11.00pm A bizarre chase from Pakistan. Perhaps it was the inexperience in their ranks? It's the fourth time in history that a side has lost an ODI chase with two centurions. Pakistan were cruising when Abid Ali and Mohammad Rizwan were in the midst of their 144-run stand, but when Abid fell after reaching his ton, Australia had their opening. The required rate climbed, Australia found their way back into the game, and now they've made it 4-0. That 134-run stand between Maxwell and Carey set up Australia's total, and their doggedness in the field turned it into a match-winning one.
Rehan Javed: "One of most frustrated Defeats in history of cricket; Once again Pakistan took defeat from Jaws of victory."
Sadiq Dars: "This is hard to believe 25 required on 18 balls with 6 wickets in hand and finally Pakistan lost.."
Binoy: "Finch the captain cool done it again for aussies."
Mikrant: "Inexperience just cost them the match."
Glenn Maxwell is the Player of the Match: "We lost a few up top and I came in a bit earlier, but to put on a good partnership with Carey was what we needed. I've got a really solid role in this team at the moment. We knew if we could just get a wicket and break their big partnership, it was a hard wicket to start on."
"They bowled beautifully," admits Imad Wasim. "We were lacking the power hitting. We were short, so it shows we were lacking something. Some of the shots were not on in that situation. But the hundreds were positives for us. It's an honour to lead Pakistan. I enjoy captaincy."
"I thought our composure with the ball was really good," says winning captain Aaron Finch. "We knew how slow the wicket was, we knew if we could get some new batters in it would be tough. Credit to our boys, though Abid and Rizwan getting hundreds were great knocks. Maxwell played really well, assessing the situation, taking it deep. You can never accuse Glenn of being selfish, the way he plays. He does everything for the team. When Shinwari hit a six, the heart started going again. But we kept hanging in. And that's something we've prided ourselves on. Our quicks at the end were very disciplined."
And that's all from your commentary team tonight, with Alex Malcolm and Liam Brickhill having kept you informed over the course of the game. Australia's one-day renaissance continues apace, and they will take some serious confidence into the fifth and final game on Sunday. Do join us again for that game. Until then, goodbye!
