Australia v Pakistan: Tourists annihilated after 'embarrassing' batting collapse records unwanted record

Top order sizzles as Australia continue domination - Cricbuzz

Earlier, Babar Azam's unbeaten 68 off 55 balls had anchored Pakistan to 155-8 after Australia won the toss and opted to field first. During the powerplay, Australia lost their top four batsmen followed by a run out of Ben McDermott for a duck, and a drastic caught behind of Alex Carey.

Australian skipper Aaron Finch says he deserves plenty of blame for a woeful T20 loss to Pakistan that he likened to a slow-motion auto crash.

Only twice have Australia scored fewer runs in a T20 worldwide, making just 79 against England at Southampton in 2005 and 86 in a defeat by India at Dhaka four years ago.

It did not stop there as Australia slipped to 22 for 6 in the sixth over and the Abu Dhabi crowd went insane.

Azam struck an unbeaten 68 while Wasim capped a return to worldwide cricket with three wickets as Pakistan crushed Australia by 66 runs on Wednesday.

Australia suffered a Test series defeat to Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates last week after they were twice dismissed cheaply and were embarrassed again in the shortest format on Wednesday. However, Imad Wasim destroyed Australia´s top order.

Broncos GM John Elway met with Kelly following the incident and ultimately made a decision to release him Wednesday morning. NFL Network's James Palmer reported that Kelly had been attending teammate Von Miller's Halloween party before the arrest.

"There was no luck there it was pretty embarrassing to be honest", Finch said. "I take full responsibility for that".

For Pakistan, they'll have fewer selection considerations to make ahead of the second T20I at Dubai on Friday if any at all.

The trophy was designed in honour of the T20 series sponsors, biscuit-maker TUC, with captains Sarfraz Ahmed and Aaron Finch posing light-heartedly with the trophy ahead of the start of the series on Thursday.

The match between Pakistan and Australia will start at 9pm Pakistan Standard Time. She was named Player of the Match for her performance with the ball. Our fielding was slightly sloppy, then the batting was terrible.

"Absolutely they'll be looking at changes", Finch said. "Definitely when that happens, when you lose a game so badly, you have to look at everything", he said.

Mohammad Hafeez (39) and Azam shared a 73-run second-wicket stand and dominated the spinners in the middle overs before Australia pegged back Pakistan with five wickets in 10 deliveries for just three runs.
