Pakistan set 107-run target for Australia in final T20

Australia have won the toss and made a decision to field first in the third and final T20I at Perth Stadium.

After a frugal first over that cost just three runs, Pakistan captain Babar Azam sent the towering left-armer to the rope for his first boundary of the day in Starc's second over. He was joined by Mohammad Rizwan who was bowled out for a duck. Their places could be taken by Khushdil Shah, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hasnain and Muhammad Musa Khan. Having scored consecutive half-centuries in the first two matches, Azam was dismissed cheaply today despite him opting for a review.

The Australians included Sean Abbott for his first worldwide in five years, and also recalled Billy Stanlake at the expense of Adam Zampa in expectation of a bouncy pitch.

The series opener ended without a result due to rain in Sydney before Steve Smith's masterclass helped Australia win the next game in Canberra.

Given the start that Australia have registered, they have a chance to clinch the series 2-0 and extent their unbeaten spree at home this season.
