Clarke leads Australia to beat Pakistan

April 29, 2009

Michael Clarke’s all-round performance helped his team give Pakistan a dose of their own medicine as Australia won the third day-night international by 27 runs at Abu Dhabi Stadium here on Monday.
The 28-year-old hit a fighting 66 to anchor an otherwise struggling Australian innings which helped them reach 198-7 in their allotted 50 overs before claiming 3-15 to bowl Pakistan out for 171 in 47.1 overs.
Clarke’s brilliant bowling-which saw Pakistan lose their ten wickets in the space of 76 runs-steered his team to a 2-1 lead in the five-match series.
Pakistan won the first match by four wickets, while Australia clinched the second by six wickets-both played in Dubai last week. Full Article on The Bangladesh Today
