DUBAI: Australia brought Pakistan down to earth with a thumping 94-run defeat in the third and final Twenty20 international at Dubai Stadium here on Monday. Chasing a daunting 169-run target, Pakistan were all out for 74 — the joint lowest by a Test playing country in all Twenty20s — for their biggest defeat in the history of the shortest form of the game.
Only Nasir Jamshed (17), Yasir Arafat (15) and Abdul Razzaq (13) could reach double figures as Australian pacemen Mitchell Starc (3-11) and Pat Cummins (3-15) ran through the Pakistan batting line-up. Razzaq and Arafat shared the highest partnership of the innings with 20, taking Pakistan past the lowest total in all Twenty20 — 67 by Kenya against Canada in Belfast in 2008. Earlier Warner made a 34-ball 59 with six sixes and a four and Watson hammered five sixes and a boundary.
