    OUT! Bowled. Shadab Khan to Nathan Coulter-Nile. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, missed to.

    Pakistan have demolished Australia in Abu Dhabi to take a 1-0 lead in the T20I series. Their total of 155/8 was set up by Babar Azam's classy unbeaten 68, with the right-hander carrying his bat through the innings to hold things together. Australia weren't at their best in the field with fumbles and dropped catches littered throughout the innings, but they fought back admirably towards the death. Despite an alarming collapse from 105/1 to 133/8, a late cameo by Hasan Ali lifted the men in green to a competitive looking score. That momentum carried into the field with the result pretty much sealed by the end of the powerplay. Aaron Finch's men sunk to 22/6 as Imad Wasim (3/20) and Faheem Ashraf (2/10) ran amok through the top order. Nathan Coulter-Nile did his best to delay the inevitable, but the batting effort by Australia was fittingly summed up when his bat went flying out of his hands as the stumps were shattered for the final wicket. Let's see if the visitors can bounce back in the 2nd T20I on Friday night.

    OUT! Bowled. Shaheen Afridi to Andrew Tye. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to. Through him with sheer pace, middle stump is flattened. The end is nigh now with Australia nine down. Shaheen punches the air in celebration, he knows victory isn't too far away.

    FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to Andrew Tye. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Ashraf. A rare blemish in this terrific Pakistan performance as Faheem dives over the top of one at mid off.

    OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to Adam Zampa. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Ali. Misjudged by the fielder in the deep but he still manages to cling onto it. Hasan Ali charged in initially but then had to backtrack, in the end it's a fantastic effort to complete the catch just inside the rope. Zampa was looking for an adventurous swipe but got more height than distance on it.

Hasan Ali joins the party for Pakistan, he has his first wicket of the night as Agar can only feather one behind. Agar wanted to hit this really hard and lost his shape a touch, with the cutter gripping in the surface to move away from him.

    FOUR! Hasan Ali to Ashton Agar. Back of a length, down leg side on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Boshed right off the middle of the blade, there's something for the Aussie fans to cheer.

    APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Hasan Ali to Ashton Agar. Back of a length, down leg side on the front foot flick, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Ahmed, appeal made for Caught. The finger is up but Agar reviews immediately. It was an ambitious stroke by the left-hander, looking to whip over the top as Hasan Ali starts a new spell. Replays show it just brushed the leg and not the bat, so technology comes to Agar's rescue.
