Michael Hussey and Glenn Maxwell hit fighting half-centuries to help Australia beat Pakistan by three wickets in the third and final one-day international, taking the three-match series 2-1 yesterday.

Hussey scored 65 for his 39th fifty and Maxwell hit a 38-ball 56 not out to round off a challenging chase of a target of 245 in 47 overs spoiling Pakistan's chances of beating Australia for the first time since 2002.

Opener Mohammad Hafeez topscored with 78 in Pakistan's fighting total of 244-7 after they were put into bat.

Hussey added an invaluable 51 for the fifth wicket with Matthew Wade after Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal had threatened to wreck their rival's batting as Australia were struggling at 108-4.
