Thread: Australia beat Pakistan by 135 runs

  1. Australia beat Pakistan by 135 runs

    Australia 277/8 (50 ov)
    Pakistan 142 all out (37.5 ov)
    Australia won the 4th ODI against Pakistan by 125 runs at the WACA Ground on Friday. Chasing Australia target of 277 runs, Salman Butt fell for a duck to Ryan Harris in the first over. Kamran Akmal made 17 runs before Peter Siddle claimed his wicket, thanks to the safe hands of Brad Haddin. Harris claimed his second wicket, dismissing Younus Khan for six runs. Haddin took the catch off Harris's bowling. And Siddle broke through with Mohammad Yousuf, with another fine catch from Haddin behind the wicket.
    Earlier, Mike Hussey continued his prolific summer and Nathan Hauritz displayed his all-round credentials in brutal fashion as Australia posted an imposing 8-277.
    Hussey posted a composed 67 off 75 balls but it was Hauritz who stole the show as he made his maiden half-century. Hauritz spanked four sixes and a four in his entertaining and unbeaten knock of 53 off 39 balls after coming to the crease in the 40th over with Australia precariously placed at 6-190.
    Earlier, Cameron White (44), makeshift opener Brad Haddin (32) and Ricky Ponting (30) chipped in with handy contributions but couldn't go on with the job.
    Hussey saved his Test career this summer with a solid tally of runs against the West Indies and Pakistan and his form in the one-day game continues to blossom. His latest knock to his series tally to 180 runs at an average of 60.
    Pakistan paceman Mohammad Asif finished with tidy figures of 3-42 from 10 overs while spinner Shahid Afridi (1-44 off 10) and Saeed Ajmal (2-55) escaped much of the late carnage.
    Pakistan's fielding woes came back to haunt them early when Asif put down a return catch low to the ground when Haddin was on just one.
    While that chance went begging, wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal pulled off a spectacular catch diving full length to his left to dismiss Shaun Marsh for 12.
    Haddin went for one heave too many as Rana Naved ul-Hasan sent a straight delivery into his stumps and Australia slipped to 3-77 in the 15th over when Michael Clarke was run out for 10 after Ponting called for a risky single.
    Ponting departed in bizarre fashion when Kamran Akmal snared one of the most unorthodox catches he will ever take off the bowling of spinner Afridi.
    Ponting's thick edge sailed into the chest of Akmal but the wicketkeeper kept his cool, throwing his arms up so the ball couldn't deflect away before trapping it in between his legs.
    Akmal almost spilled the ball when he attempted to grab it with his gloves but managed to finally bring it under control, with Ponting given his marching orders after a brief consult between the two umpires.
    White once again loomed as the saviour as he made his way into the 40s but was sent packing when he holed out in the deep to Ajmal but Hussey and Hauritz ensured the runs flowed freely in the dying overs, with their 80-run partnership coming off just 56 balls.
