Australia seal the victory. That is the second highest run chase at this ground. A perfect display with the bat for the visitors. Earlier Haris Sohail struck his maiden ODI century, but that was then eclipsed by Aaron Finch getting a hundred of his own. Shaun Marsh finished with an impressive 91 not out, as Pakistan rarely threatened with the ball in hand. A convincing win sees Australia go 1-0 up in the five match series, with the next one on Sunday. Join us then to see if they can double that lead, or if Pakistan can level things up.
