Pakistan finished on 271-8 in their 50 overs with Ali scoring 112 on ODI debut and Rizwan 104.

"We knew how slow the wicket was, we knew if we could get some new batters in it would be tough. Credit to our boys, though Abid and Rizwan getting hundreds were great knocks," said Australia captain Aaron Finch.

Australia lead the five-match series 4-0.
