Australia finish ODI series with record-breaking win over Pakistan

This is also the highest partnership for any wicket for Australia going past the 260 runs added by Steven Smith and Warner against Afghanistan in Perth in 2015.

Career-best centuries by David Warner and Travis Head in an explosive opening partnership of 284 launched Australia to a 57-run win over Pakistan in the fifth and final one-day worldwide on Thursday.

The 57-run victory on Thursday (January 26), also Australia Day, helped the host complete a 4-1 victory in the five-match series. Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan built a reasonable platform, putting on 130 for the second wicket.

Sharjeel reached a run-a-ball fifty while Azam needed 75 balls to reach his own half-century. Starc was again successful in his next over, as Mohammad Hafeez was removed for three after edging the left-armer to Smith at first slip.

These states would get hurt most in a Trump trade war
Such a measure could affect Mexico's exports to the United States, its top trading partner. Trump was expected to meet with Nieto Jan. 31.

Before his latest match which was played against Pakistan, Warner scored 3767 in 92 ODI's with a strike rate of 95.46 and an average of 43.29.

Head batted mostly in Warner's shadow, and his steady progress to a maiden century was eclipsed by his partner's 13th ODI century, his sixth of the season, and his second in the series.

You've just got to take those chances (first-ball drop), if it doesn't go to hand you've got to make the most of it.

Star Sports Select HD 2 will telecast live action for viewers in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, while Channel Nine will broadcast in Australia, BT Sport in the United Kingdom and Willow Sports in the US.

Lucic-Baroni Powers Past Pliskova, Continues Fairytale Run Into Oz Semifinal
However, most neutrals will hope for a showdown between two legendary players suddenly rediscovering their form of five years ago. Lucic-Baroni upset third-seed Agnieszka Radwanska this fortnight and another grand slam finalist, Simona Halep, twice at majors.

Set an improbable 370 to win after Australia posted a ground-record 7-369 from their 50 overs, Pakistan were stubborn but only fleetingly in the hunt.

Warner was only six off Shane Watson's national-record ODI score when he was caught at point off Junaid Khan.

As the Adelaide crowd celebrated Australia Day, they were given plenty to cheer about by Warner (179) and Head (128), who scored the vast bulk of an imposing 369-7.

Hasan Ali conceded 100 runs off his 10 overs for the wickets of Matthew Wade and Head, who departed in the 47th over when Azhar juggled but hung onto a catch.
