Scorecard
Jason Krejza reminded the national selectors of his value with a four-wicket haul that helped deliver Australia A a tense victory over Pakistan A in Townsville. As Australia consider a spinner-less Test team in Cardiff, Krejza and his fellow slow bowler Jon Holland combined for six wickets on the final day to hand the home team a 1-0 series win.
Pakistan were chasing 300 but a draw appeared their best possible outcome as the batsmen, with the exception of Azhar Ali, struggled in the second innings. Azhar's 73 was a lone hand and when he fell to Holland Australia had a sniff of victory.
Krejza's 4 for 54 and three wickets from Doug Bollinger brought a result closer but it still went down to the wire. The winning breakthrough came when Holland struck in the 78th over as Fahad Masood prodded to Michael Klinger at silly point.
The home team had posted 34 for the loss of three wickets in the morning session as Moises Henriques (82) failed to add to his overnight score and missed the chance for a maiden first-class century. The sides now head to Brisbane for the limited-overs portion of the series.
