1
Mohammad Amir to Ashton Turner. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, mis-fielded by Wasim, fielded by Sohail. Australia have cruised to victory by seven wickets in Canberra, making light work of the target set by Pakistan. Steve Smith was at his dominant best, unleashing a wide range of quirky and belligerent shots to take command of the chase after David Warner and Aaron Finch fell inside the powerplay. The right-hander finished unbeaten on 80 to put the hosts 1-0 up in the series. Earlier on Ashton Agar and Pat Cummins were parsimonious with the ball, although Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed helped the tourists to a score that had looked out of reach at one stage with some lusty blows. Attention will now shift west to Perth where the series will conclude on Friday night.

FOUR! Mohammad Amir to Steven Smith. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep point for 4 runs. Oh my word, this is the shot of the night and possibly the entire year. Smoked with disdain off the back foot, ridiculous poise and power by Smith. No one else in the world is capable of hitting quirky strokes like that. He is a genius.
