Captain Aaron Finch plundered an unbeaten half-century alongside opener David Warner as Australia thrashed Pakistan by 10 wickets in the final T20 International in Perth to wrap up the series.
Australia – who had won the second match by seven wickets in Canberra after the opener in Sydney finished as a no result because of rain – rattled past their victory target of 107 from just 11.5 overs.
Finch finished 52 off 36 balls, which included three sixes, while Warner made a rapid 48 as the hosts reached 109 without loss.
After losing the toss, Pakistan were sent into bat on a fast pitch which offered plenty of bounce as paceman Mitchell Starc struck twice in successive deliveries during the third over.
Captain Babar Azam (six) and recalled opener Imam-ul-Haq (14) both fell cheaply before Iftikhar Ahmed’s rapid 45 helped the tourists post 106 for eight. Kane Richardson also took three wickets for 18.
Looks like Wood *and* Archer at the Wanderers.
Bavuma in. Hamza out. Van der Dussen up to three.
No solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.
England could go all in on pace in Joburg.
This week I want to talk about...
“After that Test cricket will be something that won’t see me.”
Professional but bat-shit crazy.
And all because of the “blueprint”?
