Pakistan’s poor form continued in Perth today as the hosts gave the Green Shirts a thrashing, winning the T20I series 2-0.
Batting first, Pakistan could only post 106/8 in their 20 overs with Iftikhar Ahmed scoring 45. The innings included 61 dots, which accounts for more than 50% of the total balls faced by the team.
The only six for Pakistan came from the bat of Iftikhar Ahmed off a top edge which flew over the fine leg. Australian pacers Mitchell Starc, Sean Abbot and Kane Richardson took 7 wickets between them.
Pakistan finish with 106-8 from 20 overs.

Chasing the target of 107 for the likes for Australian top order was always going to be a piece of cake and David Warner and Aaron Finch made sure that their team cantered to victory with ease.
It's all over!
