Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

11.10pm So a poor finish to a disappointing tour for Australia. For Sarfraz, this is the right tonic after a slew of poor captaincy decisions cast doubts over his authority over the side in the lead-up to the tour. He responded with two superb knocks in the second Test as Pakistan won the Tests, and then didn’t put foot wrong in the three T20Is that followed. Australia, for all their talk of change in culture, haven’t changed their approach towards spin. Diffidence, uncertainty, over-aggression at times, and even complete lack of trust in their own game has left a lot to be desired. They have plenty of work to do if they are to compete in these parts of the world. For now, they’ll board the long flight home without a win on tour. On that note, this is Shashank and Sreshth signing out on behalf of Thilak. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Until next time, it’s goodbye from us here. Cheers


Babar Azam is the Player of the Series. He finished with scores of 68, 45* and 50. “I don’t get satisfied if I’ve performed in one match. My role is that of an anchor, who has to bat through. I try to do that.”

Shadab Khan is the Player of the Match for his three-wicket haul. “Didn’t try to do something extra, that was the key,” he says. “There was lot more grip in the previous game, today the ball was skidding through. I bowl according to situations.”

Sarfraz Ahmed: Boys have worked hard in all facets, the result is just the reward. Whoever has got an opportunity has done well. We wanted to carry forward the momentum to the New Zealand series, the way we bowled and took our catches was superb tonight.

Aaron Finch: We had our chances in all three games. Chasing under 150, you back your batsmen to get the side over the line. Our bowling was very impressive all series, keeping them to below 150 was great. We’re looking forward to a tough series against South Africa.

Alex Carey took 20 off the first over. But one wicket is all it took for Pakistan to pop open the game as the spinners took over and applied the choke clinically. For now, it’s a well-earned break for Pakistan, a very short one, before New Zealand come calling. The first of three T20Is starts in Abu Dhabi on October 31.

Statistician Mazher Arshad tweets: “Six of Australia’s eight lowest totals in T20Is have come against Pakistan.”

19.1WHasan Ali to Zampa Pakistan win 3-0! The 30th time they’ve bowled an opposition out in T20Is! Full on off, and he tried to muscle it over long off. No power behind that shot and the hosts are delighted OUT
A Zampa c Imad Wasim b Hasan Ali 9 (10b 1×4 0x6) SR: 90.00


18.62Usman Khan to Lyon full on off, and he swings across the line to long on. Shoaib throws from the deep, and Lyon could be run-out, but the ball has hit his body. No appeal for obstruction because the batsman did not alter his running path 2 runs
Arham: “Babar Azam is the MoS for me. Set up the game in all 3 matches. Imad had a slight off day today”

Here’s the GOAT

AJ Tye c †Sarfraz Ahmed b Hasan Ali 5 (9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55
17.51Hasan Ali to Zampa good length outside off, and pulled in front of square to deep midwicket 1 run

Umair: “Man of the match shadab khan, man of the series Babar azam ” — Imad for MoS?
17.30Hasan Ali to Zampa back of a length outside off, and the ball stays low due to the lack of pace. Zampa misses the pull as the ball goes under no run
Rakesh Sampat: “The Australians have batted as if they don’t believe that they can last 10 balls on this track and have got out by slogging blindly & in desperation. After 20 off the 1st over they required 130 off 19 overs and sensible batting scoring 5-6 an over, keeping wickets in hand till the 12-13th over and then aiming for 1 big over would have seen them win comfortably, but desperate, frantic, senseless batting strategy showcased their fear and loss of confidence.”
17.21Hasan Ali to Tye good length outside off, and the pull is inside-edged to short fine leg. Only 113kph 1 run
17.10Hasan Ali to Tye full on middle, and zipping inwards. Tye looks to nudge it towards the leg side, but it hits his pad. Hasan appeals but it’s going down leg no run

16.31Shadab Khan to Zampa full outside off, and driven with the bat’s open face to point 1 run
16.20Shadab Khan to Zampa full outside off, and driven to cover off the front foot no run
16.11Shadab Khan to Tye dropped at deep extra cover! Faheem Ashraf drops a sitter. Full outside off, and driven with the turn over cover. Not enough power in that shot, and Faheem had enough time to compose himself, but the ball just popped out 1 run
Australia need 50 off four overs. Looks highly unlikely. How sad has it been that this series has been a total no-contest?

15.50Usman Khan to Tye length ball outside off, and a wild cross-batted swing from Tye. Through under his bat to Sarfraz no run

15.2WUsman Khan to Coulter-Nile Shadab runs from point and whips the bails off! It was a yorker on off that Coulter-Nile wedged to point. He wanted the run, but Tye wasn’t interested, and the fielder has enough time to sprint towards the batsman’s stumps and perform the last rites OUT
NM Coulter-Nile run out 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
15.1WUsman Khan to Short back of a length outside off, and pulled to deep midwicket. But Shoaib Malik, yes that grand old man, runs to his left from long on and slides across the ground to take a mindblowing catch. He’s 37, would you believe it? And is that the end of Australia’s challenge OUT
DJM Short c Shoaib Malik b Usman Khan 10 (15b 1×4 0x6) SR: 66.66


14.61Shadab Khan to Short back of a length outside lff, and turned off the back foot to square leg 1 run
14.54Shadab Khan to Short swept! And swept hard. Full on off, and down on one knee as he slaps this behind square. Asif in the deep tries to dive and intercept, but the ball wins the race. Asif crashes into the security guard near the ropes too FOUR
14.40Shadab Khan to Short full on off, and spinning away from Short. Pushed off the front foot to point with the angled bat no run
Salman: “I don’t think there is any safe hands in current Pakistan lineup than Malik. Will miss him beside batting and occasional bowling. Such a legend he is. #Mallik”
14.3WShadab Khan to Marsh chipped! To long on. Shoaib Malik dives forward to complete that catch. Length ball angling in, and cramping him for space. Can’t free his arms, and he lobs it into the hands of the fielder manning the boundary OUT
