Babar Azam's men stop the Aussie juggernaut to level the series? We will get to know all these soon. Stay with us for the Toss and team update soon.

  • So that is it from the T20I series between the two! Now it is time for the longest format which begins on the 21st of November in Brisbane at 1000 local (0000 GMT). Till then take care and goodbye!

Mentions the way Agar bowled recently has been exceptional especially on such wickets. Further adds every bowler has contributed their bit and have been excellent throughout. Also tells, they always want their top three to bat deep and that is what their aim is and he hopes there are bigger things to come.
  • Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam, says he is very disappointed with the way he lost but they have learnt a lot in this series and they would look to take the positives forward. States they need to keep learning and do not repeat the mistakes moving ahead. Mentions the young quickies are really good but Finch and Warner are destructive but it is a learning curve for the youngsters. Ends by saying they have a few days to get ready for the Test series and they are excited for it.
  • MAN OF THE SERIES, Steven Smith, says it was great to contribute in this series, he only had the chance to bat once so it was surprising.

On his own performances, Warner adds that he has to keep practicing in the nets and wants to do the right things to help his team.
  • In return, the Aussie openers did what they have been doing throughout this series, attack the Pakistan bowlers. They did it quite easily and have won this game without losing a wicket. So they take the series 2-0. Let me remind you it would have well been 3-0 had the rain not interrupted in the first game. Also, had it been 3-0, Australia would have gone to the top of the T20I rankings. Nevertheless, they will still be pleased with what they have achieved. Stay tuned for the presentation.
  • Australia have chased this down without breaking any sweat and that was expected. We do not think anybody had a doubt about this not being chased. Credit to Warner and Finch but most of the credit has to be given to their bowlers who set it for them by restricting the Pakistan side to 106 after winning the toss and electing to bowl.
