Australia's Travis Head (L) runs between the wickets during the fifth one-day worldwide (ODI) cricket match against Pakistan. Starc was the pick of the bowlers, claiming the final wicket with the first ball of the final over, bowling Wahab Riaz to end with 4-42, as Pakistan were bowled out for 312, slumping to a 4-1 series defeat to end a forgettable tour. But not only was Head's 128 from 135 balls therefore significant historically, so too could it prove important as Australia's one-day XI takes shape ahead of the Champions Trophy later this year.

Both batsmen hit their best ODI scores as Australia closed on 369-7. Here's the scorecard of the Australia vs Pakistan 5th ODI.

Sharjeel scored his third half-century in a row, but his 130-run stand with Azam was broken when Sharjeel mistimed a pull shot off Starc and skied a catch to wicketkeeper Matthew Wade.

However a win in last ODI of five-match series not only somewhat would heal the wounds but it would help Pakistan get crucial points in terms of direct qualification for World Cup 2019.

Shoaib Malik retired hurt on 10, when his left arm was hit by a delivery from Pat Cummins.

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

"We've played some pretty good cricket over the last couple of games", reflected Smith.

On top of that, this particular century also means Warner becomes the first batsman to score four ODI hundreds in an Australian summer and equals Aussie cricketing icon Allan Border's record for fastest ODI ton at the Adelaide Oval. It was Warner's 13-th One Day International century but it was maiden ton for Head who was promoted to opening position for second time in the series.

Warner reached the nineties from 65 balls, but then took 12 deliveries to negotiate his way to 99 before a defensive push took him to three figures and around the square in leaping celebration.

Azam made a fighting century but never looked to threaten Australia's imposing total before he got a leading edge while attempting to smash Josh Hazlewood over midwicket. There were two wickets apiece for Junaid and Hasan Ali, though the latter did concede 100 runs from his nine overs.
