Pakistan would be eying to end the series against Australia unbeaten in UAE while following two T20I wins, another victory would also steer Host to complete the whitewash (PTV Sports).
If Pakistan wins at Dubai on Sunday in last T20I, it would make a history for itself as never before in T20Is/ODIs series with three games at least, green shirts whitewashed Australia.

It’s also to remind here that Pakistan won the two-match Test series against Australia 1-0, and then won three-match T20I series as well with two consecutive victories in first two games.
The third and last T20I will also take place at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, wherein the last match was played.
PTV Sports telecasted all matches of Pakistan-Australia Series
Unlike the first T20I at Abu Dhabi, Australia didn’t surrender to Pakistan easily in second T20I and fought hard. Though two dropped catches of Glenn Maxwell also helped Australia to push the match closer; otherwise, margin of victory could remain wide enough.
Despite the early loss of Fakhar Zaman, Pakistan had again developed an excellent platform to accelerate the innings in second T20I. Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez with 45 and 40 runs respectively made it happen but yet following batsmen could not utilize it.
Eventually Pakistan’s innings ended with 147 runs for six in stimulated overs.
Things didn’t even alter as much for Australia as well, as like the first T20I, it again faced a swift top-order collapse. Australia’s three top-order batsmen got out for just 31 runs.
Much lucky Glenn Maxwell showcased his talent with the bat, and scored 52 runs off 37 balls with two sixes. However, it didn’t prove to be enough and whole Australian team could score 136 runs for eight in 20 overs, 12 short of a victory.
For Pakistan, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shadab Khan picked up two wickets each whereas one wicket each went to Imad Wasim and Mohammad Hafeez.
Imam Wasim bagged another Man of the Match award for delivering an economical performance with the bowl.
Imad Wasim’s spell 4-1-8-1 today is the most economical four-over spell by any spin bowler in T20Is against Australia. He gets his 5th player-of-the-match award, the most by any Pakistani since his debut. #PakvAus
