Australia beat Pakistan by six runs in the fourth one-day international despite hundreds from Abid Ali and Mohammad Rizwan in Dubai Friday.

Pakistan finished on 271/8 in their 50 overs with Ali scoring 112 on ODI debut and Rizwan 104.

Australia lead the five-match series 4-0.

Earlier, Glenn Maxwell missed a fighting hundred by two runs but still guided Australia to 277/7.

The dashing middle-order batsman knocked three sixes and nine boundaries in his 98 off 82 balls to lift Australia - sent into bat by Pakistan - from 140/5 to an imposing total on a slow Dubai stadium pitch.

A new look Pakistan team - with Imad Wasim as skipper after Shoaib Malik was ruled out with a rib injury - had caught Australia napping at 101/4 when Maxwell walked in.

He repaired the innings with a 134-run partnership for the sixth with Alex Carey who finished with 67-ball 55 for his maiden fifty with three boundaries.

Maxwell was bowled by fast bowler Usman Shinwari off a no-ball when on 76, was within a stroke of his second ODI hundred when he was run out while attempting a double run.

Carey supplemented Maxwell well, as the pair beat the previous sixth wicket stand in Australia-Pakistan ODIs of 90 between Dirk Wellham and Rod Marsh in Sydney in 1981.

Mohammad Hasnain (2/52), Wasim (2/56) and Yasir Shah (2/57) shared the wickets.

Australia, who had already won the five-match series 3-0, brought in fast bowlers Kane Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile in place of Pat Cummins and Jason Behrendorff.

Pakistan were forced to make two changes as Malik suffered rib injury and opener Imam-ul-Haq fever to withdraw from the game, handing opener Ali and batsman Saad Ali ODI debuts.

The last match will also be played in Dubai Sunday.
