Pakistan was under a lot of pressure after failing to make it to the final of Asia Cup 2018. They were also crushed by India in two face-offs during the six-nation tournament.

Apart from a convincing victory against Afghanistan, they couldn't play as per the expectations and reputation, considering the tournament was played in UAE, their second home. 

The men in green received a lot of criticism, but they have left media and critics tight-lipped after a brilliant performance against Australia. 

They outplayed Australia in the Test and T20 series. While Aussies showed some fight in the first Test and lost the series by 1-0, in T20I, they were whitewashed by the hosts. Pakistan beat Australia by 33 runs in the third and final T20I to complete the 3-0 series win.

Shoaib Malik, the Pakistan cricketer who was part of the victory, took Twitter to answer those who pointed finger at Pakistan cricket. 

In the 3rd T20I, Batting first, Pakistan scored 150/5 in their 20 overs while Australia could only manage 117 all out in reply. Babar Azam struck a 50 and Mohammad Hafeez gave an all-around performance.
