Australia turn tables for one-run win
Australia 231 for 9 beat Pakistan 230 by 1 run in their 3rd and final ODI, in Abu Dhabi yesterday.
At the toss, George Bailey had said his team had still not played the ultimate game despite being 2-0 up in the series.
Given the way they batted, it was certainly not the ultimate game Australia was after; they lost their way from 102 for 1 in the 22nd over to end up with only 231 on the board, on a batsmen-friendly pitch.
But it was the manner in which Australia's bowlers turned the match around, especially in the last over - a double-wicket maiden from Glenn Maxwell when Pakistan needed just two to win, to complete the whitewash they were after.
