Pakistan crush Aussie, level series
Sat, 01 Sep 2012 10:58a.m.
Pakistan opening batsman Nasir Jamshed smashed a brilliant 97 to help his team beat Australia by seven wickets in their second one-day international and level the series.
The left-handed Jamshed hit 11 fours and two sixes as Pakistan reached 249-3 in 43.4 overs after Michael Hussey's 61 had anchored Australia to 248-9.
Jamshed cut, pulled and drove imperiously in his 98-ball knock as the Australians found it difficult to bowl with the ball getting wet because of heavy dew.
Jamshed laid a solid foundation of 66 with Mohammad Hafeez (23) before putting on further 101 with Azhar Ali (59 not out) as Australian captain Michael Clarke used eight bowlers without much success in energy-sapping humidity.
Australia won the first match by four wickets at Sharjah which hosts the series decider.
