Twitter reacts as Pakistan defeat Australia to win the T20 Tri-series
In the T20 Tri-series final, Pakistan got the better of Australia to win the series and cement their position as the No.1 T20I side in the world.
It was Australia who won the toss and decided to bat first. The Baggy Greens racked up a total of 183, inspired by an impressive 76-run knock of D'Arcy Short.
In reply, Pakistan reached the target after enduring some early hiccups, courtesy of a splendid 91-run innings by Fakhar Zaman.
Here's how Twitter reacted to the all-important final.

Well won @TheRealPCB! Deserved winners of the Tri-series. Australia used up all their luck, yet couldn't win, tells you who was the better team. Well done, Fakhar Zaman on another final winning knock. #AUSvPAK— Nikhil 🏏 (@CricCrazyNIKS) July 8, 2018

Shoaib Malik is the Andres Iniesta of Pakistan cricket team. Pure gem! #AUSvPAK— koshain (@anicatehic) July 8, 2018
Those who questioned Pakistan's number one position in T20 Rankings. Pakistan in the last two years have beaten England in England, New Zealand in NZ (when NZ were number one), World T20 Champions WI at their home and now Australia in the final. #PakvAus— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) July 8, 2018
Fakhar should just play white ball finals.— Fakhar Zamennis (@DennisCricket_) July 8, 2018
If the FIFA World Cup final uses a white soccer ball, bring him in off the bench. He'll win you the match.
First time in 28 years that Pakistan have won a FINAL against Australia in international cricket. Last time was in Sharjah in 1990 (when Wasim Akram took a hat-trick). Between Sharjah and Harare, Pakistan lost 8 "finals" to Australia. #BigWin #PakvAus— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) July 8, 2018
Pakistan wins and take the trophy home. This T20 series has shown that how brilliantly this team is evolving into a world class unit. They’re still making mistakes but this confidence being injected by Mickey & Sarfaraz will only make them good. Golden run continues.. #PakvAUS— Sawera Pasha (@sawerapasha) July 8, 2018
In think the problem for Australia was that this was a game of cricket and Australia aren't very good at that game.— Fakhar Zamennis (@DennisCricket_) July 8, 2018
Hooorrraaa ... Pakistan is rising and rising we defeated one of the Worlds most mighty Cricketing nations today Weldone Sarfraz,Fakhar,Shoaib and all other members of the Green team who defeated Australia in Harare T20— Hamid Mir (@HamidMirPAK) July 8, 2018
Well played Pakistan- deserve to be number 1. Clinical performance & how Sarfraz & Fakhar pressed after being reduced to 2-2 was most impressive. Well done 👍— Dr. Nauman Niaz (@DrNaumanNiaz) July 8, 2018
