AUS vs PAK: Sixth ODI win on the trot for Australia in the sub-continent really shows their intent and preparations for the World Cup. A few months back they were reeling with form and nothing was going their way. But now, they are looking unstoppable and with the series already in their pocket, they would be eyeing a complete whitewash here.
Chasing a score of 266 runs, Pakistan got off to a terrible start as they lost 3 wickets for 16 runs within 7 overs. Opener Imam-Ul-Haq was watching his mates coming and going. He was holding the other end while Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa were inflicting pain on a regular basis on the other hand. Zampa with his leggies scalped 4 for 43 while Pat Cummins who did the early damages got 3 for 24 from 8 overs to close Pakistan’s innings for 186 in 44.4 overs.
