Alyssa BaileyJan 27, 2017

The pair, however, remained unable to break the highest opening partnership record by mere two runs.

It could have been all so different, however, had Pakistan captain Azhar Ali clung onto a sharp diving catch after Warner had edged Mohammad Amir into the cordon.

It was a winning end for Australia to the ODI series against Pakistan, with 179 to David Warner and 128 to Travis Head helping set a total of 7-369, before Mitchell Starc's four wickets saw the hosts home by 57 runs in Adelaide on Australia Day.

The 57-run victory on Thursday (January 26), also Australia Day, helped the host complete a 4-1 victory in the five-match series.

"Davey has been absolutely outstanding, and I thought Travis Head played very well to get his first ODI hundred".

After losing the toss and being asked to bowl first, Pakistan nearly got the flawless start when Mohammad Amir enticed an edge from Warner with his first ball, but a diving Azhar Ali at first slip couldn't hold onto the hard chance. Starc's next over snared Mohammad Hafeez off an edge. Before Warner, the highest score by an Australian against Pakistan was Hayden's 146 in Nairobi in 2002.

Warner then was in supreme command of a hapless bowling attack to post his 13th one-day ton - five of them, scores higher than 150.

Pai has been a commissioner at the FCC since 2012, when he was appointed by then-President Obama and confirmed by the Senate. Pai opposed net neutrality rules and, after Trump's victory, said those rules' " days are numbered ".

It would have been different though had Azhar held on as Warner edged Mohammad Amir first ball after Smith made it a ideal five tosses won for the series.

Once again Sharjeel Khan was the main danger for the tourists, but once he went for 79 off 69 balls, a hard task became nearly impossible.

Junaid Khan, who leaked 82 runs in 10 wicketless overs in the last game, is likely to be dropped and replaced by fellow left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz, who hasn't featured in the series since the opening game.

After playing the initial overs cautiously, Warner along with his opening partner Head (128) started to scored six boundaries between them to take Australia to 48 for naught in eight overs.
