    So that is it from this game! It is now a 2-match T20I series as the first game ended in a no result. The second match takes place on the 5th of November at 1910 local (0810 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

    So it has been a frustrating day for the cricketing fans! Right from the start we have had rain. First the heavens opened up just after the toss but that cleared quickly and we started on time. Australia though dominated throughout. They were on top before the first rain break and remained on top even after resumption. Finch, their skipper, came out all guns blazing, took the attack to the opposition bowlers and smashed them all around the park. In no time the Australians got to 41 and had it not been for the rain, it would have probably been a stroll in the park for the hosts.

    So the inevitable has happened! The GAME HAS BEEN CALLED OFF! Pakistan will breathe a huge sigh of relief as one would probably say they got away with one here. It was Australia's game to lose as they needed only 78 in 71 balls.

    Update 1748 local (0648 GMT) - Still no news from the centre as the rain refuses to relent. The time is running out as the chances are bleak of the game resuming anytime soon.

    Update 1718 local (0618 GMT) - A pat on the back for me! I just wrote that rain is around the corner and here it comes. The players make their way back in. We are still 11 balls away from this game having a result.

    2 3.1
    Mohammad Amir to Aaron Finch

    Good length and on off, Finch guides it past point and takes two.

    Over: 3 | 26 Runs
    1 2.6
    Mohammad Irfan to Aaron Finch

    Length and on off, Finch pushes this length ball back to the bowler who fails to field it in his follow through. The batsmen take a single off the misfield there. Massive over for Australia as they take 26 off Mohammad Irfan's over.

    4 2.5
    Mohammad Irfan to Aaron Finch

    FOUR! Good effort in the field by Wahab Riaz. Irfan dishes out another fuller one outside off, Finch this time drives him through the line past mid off. Wahab gives the chase and manages to stop it just near the ropes as he went over it. But not to his liking to push the ball away further from the ropes he fails to get himself out from the other side of the boundary. The umpires take it upstairs and the replays are conclusive that his hands are in contact with the ball. So a boundary earned for Finch and Aussies.

    It has gotten dark out there! Rain might just be around the corner now.

    0 2.4
    Mohammad Irfan to Aaron Finch

    Finally a dot. This time Finch pushes this length ball to mid off.
