Dubai: Australia beat Pakistan by six wickets to win the one-off Twenty20 international in Dubai on Sunday. (Scorecard)
Off-spinner Glenn Maxwell took a career best 3-15 and debutant Cameron Boyce (2-10) condemned Pakistan to their fifth lowest Twenty20 international total of 96-9 in 20 overs.
Australia knocked off the target for the loss of four wickets in 14 overs with opener David Warner hitting a robust 39-ball 53 not out with four fours and three sixes.
Of the Pakistani batsmen only debutant Saad Nasim (25), tail-enders Wahab Riaz (16) and Raza Hasan (13 not out) came good in an innings which only had four boundaries and no sixes.
The two teams will now play three one-day internationals with the first match in Sharjah on Tuesday.
