Pakistan lost the first ODI by 92 runs, a game which they had taken control of in the first hour, courtesy to Mohammad Amir’s brilliant bowling and then Imad Wasim’s spin.
But Australia showed why they are number one in the format, as they bounced back from being five down to just 72, in the first innings and went on to post a respectable total of 268/9.
Mathew Wades was the star with his maiden ODI hundred, and Maxwell’s quickfire 60 runs were the other highlight, besides Head’s 38 runs early in the day.
Bad news for Pakistan camp as the in-form skipper Azhar Ali ruled out of the next two games owing to hamstring injury he got in first ODI.
In the absence of vice-captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez will lead Pakistan.
