Australia defeated Pakistan by eight wickets in the first game of the five-match one-day international series at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Friday. 

Electing to bat first, Pakistan lost opener Imam-ul-Haq at the score of 35 after the left-hander could manage to put on just 17 runs on the scoreboard.

Haris Sohail came on to bat and he put on a 43-run partnership with Shan Masood before the latter was clean bowled for 40 runs.

Umar Akmal, who was included into the side for his performance in the Pakistan Super League, and Haris Sohail steadied the innings with their 102-run partnership. Akmal missed out on his half-century by just two runs.

However, Haris Sohail kept going and played an unbeaten 101-run knock for the Men in Green. Faheem Ashraf and Imad Wasim’s 28-run knocks helped the side finish at a defendable total of 280-5 in 50 overs.

In chase of 281-run target, the Kangaroos had a solid start as openers Usman Khawaja and skipper Aaron Finch managed to put up a 63-run stand.

After Khawaja’s dismissal on 24, Finch and Shaun Marsh got the side going with their 172-run partnership on the second wicket.

Aaron Finch went on to play a captain’s knock of 116 runs.

Shaun Marsh made sure that the side does not lose any more wickets as he went on to score 91 runs for his side. He and Peter Handscomb’s 46-run partnership took the side to victory at the end of the 49th over.
