Pakistan would love to complete a series whitewash after leading the T20 series 2-0.

Australia recalled Glenn Maxwell in the 12-man squad for the final T20 match against Pakistan on Monday.

Maxwell was the 12th man in the first T20 match, but he was dropped for the second match.

The all-rounder could replace Dan Christian or middle-order batsman David Hussey.

Cameron White said Australia have shown improvement after being bowled out for 89 in game one and scoring 8-151 in game two to level the totals before losing the tie-breaker.
