Dubai, Sep 11: David Warner and Shane Watson smashed a century opening stand and led Australia to a commanding 94-run victory over Pakistan in the third and final Twenty20 match on Monday.
Warner hit 59 off 34 balls and Watson was equally aggressive in scoring 47 in Australia's impressive score of 168-7. Pakistan, already leading 2-0 in the series, stumbled in their run chase at 36-6 before being bowled out for 74 in 19.1 overs. It was Pakistan's heaviest ever defeat in Twenty20s.
After being sent in to bat both Warner and Watson batted aggressively against Pakistan's spinners, who had caused trouble for the Australian batsmen in the previous two losses.
Pakistan were out of reckoning once the top-order crumbled, with seamers Mitchell Starc (3-11) and Patrick Cummins (3-15) taking the bowling honours.
