Babar Azam hit his second half-century of the series as Pakistan defeated Australia by 33 runs in Dubai to complete a 3-0 T20I whitewash.

Pakistan, enjoying an unassailable 2-0 lead, were lifted by Babar Azam who made a 40-ball 50, Sahibzada Farhan (39) while Mohammad Hafeez made a 20-ball 32 not out.

Babar's series aggregate of 163 runs with a strike-rate of a little over 117 has helped him leapfrog Australia captain Aaron Finch, who managed just four runs in three matches, Lokesh Rahul of India and New Zealand's Colin Munro into the coveted number-one position.

The side humbled the Kangaroos by 66 runs in the opening game of the series.

Alyssa Healy's 41-ball 67 not out powered Australia to a comprehensive nine-wicket victory over Pakistan in third and final Women's Twenty20 global here on Monday.

Bibi's case is also high on the agenda of religious hardliners in Pakistan, many of whom are fiercely opposed to her release. Ms Bibi admitted arguing with the women, but always maintained she said nothing blasphemous and was innocent of the charges.

After opting to field, Australia restricted Pakistan to 97/8 there were as many as four run-outs before Healy nearly single-handedly propelled the chase.

Left-arm spinner Jon Holland broke his finger while batting in the second Test but was never likely to be in the mix for national selection during the summer.

"Any time you lose 28 wickets in three games in T20 cricket, that's not going to win you many games at all".

Zampa was the last man to fall as Hasan Ali (2-14) wrapped things up, sending Australia home with their tails between their legs. If Australia can get the duo out early, they can harbour hopes of restricting Pakistan to an even lesser total. The conditions are expected to be warm and dry, but there is a small possibility of showers.

Mitchell Starc has also been picked for the ODIs after sitting out the first two T20s while nursing a tight hamstring.
