Australia beat Pakistan by four wickets
New opening combination of Michael Clarke and Simon Katich put on 107 runs in 105 balls on Sunday to lead Australia to a four-wicket win over Pakistan in a tri-series limited-overs cricket match.
Set a revised target of 253 in 45 overs after a 40-minute rain delay, Australia reached 253/6 with Darren Lehmann on 49 not out and Brad Hogg on three.
Pakistan scored 272/7 in their 50 overs.
Katich was out for 38, but Clarke went on to post 97 from 96 balls with 12 fours and a six.
He was out — caught in the deep off the bowling of Mohammad Hafeez — trying to bring up his century with a boundary over mid on.
The Australians won with 12 balls to spare after the cheap dismissals of Ricky Ponting (6), Damien Martyn (11) and Andrew Symonds for a duck.
Abdul Razzaq led Pakistan's bowlers with 2-41.
