Commentary (Australia innings)

That's it from us. Thanks for joining. The 3-match T20I series starts from 5th September. Do join us then. Till then good bye, take care.

Mitchell Starc is the Man of the Series for picking up 9 wickets in the series, which included a 5-wicket haul in the first game and 4-wicket haul today. In both the games, Australia were victorious.

Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match for his crucial innings in the middle of 65 runs off just 72 balls.

Pakistan's decision to go with 4 spinners didn't quite work out. We could have a new hero in the name of Glenn Maxwell, who played wonderfully in the end.

Once again it was Michael Hussey who played an anchor for Australia to chase the total. Pakistan missed their chances, didn't take the review against Hussey which proved them costly. Dropped the man who scored the winning runs for Australia in his debut series, missed a stumping chance against him as well. All this lead to another series win for Australia against Pakistan as the Asian team had tried for their first series win against the Aussies in the last 10 years.

Australia win the series 2-1. Wonderful cricket all round from both the teams but Australia over came the spin threat and won comfortably in the end. Restricted Pakistan at 244/7 earlier, when came out to bat, we saw a new opening combination of Warner and David Hussey. Both of them gave a positive start. Michael Clarke departed at a crucial juncture and there was a small collapse from Australia in the middle.

It is a wide ball alright but there is an appeal for the stumping too. It is referred upstairs and replays show that Clarke is gone by a mile.

Commentary (Pakistan innings)

Credit to the bowlers for holding their nerves in spite of being carved around initially. Starc enjoyed a good outing once again with 4 scalps while Johnson was the most economical. Considering that this Aussie line-up is struggling, 244 looks to be a competitive total. Join us after the break to find out if the Aussies can make a fist out of this.

Great comeback from Australia to limit Pakistan to under 250. When Hafeez and Jamshed were going great guns, 300 looked to be on but Jamshed's dismissal triggered a collapse and the home side could not recover. Hafeez was brilliant for his 78 while the middle order could not capitalize on its starts.

49.6 D Christian to A Rehman, Landed outside off, 108.8 kph, heaved towards mid-wicket for a run. PAKISTAN FINISH ON 244/7! 244/7

49.4 D Christian to A Rehman, Goes for the cheeky paddle scoop again but misses and is hit on the pads. The ball rolls down to short fine leg and as the bowler quietly appeals for LBW, the batsmen take a leg bye. 242/7

49.3 D Christian to A Ali, Landed on a length outside off, smashed down to long off for a single. 241/7

49.2 D Christian to A Rehman, Good length delivery outside off, 109.5 kph, Rehman looks to run it down but misses. The batsmen go for the bye and Matthew Wade misses the run out chances at both ends. Almost concedes more as overthrows but the batsmen have backed up too far and do not run. 240/7

Michael Clarke is having an animated chat with the umpires.

49.1 D Christian to A Rehman, FOUR! Cheeky shot! Smart thinking from Rehman. Full outside off, 124.4 kph, Rehman gets across and scoops it over short fine leg for a boundary! Great start to the over! Half century up for Christian with the ball. 239/7

That's it from us. Thanks for joining. The 3-match T20I series starts from 5th September. Do join us then. Till then good bye, take care.

Mitchell Starc is the Man of the Series for picking up 9 wickets in the series, which included a 5-wicket haul in the first game and 4-wicket haul today. In both the games, Australia were victorious.

Michael Hussey is the Man of the Match for his crucial innings in the middle of 65 runs off just 72 balls.

Pakistan's decision to go with 4 spinners didn't quite work out. We could have a new hero in the name of Glenn Maxwell, who played wonderfully in the end.

Once again it was Michael Hussey who played an anchor for Australia to chase the total. Pakistan missed their chances, didn't take the review against Hussey which proved them costly. Dropped the man who scored the winning runs for Australia in his debut series, missed a stumping chance against him as well. All this lead to another series win for Australia against Pakistan as the Asian team had tried for their first series win against the Aussies in the last 10 years.

Australia win the series 2-1. Wonderful cricket all round from both the teams but Australia over came the spin threat and won comfortably in the end. Restricted Pakistan at 244/7 earlier, when came out to bat, we saw a new opening combination of Warner and David Hussey. Both of them gave a positive start. Michael Clarke departed at a crucial juncture and there was a small collapse from Australia in the middle.

46.6 J Khan to G Maxwell, SIX! Australia win by 3 wickets! Glenn Maxwell, the youngster has delivered! Landed just outside off at 99.3 kph, much slower delivery from Junaid, Maxwell lofts it cleanly over long on and Australia wins! Fantastic way to sign off! 250/7

46.1 J Khan to D Christian, OUT! Length delivery outside off at 129.5 kph, Christian tries to hit straight down the ground but miscues. The ball is high up in the air and Imran Farhat takes an easy catch at extra covers. Australia 238/7, require 7 runs from 23 balls. 238/7

The players are out in the middle. James Pattinson to start off proceedings. Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed are the openers. Hafeez to face. All set! Here we go!

Australia - Warner, Wade(wk), M.Clarke(c), M.Hussey, D.Hussey, Bailey, Maxwell, Christian, M.Johnson, Starc and J.Pattinson. Pakistan - Hafeez, Jamshed, Azhar Ali, Shafiq, Misbah(c), U.Akmal, K.Akmal(wk), S.Afridi, Rehman, S.Ajmal and J.Khan.

Team information - Australia are unchanged from the previous game. Pakistan have got Shahid Afridi back, which means that Sohail Tanvir misses out. The teams coming up shortly...

Misbah says that after the last game he was pretty sure that Pakistan should bowl first as they never know about the dew over here. Hopes that, as in the first game, there wouldn't be dew tonight. About his bowling combination, he informs that they have gone with 2 spinners, 4 part-timers and one fast bowler. Also says that Australia's strength is fast bowling and his team's strength is spin. Agrees that Australia are one of the top teams in the world but his is also a good side.

Clarke says that he knows there is a little bit of dew here and that has what has influenced his decision. Hopes that the ball skids on to the bat in the second innings. Adds that there are not any plans to go steady at the top and both openers have been given the freedom to play their natural game.

TOSS - Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq spins the coin, Australian captain Michael Clarke calls Tails and it is a Tail. AUSTRALIA WILL BOWL.

PITCH REPORT - It looks a bare track. Not a sign of grass at all. The pitch is bound to take plenty of spin.

WEATHER - Another hot and humid day in the Middle East. All the best to the players.

5.6 M Starc to N Jamshed, Terrific piece of fielding from James Pattinson! Oh my word... that is some stuff from the fast bowler. Short on middle from Starc, Jamshed goes for the hook but gets a top edge. The ball flies down to third man and crosses the ropes but it has not touched the ground yet. Pattinson charges across to his right and just before he can touch the ground outside the boundary, pulls it back in. Desperate stuff. Michael Clarke likes that. Two runs taken. 28/0

Rehman into the attack, replacing Junaid Khan.

3.5 M Hafeez to D Warner, Full on middle, watchfully defended. 19/0

3.4 M Hafeez to D Warner, Oho! What was he trying to do? Warner shapes up for the switch hit and Hafeez fires it on the leg stump which is now Warner's off stump. Dabs it to the off side which would have otherwise been his leg side. Confusing? Okay, it is a dot ball. 19/0
