Australia have won the toss and made a decision to field first in the third and final T20I at Perth Stadium.

After a frugal first over that cost just three runs, Pakistan captain Babar Azam sent the towering left-armer to the rope for his first boundary of the day in Starc's second over. Having scored consecutive half-centuries in the first two matches, Azam was dismissed cheaply today despite him opting for a review.

According to ESPNcricinfo, Sean Abbott and Billy Stanlake will play for Australia while Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa are out.

Given the start that Australia have registered, they have a chance to clinch the series 2-0 and extent their unbeaten spree at home this season.

The series opener ended without a result due to rain in Sydney before Steve Smith's masterclass helped Australia win the next game in Canberra.

Pakistan selected two debutants, with middle-order batsman Khushdil Shah and 19-year-old pacer Muhammad Musa coming into the team, alongside Mohammad Hasnain and Imam-ul-Haq.
