The success that Sarfaraz Ahmed's T20I side continues to achieve as they strengthen their number one standing in the shortest format of the game is no fluke.

Finch, the captain of the Australia T20I side, also had a remarkable run during the tournament in Zimbabwe, scoring 68*, 172 - a world record in the format - 16, 3 and 47.

"We know they're an emotional team, and they're a highly skilled team", Australia captain Finch said. Finchy has definitely put his best foot forward in this series. So we'll look at that. We'll look at all our staff. "We'll look at everything to make sure we keep flying forward, as is the expectation of the Australian cricket team".

Langer admitted ODI skipper Tim Paine's future in the team was up in the air following Australia's 5-0 whitewash defeat to England.

Past year he was no way near Pakistan cricket, now Fakhar Zaman has become an integral part of the team, single-handedly winning games for the green shirts.

"He's been brilliant", Langer said. Both the batsmen and the bowlers have had a great time playing here. Finch called him "a thorn in our side" earlier this week, today adding: "We've all seen the form that Fakhar has been in". Along with head coach Arthur, whose insistence for his side to play a new brand of cricket where fitness and performance go hand-in-hand, Inzamam has created the environment necessary for Pakistan to produce winning performances on a regular basis. All credit to Pakistan to force Australia to lose their way from 146-2 off 15.3 overs to 183-8 off 20 overs. You're always going to be under pressure regardless of how many wickets you take if they're some of your stats.

Australia's next scheduled assignment is an ODI series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in October.

"I thought we should have got around 200 but we just kept losing the wickets, which stalled the momentum", Finch said.

He was also declared the player of the series on the back of his superb display throughout the series. They're the number one team in the world. He has been well-assisted by Billy Stanlake, who has seven wickets in the series, and Jhye Richardson, who has accounted for six wickets. "The way he's batted throughout the series, it's good for us, and good for his career". We've shown our inexperience over the last six weeks, but we'll be much better for it.

There was no change in the top three all-rounders, with Australian Glenn Maxwell leading the field.

"They've got a lot of very risky players", Finch said of Pakistan.
