Last updated on: October 16, 2013 19:45 IST

George BaileyAustralia on Wednesday provided only the second instance of five batsmen scoring fifties in a team innings in ODIs.

- Scorecard

The only time this had happened before was in 2008 when Nasir Jamshed (61), Younis Khan (79), Mohammad Yousuf (72), Shoaib Malik (63) and Misbah-ul-Haq (55*) scored fifties against Zimbabwe at Karachi.

However, Australia's instance is unique in the sense that all first five batsmen scored fifties together. In Pakistan’s case # 2 to #6 scored fifties, with #1 Salman Butt getting run-out on 4.
