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.

Shadab Khan to Coulter-Nile, OUT, 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
