Australia beat Pakistan by seven wickets to win the second T20I and go 1-0 up in the three-match series, with Steve Smith clubbing an unbeaten 80.

Pakistan made 150 for six on the back of half-centuries by skipper Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed, with the home team reaching 151 for three with nine balls to spare.

The former Australia T20I skipper was named the player of the match for his batting performance.

“It was nice to be there at the end and get the boys home,” Smith said in the post-match presentation. “I thought the bowlers set it up early. It was probably a 170 wicket I reckon at least. They bowled beautifully. Then it was just about timing the run and fortunately, I was able to do that tonight.”

Australian skipper Aaron Finch went on to praise his team, especially Smith in particular, over the victory.

“I thought we were pretty good all day. The way we kept taking wickets throughout the innings was really important because we know how damaging Pakistan can be in the powerplay or at the end so to get wickets consistently I think was the key to the day. We’ve got guys like Steve, who does what he does better than anyone else in the world.”

Pakistani captain Babar Azam also showered praise on Smith over his performance.

“We are disappointed. Steve Smith took the match away. He played a magnificent innings. It’s very difficult when we lose early wickets. We have to gain momentum again. Credit goes to Iftikhar the way he played. It’s a good knock.”

The first game in Sydney was abandoned due to rain with the final clash in Perth on Friday.
