Electing to bat first, Pakistan were reduced to 60-3 with the Australians dismissing skipper Azhar Ali, Haris Sohail and Shan Masood.
However, Babar Azam and Asad Shafiq then stole the show and put on an unbeaten 276-run stand for the fourth wicket.
Pakistan’s T20I skipper was the first to reach his century as he reached triple figures in 126 balls and went on to reach his 150 in 189 deliveries.
Asad, on the other hand, had a laid back approach as he crossed the 100-run mark in 198 deliveries.
