That's it from us then. Do join us back for the final ODI which is a dead rubber on Sunday, 12th October from 1630 IST onwards. Until then, good bye and take care!

Man of the Match - Glenn Maxwell. He is pretty happy and wants a clean sweep. He wants to repeat such performance. He tried his best today.

!

Lots of awards to be given once again today. Master Blaster award - Sarfraz Ahmed. Best bowler of the match - Mitchell Johnson. Most colorful innings - Ahmed Shehzad. Fastest bowler of the match - Mitchell Johnson. Bonus shot - Glenn Maxwell. Outstanding performance of the match - David Warner.

!

Australia's run chase wasn't a good one either as they lost Finch and Smith early. Warner was batting well but holed out, thanks to a terrific catch by Mohammad Irfan. Then Maxwell and Bailey shared a crucial partnership between them. Bailey was run out but Maxwell scored a stylish 76-run knock. The Pakistani bowlers couldn't really provide much threat to the Australian batsmen as they were cruising. Faulkner and Haddin finished things off as Australia completed another victory.

!

With this victory Australia have sealed the series 2-0 with one match to go. They are unbeaten so far in this UAE tour. Today they didn't really get off to a good start. The Pakistani openers gave their team a solid start with a century partnership but then lost the plot completely. Their middle order failed miserably as Australia came back hard, restricting Pakistan to a below par total.

Raza Hasan to David Warner

OUT! Warner finds the tallest man in cricket! Flighted outside off stump, Warner looks to fetch it from outside off to deposit this over long on but doesn't middle it all that well. The ball goes to Irfan who waits, moves back a little and then leaps just a bit to take a fine catch. He is pumped up, this man's fielding has indeed improved. Pakistan are jubilant as Warner's is a key wicket. It would have been difficult for any other fielder to have got there.

OUT! Nicked and Smith walks, good catch by Sarfraz! Slightly flat on middle, Smith rocks back and looks to guide the ball through point. The ball goes off the outside half of the bat and Ahmed does well to get his gloves behind the deflection, to take an excellent catch. This is a massive wicket, Smith was looking in fine touch today as well.

OUT! The third umpire sees an edge and Finch has to go back! Back of a length around off, swings away late and as Finch goes back to punch, he gets squared up. There is a noise as the ball passes and Sarfraz takes the catch. Pakistan appeal vociferously but the umpire doesn't feel there was an edge. Misbah is confident and goes upstairs. The third umpire looks at a few replays and overturns the onfield decision. This was a close call, even on the replays.

!

Was there an edge or no? Pakistan are confident as they feel that Finch is caught behind. Misbah goes for the review.

NOT OUT! Finch survives, the ball fell short! Flighted around off, Finch bends forward to defend but the ball spins away and takes the outside edge. It goes to first slip where Umar Akmal gets down and takes the catch, but hang on, it might have just landed before his palms. The umpire isn't sure and goes upstairs. Replays clearly show the ball bouncing before it went into the palms.
