    Cricket-Youhana hammers 152 off 121 balls

    Yousuf Youhana smashed 152 from 121 balls to lead Pakistan to a 37-run win over an Australian Country XI in a one-day tour match on Wednesday. The Pakistan middle-order batsman hammered 16 fours and a six to lift the touring side to an impressive total of 283 for six from 48 overs after rain briefly halted play.

    Under the Duckworth-Lewis calculation for rain-hit games, the Country XI's target was revised from 284 to 283 from 48 overs.

    Opener Adam Shields made 65 and number three Brian May hit 83 to give the locals some hope but they finished on 245 for six.

    Pakistan won their opening two matches of the triangular one-day series with Australia and India this week. Their next game is against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday.

    Pakistan manager Brigadier Muhammad Nasir said little could be read into Wednesday's result but he was concerned about the repeated failings of his team's top-order batting.

    "The game was good as far as practice goes but we've still got to find some batting form," he said.
