Pakistan sweeps Australia 3-0 in Twenty20 series

Pakistan to bat first in final T20I against Australia

Australia slumped to a grim whitewash defeat in the Twenty20 cricket series against Pakistan, losing the third and final game in Dubai by 33 runs on Monday (NZT).

Although this is the fourth time that Pakistan defeated their opponents 3-0 in a T20I series in the United Arab Emirates they handed such a crushing defeat to Australia for the first time ever and among all Pakistani fans, former captain Shahid Afridi was also elated. He featured in three unofficial ODIs against New Zealand A in UAE earlier in the month, picking five wickets in three matches at an economy of 4.25.

It ws another clinical performance by the world No.1 Pakistan, who won both the Test and T20I series.

Pakistan veteran Mohammad Hafeez batted well at the tail end of the innings alongside the lower order to finish unbeaten on 32 off 20 balls (three fours, one six) as he shepherded the home team to 150-5 off their 20 overs.

Australia promoted Alex Carey to open and he smashed 20 off just nine balls - but then top-edged Hafeez's first delivery to mid-on, just after the departure of skipper Aaron Finch (1).

Kandahar goes to the polls in Afghan parliamentary vote delayed by violence
But long queues of voters had formed as early as 07: 00 local time (02h30 GMT), the polls opened two hours late. These legislative elections are the first in Afghanistan to make use of biometric devices at voting centers.


Imad has been rewarded for his four wickets with a gain of 14 places that has put him in 10th position.

Pakistan will remain in the UAE where they will play the touring New Zealand side in three T20Is and as many ODIs and Tests beginning with the first T20 global on October 31.

In the first match, the Green Caps registered a comfortable 66-run triumph in Dubai on Wednesday, while on Friday, they registered a rather relaxed 11-run win despite Glenn Maxwell heroics.

Again in all three T20I matches, the Australian bowlers were able to restrict the Pakistanis within gettable totals, but it was the visiting batsmen who failed miserable to capitalize on the bowlers' success to bring up the victory. However, this result will help New Zealand move ahead of England and Australia in the third position.
