David Warner was not in his usual destructive self but effective nevertheless, his first worldwide century since completing the ball-tampering ban setting up Australia's 41-run win over Pakistan in the World Cup on Wednesday.

"I know he's been working a bit with JL (coach Justin Langer) and Punter (assistant coach Ricky Ponting) to just make sure he's in the right mind frame, but he's playing nicely", said opening partner Finch.

David Warner was neither booed nor questioned about his approach at Taunton as Pakistan bore the brunt of his return to form, as the southpaw scored a century in hard circumstances.

Babar Azam (30), along with Imam however did not get bogged down and fought back to put on a half-century partnership for the second wicket.

Apart from Warner and Finch, nobody in the Australian lineup scored more than Shaun Marsh's 23 as Amir continued to trouble the batsmen with his movement off the seam.

Pakistan, however, will need to show the same intensity they did against England to pull off a win on Wednesday. Nathan Coulter-Nile, 9. Pat Cummins, 10.

Pakistan had a slide of 3-11 and its hopes appeared to fade at 147-5 when Hafeez was caught on the deep midwicket boundary to a rank full-toss from part-timer Finch, bowling slow left-arm orthodox, and Shoaib Malik was caught behind from an inside edge off Cummins in the next over.

Starc wasn't done, as he cleaned up Amir two balls later, before Sarfaraz (40) in a bid to retain strike found himself was run-out by Maxwell.

Thanks to match-winning innings by Hafeez who was named the player of the match for his 62-ball 84 knock.
