Australia Women are one win away from a second consecutive clean sweep over Pakistan Women after winning the third Twenty20 International by eight wickets in Robina.

Another dominant display from the reigning world champions saw them restrict Pakistan to 84 for six and they easily overhauled their target in just 12 overs.

For Pakistan, Marina Iqbal (11) and Nain Abidi (30 not out) were the only two players to reach double figures.

Delissa Kimmince returned career-best figures of two for 17 and Kristen Beams marked her T20I debut with one for 13.

Elyse Villani added to a brace of run outs during Pakistan's innings with a knock of 50 that put Australia on course for a handsome win.

She shared an opening stand worth 68 with Meg Lanning (24 not out) before she was bowled by Maham Tariq.

The final match is on Friday 5th September.
