Australia whitewash Pakistan 5-0 despite Haris hundred

DUBAI: World champions Australia completed a 5-0 whitewash over Pakistan with a clinical 20-run win in the fifth and final one-day international despite a brilliant hundred from Haris Sohail in Dubai on Sunday.

Sohail scored a 129-ball 130 for his second one-day international hundred but failed to take Pakistan past Australia´s imposing 327-7, finishing at 307-7 in 50 overs.

Australia´s total was built around Usman Khawaja´s 98 and a fiery 33-ball 70 by Glenn Maxwell coupled with Shaun Marsh´s 61 and skipper Aaron Finch´s 53 in a dominating batting show.

The series win gives Australia an eighth straight one-day victory following their 3-2 series win in India after losing the first two matches.
