The series was confidently finished by Pakistan after they crushed Australia in the last third ODI. This time, not only thanks to batting but dominant bowling too.
Traditionally to the Australian tour of Pakistan, the guests started batting first. However, things went wrong from the early beginning as Head was dismissed from the first throwing in the game. The trend continued to the 6th over, which finished for the guests with a terrible 11 to 3.
The visitors tried to calm down and made a few good attempts until the 31st over. The following five were disastrous, as the scorecard was fulfilled with only 19 runs (to 168) but left the guests with the last possible duo on the pitch. Abbott and Zampa, Australians finished in the 42nd over with only 210 runs.

In such conditions, the hosts entered the pitch with almost no pressure but full of confidence. Zaman even tried to keep a 100+ SR at the beginning but left the pitch early in the fourth over with 17 runs from 12 balls. Interestingly, that was the only wicket lost by the hosts. The deadly duo of ul-Haq and Azam delivered all the other needed runs to close the game and series. The skipper brought another century (105) from 115 balls, while ul-Haq was close to making the same (89 from 100).
