Mohammad Hafeez

Hafeez's form is good

Dominant Pakistan bagged the series against a lacklustre Australian team.

Pakistan rode on Babar Azam's (50) second half-century of the series to post a competitive 150/5 after Sarfraz Ahmed won the toss and chose to bat in Dubai.

Pearce struck again in the eighth with another homer before pitcher Chris Sale closed off the game in the following inning. Only the Yankees (27) and Cardinals (11) have been more successful, and Boston is now tied for third with the Athletics.

Chasing the 151-run target, the Australia batting never recovered from their drubbing in the first match on October 24 when they were castled for 89.

Shoaib Malik's quickfire 18 was the best of the rest as the designated hosts reached 150-5 from their 20 overs - Adam Zampa (1-25) the pick of the Australian bowlers to complete their allocation of four overs, while Mitchell Marsh took 2-6 from his solitary set of six. Both the times, he lost the No.1 ranking to Finch. However, this result will help New Zealand move ahead of England and Australia in the third position. 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.

Pakistan face New Zealand in the three-match series with the first in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday, followed by the last two in Dubai on Friday and Sunday. Azam and Sahibzada Farhan gave Pakistan an excellent start - their opening stand of 99 their highest against Australia in T20 internationals - in 12.5 overs, but Pakistan could not capitalise on that start.
