Australia whitewash Pakistan 5-0 in ODI series despite Haris hundred

The Australians set the seal on a cleansweep when they won the fifth one-day global by 20 runs at the Dubai worldwide Stadium on Sunday night.

It will be essential for Pakistani players to clear their fitness test in order to be considered for the team which will play in the upcoming Cricket World Cup.

Pakistan were once again with skipper Shoaib Malik, who was rested after failing to fully recover from a rib injury which also forced him to miss the last game on Friday. "We'll sit down and see what we have to do", said Wasim.

"But I think there is a bigger picture".

"We have to chin up as we have a series coming up against England and then the World Cup". At the end of the day there will be some tough calls, but its exciting for Australia at the same time because six month back a lot of people were slamming us.

"What was the best way to get there?" The hosts wanted to use this series to settle the last four spots of the 15-member squad to be selected for the World Cup.

Arthur pointed out that his side have been travelling for much of the time since the Asia Cup started in the UAE in September. "We got on the road in September past year for the Asia Cup and then went to South Africa and then had the Pakistan Super League so we had to rest them".

British PM May mulls fourth try on Brexit deal
None of the eight options put to parliament last week won a majority, but there were signs of support for a softer Brexit. Ms Thornberry also said "it looks like the time may come" for another attempted no confidence vote in the government.

"Hafeez had the plate taken out of his finger four days ago in the United Kingdom, we're hoping he'll be fit and ready to go for the start of the England tour", he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. We then finished the South Africa series, flew straight from there to the [Pakistan Super League]. "So there was no gap to rest those players".

"The way everyone contributed throughout the series was fantastic, " Australian captain Aaron Finch said.

The resounding win marked a remarkable turnaround in fortunes for Australia.

Khawaja, who made his first two ODI career hundreds in India earlier this month, was all set for his third but fell to a miscued drive off Shinwari, who finished with 4-49.

Finch admitted the potential return of Warner, who has been in top form in the Indian Premier League, and Smith would mean some hard choices when the World Cup squad is named later this month.

"A lot of people were writing us off, not just for one-day cricket, but for all forms of cricket. It's been really positive last couple of months and we have been building nicely".
