Australia is on the verge of whitewashing the Pakistan team in the 5-match ODI series following a 6-run win in the 4th ODI. Glenn Maxwell’s 82-ball 98 and fifties from Usman Khawaja (62) and Alex Carey (55) pushed Australia to 277/7 in the 50 overs. Debutant Abid Ali (112) and Mohammad Rizwan (104) scored hundreds to put Pakistan on top. The partnership was broken when they needed 60 from nine overs and wickets followed in a flurry. No batsman after their partnership got to double digits as Pakistan finished with only 271/8.
All the major stats and numbers recorded during the thriller between Pakistan and Australia:
Australia’s record streak:
7 – Australia has won each of their previous seven ODI matches in Asia starting from the 3rd ODI against India. This is the joint-longest winning streak in the ODI format for Australia in Asia. They won seven in a row during 1998 and also seven between 2003 and 2004.
Two hundreds not enough for a win:
4 – Pakistan’s innings is only the 4th instance where two batsmen scored centuries in an unsuccessful ODI chase. India against Sri Lanka during the 1997 Colombo ODI, Zimbabwe against India during the 2004 VB Series and India against Australia during the 2016 Canberra ODI scored two centuries in an unsuccessful chase in this format.
5 – This match is only the 5th for Pakistan where two of their batsmen scored centuries in an ODI defeat. The last of the previous four instances was during the 2012 Asia Cup game against India.
A record series for Australia:
398 – Aaron Finch’s 398 runs in this series are the most by an Australian opener in a bilateral ODI series. He surpassed David Warner’s 386 runs during the 2016 5-match ODI series in South Africa. Finch’s tally of 398 runs is also the most by an Australian in a 5-match ODI series and overall the 2nd highest in a bilateral series. George Bailey scored 478 runs across six innings during the 2013 series in India.
A mixed debut for Abid Ali:
112 – The 112 by Abid Ali is the highest individual score by a Pakistan player on ODI debut. Saleem Elahi (102*) in 1995 and Imam-ul-Haq (100) in 2017; both against Sri Lanka are the previous centurions on ODI debut for Pakistan.
112 – Abid Ali’s 112 is the 2nd highest individual innings on ODI debut to be on the losing side. Andy Flower scored an unbeaten 115 during the 1992 CWC game against Sri Lanka. Michael Lumb’s 106 against the Windies in 2014 is the only other century in defeat on ODI debut.
Rizwan creates records:
2 – Mohammad Rizwan’s two centuries in this series came on the losing side; the joint-most hundreds by any player in an ODI series/tournament to come in the losing cause. Rizwan is the 2nd Pakistan player to score multiple tons in defeats in an ODI series. Inzamam-ul-Haq scored two during the 2004 home ODI series against India.
2 – Rizwan became the 2nd Pakistan wicket-keeper to score more than one hundred in an ODI series/tournament. Kamran Akmal also scored two centuries during the 2005 home ODI series against England.
Maxwell’s nervous 90s:
5 – Glenn Maxwell now has been dismissed five times in the 90s in the ODI format. Adam Gilchrist (6) and Ricky Ponting (5) are the other two Australians to be dismissed more often in the 90s in ODIs.
