Hussey leads charge against Pakistan

AUSSIE ARTISTRY:An on-form Australia team played a clever and consistent game to seal victory over Pakistan in the searing summer heat of the United Arab Emirates

Reuters, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates,

When Hafeez missed an attempted sweep at Clarke to fall lbw, Pakistan had lost 3-26 in six overs and although Asad Shafiq (27) and captain Misbah (25) tried to repair the damage, they were never able to break free.

Man-of-the-series Mitchell Starc (4-51) was once again the pick of Australia’s attack, the left-arm fast bowler ending with a total of 13 wickets from four ODI matches against Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The sides will now face each other in three Twenty20 internationals in Dubai.
