Defending Cricket World Cup champions Australia are roaring toward the 2019 World Cup, winning their sixth consecutive one day international match on Wednesday, as ESPN reported. The win also gave them their second straight series win — this one over Pakistan after defeating India on India’s own home turf. But Pakistan appear to be staggering their way into the World Cup — with only Yasir Shah among their bowlers having claimed more than a single wicket. Now, with the ODI series decided, both teams are likely to take the opportunity to shore up their starting lineups heading into the May tournament in England, in the match the will live stream from Dubai.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the fourth Pakistan vs. Australia ODI match, a game played largely for pride and player evaluation, as Pakistan attempts to salvage something of the pre-World Cup series, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. First ball is scheduled for 3 p.m. Gulf Standard Time on Wednesday, March 27, at 25,000-capacity Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In Pakistan, the game starts at 4 p.m. Pakistan Standard Time.
In Australia, the match gets underway at 10 p.m. Eastern Australia Daylight Time on Wednesday, 8 p.m. Western. In the United States, cricket fans will need to get up bright and early to catch the fourth ODI, with a start time of 7 a.m. ET on Friday, 4 a.m. PT.
Pakistan, in addition to prepping for their World Cup campaign, will also be playing for pride as their performances in the series so far put them in grave danger of a whitewash at the hands of Aaron Finch’s squad. No Pakistan batsman even reached the half-century mark in the third ODI, per CricInfo. If Australia manages to win the final two games of the series, it will mark only the fifth time they have swept a five-game ODI set, and the first since a whitewash at home over West Indies in 2012.
