Australia have flexed their muscles on home soil, cruising to a series victory against number one ranked Pakistan with a 10 wicket victory at Optus Stadium on Friday night.

The home side have traditionally struggled in the shortest format of the game but are looking to find some form ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia next year.

After a comfortable 7-wicket win at Manuka Oval in Canberra, Australia dominated in Perth to wrap up the series 2-0. The victory comes on the back of belting Sri Lanka in the proceeding T20 series.

The home team made two changes to the side after announcing earlier in the week that star pace bowl Pat Cummins would be rested ahead of the upcoming Test series.

This saw Sean Abbott make his international T20 return after five years while Billy Stanlake was also brought into the team at the expense of Adam Zampa.

Pakistan rung the changes after the heavy defeat bringing in Imam ul-Haq, Khushdil Shah, Muhammad Musa and Mohammad Hasnain.

Aussie skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bowl first in the warm conditions at Optus Stadium.

As they had throughout both series, they managed to strike early with Mitchell Starc trapping Babar Azam lbw before crashing a full ball into Mohammad Rizwan’s stumps the very next ball.

Abbott also managed to claim a wicket in his second over, showing plenty of emotion on his return to the side. His first wicket leaving the visitors in trouble at 3/22.
