David Warner blitz, record partnership vs Pakistan make Australia Day memorable

Pakistan have won only one out their seven games against the hosts on this tour
On being asked to bowl first, Pakistan nearly got the flawless start when Mohammad Amir enticed an edge from Warner with his first ball.
Australia has beaten Pakistan in 5th and last One-Day International (ODI) by 57 runs on Thursday.
Warner's abundant summer of runs continued with 179 in a record stand with maiden century-maker Head, who hit 128 to propel the home team to 369-7 after captain Steve Smith won his fifth successive toss in the series and opted to bat on Australia Day.
Warner's sixth hundred of the 2016-17 calendar ties an ODI record set by Kumar Sangakkara, while Head's maiden worldwide 50-over century suggests a destructive partnership that could be in place for this year's Champions Trophy.
Pakistan were bowled out for 312 after a century from Babar Azam. Starc's next over snared Mohammad Hafeez off an edge. The match will start at 08:20 am Pakistan time, which corresponds to 01:20 pm Australian time, 03:20 GMT and 08:00 am according to Indian time.
Pakistan, meanwhile, are likely to make a couple of changes in their lineup as they look for a win to salvage some pride after an abysmal tour, during which they were also whitewashed in the three-Test series. But not only was Head's 128 from 135 balls therefore significant historically, so too could it prove important as Australia's one-day XI takes shape ahead of the Champions Trophy later this year.
Azhar Ali (6) went early on in the chase but a big partnership between Sharjeel Khan (79 off 69 balls) and Babar Azam gave Pakistan hope of an unlikely win.
Even though Pakistan lost seven wickets in the final 10 overs, Australia still posted a formidable total of 369 for seven in the 50 overs. Umar Akmal's late onslaught of 46 off 40 balls couldn't challenge Australia's dominant bowling, led by Mitchell Starc, who finished with 4-42 and also plucked a smart two-handed low catch at third man.
It proved costly as Warner raced through to a 34-ball fifty and 78-ball century.
Junaid Khan and Hasan Ali took two wickets each for Pakistan.
