Imad spins Pakistan to victory against Australia in first Twenty20
27 October 2018, 06:59 | Tracey Rhodes
The Australian women's team defeated Pakistanby 64 runs in the first T20 of the three-match series at the Kinrara Academy Oval in Malaysia on Thursday.
Australia have been humiliated by Pakistan in the T20 series-opener, slumping to a 66-run defeat after being skittled for just 89. Nathan Coulter-Nile's 34 helped Australia go past its previous lowest T20 score of 79 made against England at Southampton in 2005 before he was the last man to be dismissed. A target of 196 was always going to be daunting for Pakistan and they lost their first wicket in the opening over of the chase to make matters worse.
Australia:Aaron Finch (c), Mitch Marsh (vc), Alex Carey (vc), Ashton Agar, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Chris Lynn, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Ben McDermott, Darcy Short, Peter Siddle, Billy Stanlake, Mitch Starc, Andrew Tye, Adam Zampa.
During the run-chase, the Australian batsmen could not gain the momentum they needed as they kept losing wickets at regular wickets.
Sarfraz Ahmed the captain was delighted at the overall performance.
Their T20 skipper Aaron Finch said his team was motivated enough to win the series. The second wicket stand between Babar and Mohammad Hafeez (39), top scorer in his country's first ever t20 worldwide, against England at Bristol in 2006, prospered and took the score to 105 in the 14 over and their side well on course to reach the 200 mark.
'Caravan' of United States migrants swells to 5,000
The Mexican Interior Ministry said on Saturday that 640 Honduran migrants have requested refuge in Mexico. Some Mexican residents along the road cheered for the group or handed out bananas, tortillas and water.
"I had the responsibility to get us off to a good start and set up the chase", Finch said. Azam's 55-ball knock was laced with five boundaries and one six, while Hafeez scored two boundaries and as many sixes during his 30-ball 39.
The second and the third matches will be played in Dubai on Friday and Sunday. "I think we were a little bit one-dimensional while batting, but that s a learning experience and I would say Pakistan have got a lot of variety in their bowling".
