Australia set Pakistan 278-run target in 4th ODI
PERTH: Pakistan were set a difficult target of 278 runs by Australia in the fourth One-day International here at the WACA ground on Friday.
Winning the toss, Australian captain Ricky Ponting decided to bat first and his team made 277-8 in the allotted 50 overs.
Pakistan were looking a beeter team with an improved fielding and their bowlers bowled quite well to dismiss four Aussie batsmen for 110 runs in 22 overs.
However, Cameron White and Michael Hussey came to their rescue and they took the score to 159 before White went on 44.
