Australia vs Pakistan 5th ODI, Adelaide
Australia 7 for 369 (Warner 179, Head 128) beat Pakistan 312 (Azam 100, Sharjeel 79, Starc 4-42) by 57 runs
Talk about celebrating Australia Day in style, the national cricket team knows it! David Warner and Travis Head gave the Adelaide Oval crowd some extra motivation to appreciate the national occasion by revising the record books and incorporating the unequaled most noteworthy ODI association for Australia, a 284-run stand that set up a weighty win over Pakistan in the last match of the arrangement. For a dead elastic, this series had a lot of skip – at any rate, while Australia were batting.
Their 7 for 369 implied Pakistan would have required the third-most elevated effective pursue in ODI history if they somehow happened to rise with a comfort win; it was just too huge an assignment, notwithstanding a century from Babar Azam and an ordinarily engaging 79 from Sharjeel Khan.
Despite the fact that Pakistan dealt with their most noteworthy aggregate of the arrangement – 312 – despite everything they endured a 57-run crush, and will fly home with a 1-4 ODI arrangement misfortune to sit close by their 0-3 result in the Tests.
Maybe the main dissatisfaction for the group was that Warner did not transform his 179 into a twofold century. It was Warner’s thirteenth one-day global hundred, yet the nearby observers similarly valued the lady century from Head, the South Australia skipper now advancing in the national side. Elevated to open with Warner for the second time in the arrangement – Usman Khawaja was let well enough alone for this XI – Head completed with 128 off 137 balls.
