Chasing a moderate target of 156, Australia were bundled out for 89 runs with spinner Imad Wasim taking three wickets. 

Australia suffered an embarrassing 66-run defeat in the first T20 international against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. 

Chasing a moderate target of 156, Australia were bundled out for 89 runs with spinner Imad Wasim taking three wickets. 

Seeing the runs 'The Invincibles' were all-out for, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi was left shocked and said he was stunned at the batting collapse of Australia. 

Only three Australian batsmen could reach the double-figure mark - Chris Lynn (14), Ashton Agar (19) and Nathan Coulter-Nile (34) - as the rest eight of them were dismissed on single digits.

Faheem Ashraf (2/10) and Shaheen Afridi (2/23) shared four wickets between them.

Earlier, the Australian team also lost the two-match Test series against Pakistan 0-1.
