On last day Pakistan resumed on 55 for one, Pakistan needed to bat out five to save the Test but the whole team returned to the pavilion after match of just 64 overs and scored 244.
According to Sources Pakistan Stephen O’Keefe and Josh Hazlewood took three wickets each on Saturday and Sarfraz Ahmed was left alone on 72 not out for Pakistan. It was a 12th successive Test defeat in Australia under Misbah-ul-Haq’s captaincy.
Pakistan’s 42-year-old captain Misbah-ul-Haq’s said his team did not recover from the final day lost in the second Test in Melbourne by an innings and 18 runs after scoring 443 in the first innings.
The captain said “The last day of the MCG was the biggest disappointment of the tour and we got demoralised from that,”he added “This is how it is. Australia is not an easy place.”
Pakistan did not take 20 wickets in any Test. “It’s difficult for any Asian side to come here and take 20 wickets in a Test match. That’s an art and we could not do that and that mainly cost us the series,” Misbah-ul-Haq added.
It was Australia’s first series victory since February last year when they were defeated by South Africa.”You lose your first two Tests of an Australian summer and you are not in a good place,”
Australian Captain Steve Smith said. “I’m really proud of the way the guys have come in and turned it around since then.”Chris Lynn is the top run-scorer in the 2016-17 so far in Big Bash, including three half-centuries with 309 runs from five matches.
Next up is a five-game one-day international series between Australia and Pakistan, beginning on 13 January. Pakistan have to try hard to get this series after they faced defeat in test series
