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.

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

Umar Akmal c Warner b Watson 21 (47m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 84.00

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

19 | 2 Runs 1 Wkt | PAK: 118/8 (10 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 6.21, RRR: 10.00)

  • Umar Akmal21 (24b)
  • Dirk Nannes4-1-27-1
  • Steven Smith4-0-34-2

Nannes rounds off with a wicket. Umar will face. Pakistan need 10 from six balls. Wow.

Nannes to Umar Gul, OUT, bowled and listen to the crowd go wild! Gul walks right across the sticks to about a sixth stump and looks to play some short of bizarre shot to fine leg, but is nowhere near the fuller, straighter ball

Umar Gul b Nannes 10 (7m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

One ball ... Umar has a chat with Gul ...

Nannes to Umar Gul, no run, another swing and a miss as Gul heaves at a short ball
Nannes to Umar Gul, 2 runs, ah, close to a catch! Gul clears his leg and throws the bat on the ball, getting a thick outer edge that flies down toward third man where Tait runs in and slides to his knees but the ball just does not carry

Intense over so far. Pace, bounce and three dot balls.

Nannes to Umar Gul, no run, 144ks, short outside off, Gul swings and connects with air
Nannes to Umar Gul, no run, another short ball, 146ks, Gul sways back as it sails over
Nannes to Umar Gul, no run, short ball, pitches outside leg and dashes across, Gul takes his eyes off it and ducks into it

Nannes will bowl out.

18 | 10 Runs 1 Wkt | PAK: 116/7 (12 runs required from 12 balls, RR: 6.44, RRR: 6.00)

  • Umar Gul8 (3b)
  • Umar Akmal21 (24b)
  • Steven Smith4-0-34-2
  • Mitchell Johnson4-1-24-0

Single to end a dramatic over. A wicket and a six. Smith takes 2 for 34 on debut. Gul will face. Twelve runs needed from 12 balls. Three wickets in hand. Amazing.

Smith to Umar Gul, 1 run, the wrong un, just short of a length, Gul goes back and punches to cover
Smith to Umar Akmal, 1 run, fuller ball drifting into the pads, clipped out to the deep for one
Smith to Umar Gul, 1 run, flatter, shorter ball, and he gets back and punches to cover
Smith to Umar Gul, SIX runs, oh hello, whats this? First ball, and Umar tees off for six over wide long-on, just getting under the loopy delivery and giving it all he's got, amazing shot that

Reward for slowing the pace and looking to invite a shot. Looks a smart bowler, this Smith. Rana should have gone back instead of running out. In walks Gul.

Smith to Naved-ul-Hasan, OUT, stumped by a yard! Smith tossed it up on a length, gets a wee bit of turn, Rana dances down the track and swings, missing by a year, and Haddin does the rest

Naved-ul-Hasan st †Haddin b Smith 1 (7m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Smith to Umar Akmal, 1 run, tossed up, uses his feet and drives down to long-on for one

17 | (maiden) | PAK: 106/6 (22 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 6.23, RRR: 7.33)

  • Naved-ul-Hasan1 (8b)
  • Umar Akmal19 (22b)
  • Mitchell Johnson4-1-24-0
  • Steven Smith3-0-24-1

What a game. Much fun. Two wickets have pulled it back for Australia. Umar is the key.

Johnson to Naved-ul-Hasan, no run, excellent over from Johnson, and the third maiden of the innings! Short of a length, Rana dabs the ball again straight to the captain at backward point
Johnson to Naved-ul-Hasan, no run, goes full and beats the bat as Rana flashes a drive off the front foot

Good over from Johnson so far ...

Johnson to Naved-ul-Hasan, no run, hits a length, Rana pushes off the front foot to cover
Johnson to Naved-ul-Hasan, no run, gets some room and dabs the ball to Clarke at backward point
