Ball by Ball Live Score Commentary

That’s all from our side for this game. We will see you soon. Have a good night.

Sarfraz Ahmed: Our bowling attack is good, so we try to put some runs on the board and back ourselves to defend. We have some batsman who can hit big, that’s why I promoted some of the guys up the batting order. But Babar Azam and Hafeez batted beautifully. We always try to take wickets when we have the ball in our hands.

Aaron Finch: It’s pretty embarrassing, to be fair. I think we were a little bit one-dimensional while batting, but that’s a learning experience. I think we bowled really well. I was very happy with the way we bowl. They have got a lot of variety in their bowling.

Imad Wasim: I think it is a result of my hard work. A comeback was never easy. I focused on the basics at the start, tried to bowl wicket-to-wicket and I got lucky today. I try to think every game as a last game. I would try to carry this forward.

11.25pm Time for the presentation ceremony. Imad Wasim is the Man-of-the-Match.

Ghulam Mustafa: “So Pak stand at No.1 in T20I. Outplayed Ausis”

Gaurav Madan: “Clearly Australia don’t fancy Pakistan. 5 off their 7 lowest totals have come against them.”

Arman: “Pakistan did win thanks to their potent bowling , but they have serious questions to answer regarding their middle/lower batting order.”

Runnaway: “So 139 for 17 wickets…. Also what’s the most bowled in a t20 innings (we have 6 tonight)!! ” — That’s the joint-most.

Yahya: “Thrashed…. Pak looks like to b 15 runs short but proved again that they are the best bowling unit for a reason ”

11.10pm It was not a big target to chase, but Imad Wasim rocked Australia’s innings by removing both openers in the first over of the innings. Faheem Ashraf too got into the act as Australia lost six wickets within the Powerplay. After that, it was just a matter of time. Nathan Coulter-Nile showed some resistance down the order but that only ensured Australia didn’t get bowled out for their lowest T20I total.

16.5 W Shadab Khan to Coulter-Nile googly eventually does the trick. Coulter-Nile cleared his front leg and looked to smashed it hard over long-on, so hard that the bat comes off his hands, he ends up missing the ball and the sound of timber seals the game for Pakistan OUT
NM Coulter-Nile b Shadab Khan 34 (29b 6×4 0x6) SR: 117.24
16.4 1 Shadab Khan to Stanlake fuller outside off, hits it towards extra cover 1 run
16.3 0 Shadab Khan to Stanlake another wrong’un, pushes at it and gets beaten again no run
16.2 0 Shadab Khan to Stanlake googly, Stanlake has no idea as it goes past him and beats him outside off no run
16.1 0 Shadab Khan to Stanlake tossed up on stumps, defended towards extra cover no run

Shadab now

End of Over No.16 Australia 88/9 This Over (10 runs)

15.5 1 Hasan Ali to Stanlake length ball, around middle and off, looks to go over mid-on but ends up mistiming it towards mid-off 1 run

Around the wicket

15.4 0 Hasan Ali to Stanlake short of length outside off, looks to pull it away but ends up toe-edging it towards extra cover no run
15.3 0 Hasan Ali to Stanlake fuller on stumps, Stanlake punches it back towards the bowler, who stops it in his run-up no run
15.2 1 Hasan Ali to Coulter-Nile slower one, once again fails to middle it and ends up dragging it towards midwicket 1 run

End of Over No.15 Australia 78/9 This Over (6 runs)

14.6 W Shaheen Shah Afridi to Tye length ball, angling in from around the wicket, the batsman fails to get his bat on it and the middle stumps is lying flat on the ground. Pakistan one wicket away OUT

14.4 2 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Tye fuller around middle and leg, worked away towards deep midwicket for a couple 2 runs

Andrew Tye, the new batsman. Looked like they didn’t cross

14.3 W Shaheen Shah Afridi to Zampa slower one, Zampa looks to go aerial, gets more height than distance but Hasan Ali almost made a mess of it there. Misjudged it completely at long-on as he came in charging, had to undo his steps in the ends and pedal back, eventually he takes it overhead, tumbling backwards OUT
A Zampa c Hasan Ali b Shaheen Shah Afridi 3 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85
14.2 0 Shaheen Shah Afridi to Zampa short of length, angled towards the batsman who looks to hoick it away, misses no run

12.3 0 Hasan Ali to Agar slower one, length ball around off and leaving the batsman who gets beaten by the lack of pace and ends up pushing at it no run
12.2 4 Hasan Ali to Agar short of length and pulled away. Looked like it hit the skirting on the full, but signalled four by the umpire. Yeah, landed just inside FOUR

Rehman: “Dont ever underestimate Pakistan,s ability to destroy themselves or the opponents on any given day!”

12.1 0 Hasan Ali to Agar and strikes straightaway. It was short of length, Agar backs away and looks to force it on the leg side, misses and a big appeal for caught-behind. Given but Agar reviews it. Replays confirm there was no bat involved and the ball clipped the back thigh no run

Hasan Ali comes back

End of Over No.12 Australia 56/6 This Over (3 runs)

Amit Gupta: “Asad said very right, “Pakistani Cricket one moment up, next moment down” it’s pretty visible here”
