Commentary

END OF OVER:
20 | 7 Runs 1 Wkt | PAK: 125/9

  • Mohammad Asif5 (2b)
  • Saeed Ajmal1 (3b)
  • SR Watson4-1-24-2
  • DP Nannes4-1-27-1

What a game, absolutely riveting. Pakistan did so well to shoot Australia out for 127 but their batting, apart from Kamran, was abysmal against a very determined attack. Tait was quick, very quick, and his three wickets for 13 runs were incredibly crucial to Australia winning. Nannes was Nannes, Johnson came back after a horror first over, and Watson varied his pace and used those cutters to good effect. Smith, the rookie, struck two big blows on debut. Australia's fielding was sharp and Pakistan choked. Kamran's blazing fifty had them on course, despite four early wickets, but Pakistan managed to let this one go against a superb outfit. After Kamran's 64 the next best was 21 from his brother.

So Pakistan leave Australia without a single win. Another poor tour Down Under. Hope you've enjoyed our coverage of this series. Thanks for your company. That is all we have for you but remember, tomorrow is a Test match between the two best sides and in a couple days Australia will go back to playing West Indies. There is also the series in New Zealand going on. We will bring you every ball of every game live, so do come back and see us. Don't forget to check out our Facebook page - and we just built a new toolbar which you may like. Or a very nifty Chrome extension, if that's your bag. See you soon.

Watson to Mohammad Asif, FOUR runs, well he gets four but that is not enough! Asif backs away and flat-bats a short ball over mid-on four four but Australia win a thriller to sweep the Tests, ODIs, and Twenty20 of what has been a pretty one-sided series, congratulations to them

Clarke and Watson talk shop. The Pakistan dug out is tense.

Watson to Saeed Ajmal, 1 leg bye, makes room and charges out to a short ball, which slams into his helmet and runs wide of backward point, they just get one to that means Asif needs six to tie

Watson to Saeed Ajmal, no run, swing and a miss! Watson goes for a short ball into Ajmal who heaves and cannot make contact

Pakistan need a four, or a six ... and fast!

Watson to Mohammad Asif, 1 run, short of a length again, angling across Asif who pokes and runs it down to third man

Watson to Saeed Ajmal, 1 run, slogs at one short of a length and gets some bat on ball, scampering down as Watson and midwicket run to field

Wow, wow, wow. What a dramatic collapse. Ajmal will face.

Watson to Umar Akmal, OUT, he's out, would you believe he is out! Umar clears his front leg to get some elevation and slogs across the line to a length ball, picking out Warner running in from wide long-on who takes a low catch and throws his arms up in celebration

The task comes down to Watson. Umar on strike. Superb scenes. Field spread.
