Australia will be aiming to clean sweep the series after winning the first four matches.

Australia brought in fast bowler Jason Behrendorff in place of Nathan Coulter-Nile.

Pakistan came close to winning the fourth match on Friday but despite centuries from debutant Abid Ali and Mohammad Rizwan lost the game by six runs.
