Michael Hussey and Glenn Maxwell hit fighting half-centuries to help Australia beat Pakistan by three wickets in the third and final ODI, taking the three-match series 2-1 in Sharjah.

Hussey scored 65 for his 39th fifty and Maxwell hit a 38-ball 56 not out to round off a challenging chase of a target of 245 in 47 overs spoiling Pakistan's chances of beating Australia for the first time since 2002.

Opener Mohammad Hafeez topscored with 78 in Pakistan's fighting total of 244-7 after they were put into bat.

Hussey added an invaluable 51 for the fifth wicket with Matthew Wade (22) after Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal (3-37) had threatened to wreck their rival's batting as Australia were struggling at 108-4.

Australia won the first match by four wickets before Pakistan levelled the series with a seven wicket win.
