Dominant Australia overpower Pakistan to clinch ODI series

Share

Mark Waugh (1996 World Cup, 2001 tri-series) and Matthew Hayden (2007 World Cup) are the only Aussies to have scored three tons in an ODI series.

Australia's captain Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bat first against Pakistan in the third One-day global of the five-match series here at Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Wednesday.

The right-handed opener made 90 off 136 deliveries before Glenn Maxwell stepped up the scoring rate with a 55-ball 71 on a pitch that offered more assistance to the bowlers than the last two matches in Sharjah. In his previous 12 ODI innings, he had scored 262 runs. Most of the batsmen got off to good starts but failed to get going.

However, runs were harder to come by in Abu Dhabi as Finch elected to bat first, with Australia finding it difficult to set the tone.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan is slated to testify Tuesday at a House Armed Services Committee hearing along with Gen. For two years, Trump has battled Congress for as much as $25 billion in funds to fortify the Mexico border with a massive wall.

Finch led from the front again, backing up match-winning knocks of 116 and 153 not out, the highest score of his ODI career.

Junaid Khan dismissed Shaun Marsh for 14 to leave Australia struggling at 20-2 but Finch added 84 for the third wicket with Peter Handscomb (47 with six boundaries) to help his team recover.

Cummins then took out Haris and Rizwan in the space of four balls as Pakistan found themselves in a spot of bother at 16/3.

His effort laid the platform for Australia to make 266-6 from their 50 overs. Adam Zampa picked a four-wicket haul while Pat Cummins accounted for three wickets as Pakistan were bundled out for 186 runs in 44.4 overs.

The prosecutor, First Assistant State's Attorney Joe Magats , said thousands of cases have similar resolutions. Investigators alleged Smollett staged the attack with the hopes of gaining attention and advancing his career.

However, Maxwell finished the job with typical flare and creativity, before Australia's bowlers did the rest as the side sealed its sixth ODI win on the bounce, and second series win in a row - the first time in two-and-a-half years an Australian one-day side has done so.

"He's coming off not as big a break as me so won't take him long to get up and running".

"We've been building up and doing the basics well", said Finch.

"It was one of those days when you can't get out but can't get away".
