AUS vs PAK, 1st T20I, Australia v Pakistan Twenty20 Series 2019, 03 Nov 2019
BALL BY BALL
Rvel: As Wahab Riaz remarked the incessant rain as 'blessing in disguise', he couldn't encapsulate the situation better before going off the field as Pakistan would take a 'No Result' gleefully, given they were outgunned by the belligerent Australia opening pair
The rain has got a bit gentler but we have only got about 20 minutes from the cut-off time and after 12 pm PST, the game will be abandoned if the players are not back on the field
Rvel: Can Pakistan spring a surprise upon comeback? At the moment, Finch and Warner have annihilated the bowling attack and made them look quite ordinary. However, Babar is yet to introduce spin into the mix - which could be a turning point for the touring party
It's pouring down quite heavily at the moment.
The rain has come to halt the carnage initiated by Finch and Warner.
3.1 - M Amir to A Finch
Hoys an off-cutter outside off, he chops it down wide of third man where the lanky Irfan swoops to his left and gathers the ball, leaks a crucial double.
Ov 3: 6 4 4nb 6 0 4 1 ( 26 Runs ) | require 80 runs from 72 Balls
2.6 - M Irfan to A Finch
Nails a good yorker on the toes, Finch scuffs a drive back to Irfan and the skyscraper has to come all the way down to stop that but it wasn't stopped cleanly, ricochets to cover and Finch pounces on the fumble
Wahab gave chase all the way to the fence but fumbles and then fields the ball with his feet over the boundary rope.
25 off the over and there is still one delivery to go.
2.5 - M Irfan to A Finch
Attempted yorker gone horribly wrong, Finch unleashes a picturesque straight drive and Wahab ran across at long-on but couldn't prevent the boundary, he flicked the ball inside the rope but was in contact while plucking it out at the boundary
2.4 - M Irfan to A Finch
Slings a fuller length delivery just outside off, he bunts it down to mid-off. A rare dot.
Costly no ball with Finch in a hurry.
2.3 - M Irfan to A Finch
Clubbed! Spots the length early, leans back and shovels it using lots of bottom hands to send it to the top tier.
2.3 - M Irfan to A Finch
Three boundaries in a row and it's a no ball as well! Double whammy for Pakistan but on the replay it shows the landing foot was not that far from the popping crease, lovely smack out of the middle of the bat nevertheless, dribbles away to the extra cover boundary.
Too full, clipped wide of mid wicket.
2.2 - M Irfan to A Finch
Hacked away all along the carpet to the midwicket boundary.
Short and Finch just steps back and launches that into the crowd.
2.1 - M Irfan to A Finch
Short and fired on middle stump, Finch pounded it hard back over the square leg for a maximum.
