Pakistan skipper, Sarfraz Ahmed, starts by crediting the whole team and reckons they outplayed Australia in the whole series. Mentions T20 is not a format where they can relax and they take every game seriously. Appreciates the bowlers for the way they bowled in this series. Further says they would want to carry forward the momentum into the series against New Zealand. Ends by acknowledging Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez for the way they have played.
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says they had a chance in all three games as any target below 160 is chaseable. Admits they lacked partnerships. Credits Pakistan for their fielding. Mentions the bowling was a positive but their batting in the middle overs against spin is where they have to improve. Ends by saying, the series against Sri Lanka and South Africa is not going to be easy.
Man of the Series, Babar Azam, says this was his best innings amongst the three as he changed his game a little today. Adds further he would want to carry forward the form he is in, into the matches coming ahead. Ends by saying the role given to him which was to play throughout suits him and he paced his innings according to the situation.
Man of the Match, Shadab Khan, says he bowled good lines and lengths today. Reckons the ball was skidding more tonight but it was gripping more in the last game. Adds further that he has a game plan for every batsman and it came off well today. Ends by saying he is not angry on his teammates for dropping the catches as he himself dropped one, off his own bowling.
Australia for once, did well at the start but could not capitalize. They maintained pace with the scoring rate but kept losing wickets. They were level with Pakistan after 10 overs but had lost 5 more wickets. They needed one batsman to play a solid innings but that did not happen. Earlier on, after a good opening partnership of 93, Pakistan managed to put on 150 on the board. They looked like getting more but Australia pulled things back. However, the final score proved to be enough for the home team. Stay tuned for the presentation.
Another dominant performance from the hosts. This is the first time Pakistan have ever whitewashed Australia in any format in a 3-match series. What a display by the Men in Green and they continue showing off why they are the no.1 T20I side. Once again, apart from the few dropped catches, they were clinical in the field. Shadab Khan was the pick of the bowlers picking up three wickets. Barring Imad, everyone chipped in with the wickets. They didn't allow any partnerships to build and kept getting regular breakthroughs.
