Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-95 (Aaron Finch, 9.5 ov), 2-109 (Glenn Maxwell, 11.6 ov), 3-146 (Marcus Stoinis, 15.4 ov), 4-148 (D'Arcy Short, 16.2 ov), 5-166 (Alex Carey, 17.4 ov), 6-176 (Ashton Agar, 18.6 ov), 7-176 (Travis Head, 19.1 ov), 8-177 (Andrew Tye, 19.4 ov)
15.4 to MP Stoinis, full-toss, angling away outside off, Stoinis is forced to reach out for the ball. He carves this low full-toss to sweeper cover, where Malik, after dropping Finch on 0 earlier in the morning, takes it with both hands. 146/3
19.1 to TM Head, Australia continue to lose their way in the end over. Head holes out to long-on. On a length and outside off, Head swings and gets more height as opposed to distance. 176/7
19.4 to AJ Tye, Killer yorker from Amir. It floors the middle stump. Ripper from over the wicket, storms under Tye's swinging bat. Can Australia reach 180?. 177/8
17.4 to AT Carey, Pakistan's fielding veers from ordinary to extraordinary. This rocket drive from Carey seemed destined to fly to the boundary. Instead, Shadab throws himself to his right from mid-off and plucks it out with one hand, inches from the ground. Simply sensational. This was very full and outside off, belted away in the air. Then came Shadab's athletic intervention. What a youtubeable catch. Awesome stuff, Shadab. 166/5
18.6 to AC Agar, bowled'em. That's a bail trimmer. Good length on off stump, Agar swings for the hills... and does not get bat on ball. Hasan clips the off bail to cap his spell with a wicket. 176/6
16.2 to DJM Short, on a length and outside off, Short flays it straight to cover. He stays leg-side of this ball and holes out to Farhan. No celebration from Afridi. Short lost his shape while meeting the ball. 148/4
9.5 to AJ Finch, Finally Pakistan have caught one! Finch backs away outside leg even before Shadab delivers this legbreak outside off, this shortish ball spins away from Finch. He flays it in the air to Farhan, the debutant, who hangs onto the catch with both hands at cover. No fifty for the Finchmeister. 95/1
11.6 to GJ Maxwell, Maxwell swings one straight into the lap of Ali at long-on. Pushed through on middle stump, Maxwell winds up and golf-swings it straight to the man in the deep. Two wickets in three overs for Pakistan. 109/2

Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Sahibzada Farhan, 0.1 ov), 2-2 (Hussain Talat, 0.4 ov), 3-47 (Sarfaraz Ahmed, 5.2 ov), 4-154 (Fakhar Zaman, 15.6 ov)
0.1 to Sahibzada Farhan, Duck for Farhan on T20I debut. What an unfortunate way to go, that too in your first international. Maxwell slides a full ball down the leg side, draws the batsman out of the crease, Farhan falls over, and the keeper whips the bails off. Stumped off a leg-side wide. 2/1
0.4 to Hussain Talat, Maxwell strikes twice in the first over with the new ball. Talat also gone for a duck. Maxwell tosses up this outside off and gets it to break away. Talat drives a long way away from the body and slices a catch to backward point. Dream start to the defence for Maxwell and Australia. 2/2
15.6 to Fakhar Zaman, Zaman holes out to deep backward point. No hundred for him. Zaman shows his cards early and steps away outside leg. The bowler goes shorter and wider outside off. Zaman still reaches out for the ball and slices underneath the ball in the air but straight down the throat of Maddinson, the sub. 154/4
