Australia defeated Pakistan in the third ODI of the five-match series by 80 runs on Wednesday to take a 3-0 unassailable lead in the series. These performances come as quite a relief to the country as they've struggled a lot in recent past.
Captain Aaron Finch fell 10 runs short of becoming the first Australian to score three consecutive ODI centuries but negotiated hard conditions to help his team finish with a decent total of 266-6. 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.
Have won consecutive ODI series overseas for the first time since 2016.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Finch as saying after Wednesday's match: "Maxi is a player who people expect so much from every time he plays because he has so much brilliance at times, but I think what people do not see at times when they get frustrated with him, is the amount of stuff he does in the field". Peter Handscomb looked good with a 43-ball 47.
He faced 136 balls in making 90, and the away side were grateful for a breezy, 55-ball innings of 71 from Glenn Maxwell to give their innings some late impetus. Australia finished with 266/6 in 50 overs which was a very challenging total.
Chasing 267 to win, Pakistan lost Shan early on as he was caught by Handscomb at slip off the bowling of Cummins for two runs.
They are also using the series to provide experience and exposure to their bench strength, "a ploy that has produced decent results with Haris Sohail and Mohammad Rizwan scoring centuries and fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain making an impressive debut", the PCB statement said.
Part-time off-spinner Maxwell trapped Imam lbw for 46 and Nathan Lyon removed Malik for 32, leaving Pakistan on the brink of a fourth straight defeat in the format. But none of them dug in and capitalised on the starts. Aaaron Finch continued his good form by slamming ninety runs while Maxwell, Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa made vital contributions. At the same time, they also lashed out at Pakistan for the poor batting display.
And it speaks volumes about the problems at the Lakers that it will be the first playoffs without James featuring since 2005. His 27 points in the quarter were the second-most in franchise history, trailing only Vernon Maxwell's 30 in 1991.
