Finch, Marsh Power Australia to Comfortable Eight-Wicket Win Over Pakistan

Aaron Finch’s fine century drove Australia to a convincing eight-wicket win over a new-look Pakistan in the first One-Day International on Friday.

The Australian skipper scored 116 off 135 balls for his 12th ODI century that helped his team overhaul the 281-run target in 49 overs on a flat Sharjah pitch. The win gives Australia the lead in the five-match series.

Finch’s match-winning knock overshadowed Haris Sohail’s maiden one-day hundred (101 not out) which helped Pakistan to 280-5 in their 50 overs.

The 32-year-old smashed Shoaib Malik for a huge six towards deep mid-wicket to complete his century – his first since June last year against England at Chester-Le-Street – off 120 balls.

Finch, who knocked four sixes and eight boundaries, added an innings-building 172 runs for the second wicket with Shaun Marsh who scored an unbeaten 91 off 102 balls with four boundaries and two sixes.

With 46 needed Finch became Mohammad Abbas’s maiden wicket but Peter Handscomb hit 30 not out to help Marsh cross the line.

Finch and Marsh came together after opener Usman Khawaja fell for 24 to medium pacer Faheem Ashraf, the only other success Pakistan’s new-look bowling attack could achieve.

Pakistan rested six of their key players including regular skipper Sarfraz Ahmed in order to keep them fresh for the World Cup starting in UK from May 30.

But the young and inexperienced Pakistan led by Malik proved no match for Australia, who are on a roll after their win in India earlier this month.

Left-hander Sohail, who reached 1,000 runs in his 27th ODI when on 40, anchored Pakistan’s innings, adding 98 for the third wicket with Umar Akmal who made a 50-ball 48 in his first international match for two years.

Sohail took a single to complete his hundred in the last over, finishing with six boundaries and a six.

Pakistan had handed one-day debuts to opener Shan Masood and Abbas – who have played 15 and 14 Tests respectively.

Masood put on 35 in an opening stand with Imam-ul-Haq (17) before off-spinner Nathan Lyon dismissed Imam in the seventh over, caught and bowled.

Masood, who hit five boundaries in his 62-ball 40, was then bowled by paceman Nathan Coulter-Nile who finished with 1-38 in his 10 overs.

Umar smashed three sixes in one Jhye Richardson over but fell one short of his half-century.

Malik fell for 11 and Ashraf and Imad Wasim scored 28 each.

Wasim hit four boundaries and a six during his 13-ball unbeaten knock, helping Pakistan to 55 runs in the last five overs.

Sunday’s second ODI is also being played in Sharjah, with the third in Abu Dhabi (March 27) and the last two in Dubai (March 29 and 31).

IPL 2019 | Malinga to Give Mumbai Indians' First Six Games a Miss

Lasith Malinga has opted out of Mumbai Indians’ first six matches of IPL 2019 in a bid to qualify for Sri Lanka’s World Cup squad.

The Sri Lankan selectors have reportedly told the players that in order to play the 2019 World Cup they must play in the domestic Super Provincial One-Day tournament which runs from April 4 to April 11. Malinga, who was purchased by Mumbai for INR 2 Cr has decided to fulfill the requirements.

“I had asked the [Sri Lanka] board for a No-Objection Certificate for me to play in the IPL, and they had said that was fine, but that all players who want to go to the World Cup would need to stay back for the provincial tournament,” Malinga was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo.

“So I told them I’d play in the provincial tournament, and I asked the board to inform Mumbai Indians and IPL, since it was their decision. I’m okay with losing those earnings from IPL. I’m doing it for the country.”

The 35-year-old pacer further stated that it would be, in fact, better for the Mumbai based franchise if they replace him for the whole tournament as he will have to miss a chunk of the games at the start. Malinga is the tournament’s highest wicket-taker having picked up 154 wickets at an average of 19.01, and an economy rate of 6.86.

“Once I become available for Mumbai Indians, I would have missed seven or eight games,” he said. “So there’s probably no point in them waiting around for me. Better for them to find someone else to replace me with.”

It’s also being reported that Adam Milne has been ruled out too because of an injury. The right-arm paceman from New Zealand was bought for Rs 75 lakhs and Mumbai are now looking to rope in the young West Indies fast bowler Alzarri Joseph as a replacement.
