PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Pat Cummins

44.4Zampa to Hasnain

W
OUT! Decision overturned and that is the end of the match. Full length delivery on off, turning in for the right-hander. Hasnain fails to read the googly. He fails to connect the bat to the ball while defending. The ball hits his back leg. Zampa appeals but the umpire turns it down. Finch has a chat and then takes it upstairs. Hawk Eye shows the ball will hit the leg stump. A comfortable 80-run victory for Australia.

44.3Zampa to Khan

W
OUT! Caught! Number 9 falls and Zampa has his third in the span of 9 balls. Tossed up outside off, Junaid comes down the track and swings hard but is nowhere close to the ball. It spins away, takes the top edge and goes high in the air. Carey calls for it and takes it reverse-cup.

42.1Zampa to Wasim

W
OUT! Imad falls now. And the last hope for Pakistan going back to the hut. A flighted delivery on off, Imad falls for the trap. Dances down the pitch and misses the ball completely. Alex Carey just whips the bails off. Hang on! Replays show us that he had collected the ball in front of the stumps but it has gone unnoticed. Not that it would have mattered much in the context of the game, but it should have been spotted.
