  • Australia vs Pakistan ODI: Finch misses record ton

Aaron Finch was again the talisman for Australia as they clinched the ODI series against Pakistan with a comfortable win in Abu Dhabi.

Only 10 men - including Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, Kumar Sangakkara, Quinton de Kock and Ross Taylor - have achieved the feat.

The visitors won the third ODI against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi by a massive 80-run margin and thus sealed the series.

"We are trying different combinations keeping the World Cup in mind".

Has scored 479 runs at 95.8 in his past six matches.

The Victorian scored 14 runs from his first 32 balls as Australia slipped to 2-20 but launched a powerful six back over the head of Shah to find some rhythm.

In three knocks against Pakistan, he has scored 359 runs.

However, it's not as if his run of outs was completely fatal - his returns, or lack thereof, came in an Australian team struggling for form, which only amplified his failures against very good bowling against India.


Pakistan are trailing the five-match series 0-2 after suffering defeat at the hands of Australia by eight wickets each in the first two ODIs, both of which were played in Sharjah.

Australia won the toss and elected to bat in the third one-day worldwide against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi.

Australia had a disastrous start as Usman Khawaja was out in the first over and Shaun Marsh too departed in the 6th over.

When he found Haris Sohail in the deep off his 136th ball, he ended with an innings strike rate of 66.18 - his lowest such strike rate in a 50-plus ODI innings for over four years.

Australia are seeking to bank a sixth straight one-day win for the first time since a 2015 streak, which included the World Cup final.

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

Speaking about the batsmen, he said, "Lot of positives in the batting department as well, we got a couple of hundreds - Haris [Sohail] got a hundred, [Mohammad] Rizwan got a hundred".

"I think we got to realise that we have players who are of the worldwide level; the chaps that are here are very good cricketers and will become very good cricketers".
