Home side just crushed Vistors by 2-0 series Lead, all credit goes to Pakistan bowlers they have shown why their bowlers are best than other Teams. a team like Australia who believes in going on every ball in T20Is struggled in the whole Powerplay.

It was a low scoring Game in which Pakistan set the target of 148 runs in 20 Overs with the help of Babar 45 runs in 44 balls and Hafeez 40 runs in 34 balls.

While chasing Pakistan did that which they are best at, from very first over they attacked Australian batsman with Spinners and seamers combination. Australia Managed only 28 runs in Powerplay with a loss of 2 wickets. Opener Darcy Shot again flopped and Chris Lynn too. Finch also seemed struggling to connect the ball with his bat and he missed the ball while playing lofted shot in the 7th Over.

Pakistan bowled really well but they dropped so many Catches as well which pulled the game to final over because you can't give chances to players like Maxwell, At one Stage Maxwell started middling the ball but it was too late the required run rate was over 14 at that time. Maxwell and Coulter Nile remained unbeaten till 19th over but in the last over 23 runs were required and they both caught in the final Over.

Imad Wasim became the man of the match for giving only 8 runs in  4 overs. 

Scorecard-

PAKISTAN 147/6 (20.0 Ovs)                                                                    Pakistan won by 11 runs

AUSTRALIA 136/8 (20.0 Ovs)
