Australia and Pakistan T20I series ended up with the home side winning the 3-match series by 2-0 as the first match was rained out. The visitors were pummeled in the remaining two games, as the opposition batsmen made merry against the inexperienced bowlers of the visiting side. Steve Smith was named Man of the Series for his amazing 80* in the second match.
For the Men in Green, it was a frustrating outing all the three times, as the batting failed to stand tall against a rampaging Australia bowling lineup with Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Kane Richardson and Sean Abbott running through the top order and then Adam Zampa and Ashton Agar stifling the middle order. Poor fielding didn’t exactly help the Pakistani cause, as they gave David Warner lives in the 3rd T20I, which left the fans pulling their hair.
Mohammad Hasnain leaves Mohammad Amir furious
Mohammad Amir was the only bowler who looked getting the Australian openers out and he had beaten Warner twice with amazing deliveries. The plan was set and Hasnain was placed at the third man for the finale. However, Hasnain made the mistake of being inside almost five to six yards ahead of the boundary rope which resulted in a missed chance and six for the Aussie opener.
This left the left-arm seamer Amir seething and he reacted as any bowler who had worked hard for a wicket would. His reactions were captured by the cricket.com.au and shared on their Twitter account with the caption “Amir’s not happy with Hasnain#AUSvPAK”

Meanwhile, the no.1 team in T20Is, Pakistan has seen only turmoil in the format given that they lost the 3-match series 0-3 against a second-string Sri Lanka side at home, which led to Sarfaraz Ahmed losing his captaincy and his place in the side. Misbah-Ul-Haq became the head coach, batting coach and chief selector of the Pakistani team and Babar Azam was named T20I captain.
The performances of the team have let the fans down, given that they have now lost 5 T20I matches with one rained out. Now all hopes rest on the two-match Test series that begins from November 21 with the first match at Gabba in Brisbane and second Test at Adelaide, which will be played under lights.
