A dominant bowling performance has Australia Under 16s to a 3-1 series advantage against Pakistan Under 16s in Melbourne.


In the fourth match at the CitiPower Centre, Australia bundled out the hosts for just 74, before chasing down the target with seven wickets to spare.


The hosts won the toss and elected to bowl first.


Mitchell Pascoe (4-41) and new inclusion Will Sanders (3-16) led the charge, as no Pakistan player passed 15 with the bat.


Brock Larance (1-8) bowled six maidens in his eight overs, while Michael Herbst claimed 1-5 from four overs.


In reply, Australia lost Kyle Brazell for a golden duck, before Jet Liebke (27) and Yash Pednekar (24) took control of proceedings.


Both were dismissed with the score on 55, before Jake Fraser-McGurk (18 not out) and Larance (five not out) guided Australia to victory in the 19th over.


The fifth one-day match will be played on Thursday, ahead of a T20 on Friday to round out the series.
