Pakistan looks to whitewash Australia in third T20I

"A lot of them have come from four-day red-ball cricket so getting back into white-ball and T20 especially"- Mc Millan

Australia continued to lose wickets regularly and an unlucky Ben McDermott - who top-scored with 21 off 20 balls, including two fours and one six - was run out for the third time in in the three-match series.

Azam excelled with the bat throughout the innings as he reached his second half-century of the three-match series on his way to earning himself a well-deserved Player of the Series award.

The third and final match of the T20 series between Pakistan and the Southern Stars will take place at the same venue in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.

"We just panicked a little bit again", Finch said.

In contrast, if Pakistan and the Windies win all their matches, Pakistan will rise to 138 points and only one point will separate second-ranked India (119) from fourth-ranked Australia (118).

They have suffered four defeats in a row against Pakistan across a combination of the longest and shortest formats. "You back yourself while chasing under 150, you back your batsmen to get the side over the line but it didn't happen". Babar, who captained Pakistan at the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2012, had topped the batting charts for the first time in his career in January following the series against New Zealand. However, Pakistani openers Babar Zaman and Sahibzada Farhan provided great start to the team. Azam stayed on the crease in the entire innings batting for all 20 overs.

Farhan, dismissed for a first-ball duck in his only previous match against Australia in Harare in July, hit a 38-ball 39.
