Dubai: Sohail Tanvir guided Pakistan to a crushing seven-wicket victory over Australia in their first Twenty20 match on Wednesday, restricting the opposition to their second lowest total ever in the format.
Australia were all out for 89, while Pakistan cruised to 90 for three with 31 balls to spare. It was Australia’s lowest T20 score since it scored 79 against England in 2005.
“We were very sure of our plans and today everybody responded well,” Pakistan captain Mohammed Hafeez said. “The bowlers did the job for us to be honest.”
