Fall of wickets: 1-93 (Sahibzada Farhan, 12.5 ov), 2-97 (Babar Azam, 13.1 ov), 3-126 (Shoaib Malik, 16.4 ov), 4-140 (Asif Ali, 18.2 ov), 5-141 (Faheem Ashraf, 18.4 ov)
12.5 to Sahibzada Farhan, Tye holds on! Farhan wanted the release shot, but couldn't time it at all. Loses one hand on the bat, and the mistimed slice goes to long off. 93/1
13.1 to Babar Azam, another one! Chops on. Fuller outside off, and he drives away from his body. The ball zips in, and takes the inside of his bat. Massive wicket. 97/2
16.4 to Shoaib Malik, great response! Slower through the air, and spinning away. Malik looks to nudge it towards the leg side, but the leading edge takes it to Finch at cover. 126/3
18.2 to Asif Ali, holes out! A brilliant catch from Coulter-Nile. This was full on off, and in the slot. It's Asif's misfortune that he couldn't get it off the bat's middle. The fielder tracks the ball with one eye and ensures his feet are inside the boundary with the other. Taken in the Aussie-Cup style. 140/4
18.4 to Faheem Ashraf, short on middle, and Faheem has pulled this down Tye's throat at deep backward square. Off the bat's top edge, and Tye makes no mistake despite the rain. 141/5

Fall of wickets: 1-24 (Aaron Finch, 1.5 ov), 2-24 (Alex Carey, 2.1 ov), 3-60 (Chris Lynn, 7.1 ov), 4-62 (Ben McDermott, 7.4 ov), 5-75 (Glenn Maxwell, 10.1 ov), 6-94 (Mitchell Marsh, 14.3 ov), 7-99 (D'Arcy Short, 15.1 ov), 8-99 (Nathan Coulter-Nile, 15.2 ov), 9-108 (Andrew Tye, 17.6 ov), 10-117 (Adam Zampa, 19.1 ov)
1.5 to AJ Finch, he's lofted this straight to mid-on. Looked to clear the infield but got this low on the bat, Hafeez moved low to his right to complete the catch.. 24/1
2.1 to AT Carey, leading edge and it lobs to midwicket. Dolly of a catch. Hafeez drifts this in from round the stumps, Carey looked to nudge this into the leg side, closed the bat face early. This one just stopped on him a touch. Pakistan right back into this.. 24/2
17.6 to AJ Tye, nine down! Full and quick, and Tye's attempted drive takes the inside-edge and straight into Sarfraz's gloves. That went so fast, and the keeper had to dive to his left in a flash. 108/9
19.1 to A 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. 117/10
7.1 to CA Lynn, swept from outside off against the turn, but he only manages to hole out to deep midwicket. Fetched it from way outside off, no timing and he ended up dragging this. Poor choice of shot there. Wicket off his first delivery for Shadab and the game is back in the balance.. 60/3
10.1 to GJ Maxwell, straight to long on! Backs away and tries to thump a full-pitched ball into the stands, but it's come off the bat's toe-end, and it doesn't have the power to go beyond the boundary. 75/5
14.3 to MR 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. 94/6
15.1 to DJM 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. 99/7
