Pakistan vs Australia, Pak vs Aus 4th ODI highlights: Abid Ali and Mohammad Rizwan’s century went in vain as Australia produced a brilliant turnaround to win the fourth ODI by six runs on Friday. Pakistan at one stage were cruising towards victory as Ali and Rizwan added 144 for the third wicket. However, wickets kept tumbling after Ali’s dismissal and the hosts eventually lost their way, which eventually saw them ending up in the losing side.

Earlier in the day, Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey added 134 runs for the sixth wicket to rescue Australia out of danger as the visitors finished on 277/7 at the end of 50 overs. Maxwell was dismissed on 98, while Carey added 55 runs on the scoreboard. After a 56-run opening stand between Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja, Australia found themselves struggling at 140/5 as they lost wickets in quick succession in the middle overs.
