Australia vs Pakistan in UAE, 2018
Australia vs Pakistan 3rd T20I Match Preview
With 11 runs win in the 2nd T20I, Pakistan sealed their 10th consecutive T20I series and will come fearlessly in the third and last game scheduled to be played on Sunday night. Pakistan leads the series by 2-0 and there’s no doubt they would be looking to clean sweep Australia through one more win.
With the 1-0 lead in the series, Pakistan opted to bat first after winning the toss in the second T20I. After losing out Fakhar Zaman at just 29 runs on board, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez took the charge to take Pakistan to 147-6 in 20 overs.
Coming to chase, Australia’s top order once again shattered like cards and the top three batsmen went back on just 31 runs on board. The only relief and ray of hope for Australia came in the like of Glenn Maxwell (52 of 37) who couldn’t finish off things and Australia fell short of 11 runs. Glenn Maxwell along with Nathan Coulter-Nile (27 of 17) helped Australia remain in the game till last over but couldn’t score 23 runs needed off the final over.
With Australia still struggling with the top order, let’s see if they can take back one win with them or will be winless for the entire tour.
