Babar, Wasim propel Pakistan to biggest T20 win over Australia

Top order sizzles as Australia continue domination - Cricbuzz

Australian captain Aaron Finch won the toss and sent Pakistan in to bat in the first Twenty20 global in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Only a fighting knock of 34 from Nathan Coulter-Nile, the last man out, ensured Australia didn´t succumb to their lowest T20 total.

In the first six overs Pakistan took six wickets and conceded just 26 runs, making it the best bowling powerplay ever in a T20 worldwide. Wasim was well backed by Faheem Ashraf who bowled the unsafe Glenn Maxwell for 2.

Nahida Khan was the only batter to put up a fight as she scored a 32-ball 43 and with the rest of the batters crumbling after her dismissal in the 11th over, an Australian win was the only result possible.

Hopes heroics help West Indies tie second India ODI
The West Indies spinners, especially senior pro Devendra Bishoo, could not deliver on a pitch that offered turn and played slow. Kohli , who will turn 30 next month, was dropped on 44 by West Indies captain Jason Holder off debutant seamer Obed McCoy.

But Hasan Ali produced late fireworks with 14 off three balls in the final over from Coulter-Nile as a total of 22 was added for the ninth wicket, and Australia were soon in all sorts of trouble in their run chase.

Babar held the Pakistan innings together as the hosts reached 155-8, before left arm spinner Imad claimed 3-20 in four overs in his first game in over a year as Australia were bowled out for 89.

"It was just carnage", Finch said.

"That powerplay was horrific.it was like a auto crash in slow motion".

Leading up to this announcement, 4K films had typically cost somewhere between $25 and $30 unless they were on sale. Numerous service's "top films" are £13.99, with the very latest costing £1 more and older titles priced only £7.99.

It was not just spin that brought about Australia's undoing. The two Australian pacemen Billy Stanlake and Andrew Tye, did most of the damage, with three wickets apiece.

Opener Babar Azam top-scored with an unbeaten 68 off 55 balls.

Test squad members Mitch Marsh, Nathan Lyon and Peter Siddle were all overlooked for the series-opener, along with Mitchell Starc who is nursing a tight hamstring and nearly certain to miss the remainder of the series. "Opening the batting, it's my responsibility to get us off to a good start and set up the chase there".

Imad Wasim, playing in his first global match in almost a year caused havoc with his slow left-armers dismissing both openers in the first over and unveiling his new Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired celebration in the process.

He also added that his government would begin cutting aid to the migrants' home countries in retaliation. It was clear Monday, though, that for now it was still growing as migrants rushed to catch up overnight.

Finch also told that their performance in the first T20I was so poor that they should now consider a change in the squad for the second match.
