AUSvsPAK, 3rd ODI: Australia overpower Pakistan to clinch ODI series

Pakistan vs Australia, Pak vs Aus 3rd ODI Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: Australia eye series win as they take on Pakistan in the third ODI at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Imam-ul-Haq and stand-in captain Shoaib Malik steadied things with a 59-run partnership before Imam was trapped lbw off the bowling of Maxwell for 46.

Finch said he believed the form of the top-order batsmen meant they could go about the innings with confidence and goal, and hopefully post an above-par total.

Australia have emerged as a force to reckon with after winning the series in India and have now won the series against Pakistan as well.

Finch was happy with the series win, Australia's sixth over Pakistan since 2002. "But we ended up getting a good score on a hard wicket".

"Keeping wickets and going deep in the game, that's where you can chase, but we couldn't do that", said Malik, standing in for regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed who is rested for the series.

Maxwell, who was dropped on 27, then overwhelmed Pakistan with a mix of audacious strokes, assertive running between the wickets and nine boundaries.

Earlier, Australia stuttered to 20-2 after unusual rain in Abu Dhabi delayed the start of the match by 15 minutes.

Maxwell was typically aggressive and smacked eight fours and a six, though a run out denied him the opportunity to press further on the accelerator in the final two overs.

Finch hit centuries in each of Australia's victories in Sharjah and, though he did not reach three figures on this occasion, it was the captain who once more made the key contribution.

The 32-year-old was perfectly placed for a 14th hundred in the 50-overs format but holed out to leg-spinner Yasir Shah in the 42nd over.

However, Finch, fresh off the two tons in the first two ODIs, added 84 for the third wicket with Peter Handscomb (47) to help his team recover.

Australia brought in fast bowlers Cummins and Jason Behrendorff to replace injured Jhye Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile.

Zampa then dismissed Shinwari and sent Junaid and Mohammad Hasnain packing in successive deliveries to bowl Pakistan out for 186.
