Pakistan vs Australia, third one-day international, Abu Dhabi – A win in the third ODI against Pakistan will take Australia to its best winning streak in the format since lifting the World Cup in 2015.
Australia is 4-189 after 42 overs, losing Usman Khawaja (0) to Usman Shinwari, Shaun Marsh (14) to Junaid Khan, Peter Handscomb (47) to Haris Sohail, Marcus Stoinis (10) to Imad Wasim and Aaron Finch (90) to Yasir Shah after electing to bat.
Written off as World Cup contenders at the start of the year, Australia turned the corner in India and have now recorded five wins on the trot – three against India and two against Pakistan. Australia hasn’t strung together six-consecutive one-day victories since 2015, when a nine-match winning streak included their MCG mauling of New Zealand in the World Cup final
