Australia beat Pakistan in the third ODI by 80 runs in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday to win the five-match series.

The visitors now have an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

Australia, electing to bat first, did not have a great start as Usman Khawaja was dismissed for a nought in the first over. Shaun Marsh managed to score 20 runs in the match.

It was the Australian skipper Aaron Finch who stepped up to the plate and led his side from the front. The right-handed opener went on to score 90 runs off 136 deliveries with the help of five boundaries and a six.

Finch was supported by Peter Handscomb who went on to score 47 runs for the visitors.

Glenn Maxwell hit a swashbuckling knock of 71 runs off 55 balls which included eight fours and a maximum while wicketkeeper batsman Alex Carey’s late 25-run knock helped the side finish at a defendable total of 266-6 in 50 overs.

Pakistan had a dreadful start to the chase of 267-run target as top order batsmen Shan Masood, Haris Sohail and wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan could not even manage to score five runs each.

Skipper Shoaib Malik and Imam-ul-Haq managed to steady the sinking Pakistani batting with their 59-run partnership on the fourth wicket before the latter was dismissed after scoring 46 runs for his side.

Pakistan’s chances of victory in the do-or-die fixture started to get slimmer after Malik went back to the pavilion after scoring 32 runs.

Umar Akmal and Imad Wasim managed to score boundaries before the former was dismissed for 36. Imad’s dismissal on 47 ensured Australia’s victory in the match.

The Pakistan side was bowled out for 186 in 44.4 overs thus losing the fixture by 80 runs.

    Inzamam’s stooge in the team, his nephew who can neither bat nor field is a burden on Pakistan. how can they leave Fawad Alam out and keep this kind of animal who does not know what is cricket in because of crooked Inzamam. Imran Khan – take notice already! enough is enough this fake mulla needs to go to allow PCB to field deserving players for the World Cup. I mean what a disaster losing to NZ and now to Australia in this fashion. shame. time for Inzamam to be fired and Imam to be dropped never to come back in the team Pakistan
