Maxwell then finished Imam-ul-Haq's resistance and Nathan Lyon produced the key wicket of Shoaib Malik. They will have to win all the three remaining three matches to claim the series.

Speaking about the batsmen, he said, "Lot of positives in the batting department as well, we got a couple of hundreds - Haris [Sohail] got a hundred, [Mohammad] Rizwan got a hundred".

After two consecutive thumping losses, Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has defended giving new players a chance to prove themselves in the one-day worldwide series against Australia now underway in the United Arab Emirates.

Aaron Finch won the toss for the first time this series, and chose to set Pakistan a target. "Any time you can beat India and Pakistan in their home conditions is good".

His innings in the capital followed match-winning contributions of 116 and 153 not out in the wins at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in the opening two matches of the five-game series. Maxwell hit eight fours and a six in his chancy knock before getting run out in the 47th over.

Finch holed out to leg-spinner Yasir Shah in the 42nd over but he had once again built the innings.

Usman Shinwari spearheaded a testing new-ball examination and started the match with a wicket maiden, working over Usman Khawaja in textbook fashion to dismiss the in-form opener for a duck.

The Australians make two fast-bowling changes to their side, with Nathan Coulter-Nile and the injured Jhye Richardson missing out, and Pat Cummins and Jason Behrendorff coming back in. Left-arm paceman Usman Shinwari will replace Faheem Ashraf, who has been rested for the final three matches, while Junaid Khan, another left-arm pacer, will come in place of Mohammad Abbas.
