Azam was dropped by Travis Head off Jason Behrendorff on one, took full advantage of the reprieve, driving Marnus Labuschagne for two to complete his 16th ODI hundred off 110 balls.

Babar Azam, who scored 114 in the second game, hit 105  in 115-balls not out on 12 boundaries.

Unbeaten Haq followed his own back-to-back hundreds with a polished 89 for his 11th ODI half-century.
