lbw appeal, becomes a bat-pad appeal as it pops to silly point, and it's been given out caught. It seemed to slide on with the angle as he pressed forward to defend, and that looked like pad onto bat and Azhar takes it after a bit of a juggle. Lyon doesn't review, and Pakistan have wrapped up the most dominant series victory possible. They are now No. 3 in the Test rankings.
1.35pm: Looks like there won't be an interview of Younis, so that brings an end to our coverage of this game. A historic win for Pakistan, some incredible records set over the course of the series, and it's been a pleasure to bring it to you. Hope you enjoyed it. Until next time, it's goodbye from me and Raghav. We'll leave you with a few more comments:
Imran: "I was waiting desperately to see how many "Really" misbah uses in his speech. By the look of it he only used the word twice this time. "
naveed: "In the process, Zulfiqar and Yasir made us forget that Pakistan's great spinner, Saeed Ajmal, was banned from international cricket"
Dabeer Hasan: "@Najam: Plzzz take more showers when New Zealand is Batting during Pak vs NZ series :p"
Misbah: "It's really an honour for me to lead this side, the way everybody played. Every individual performed and I'm really happy about that. I can't describe my feeling. We were working really hard and playing good cricket but not winning, we just ensured that we would keep on doing the basics. It hurt us the way we lost the [ODI] series and we were determined to come back and it's been remarkable for our side. It's really good to have a youngster like [Yasir]. Playing a side like Australia, for the first time, he's got really good temperament, and in the coming future he can really deliver for us. The way Azhar Ali, Ahmed Shehzad and Asad Shafiq have batted, and Sarfraz is really a find. These guys are going to play for the next 7-8 years and we have a side for the future. Everybody is in form [ahead of the New Zealand series], everyone is full of confidence, and after that the World Cup."
Lots of awards for Pakistan's players, including "most colourful innings" to Azhar Ali. The big ones: Misbah-ul-Haq is the man of the match and Younis Khan is the man of the series.
First up, Michael Clarke: "They played outstanding cricket in both Tests and we have been outplayed. Unfortunately, all three facets [failed]. It's been the track record of Australian cricket [in Asia] for a long time, unfortunately."
1.25pm It's time for the presentation.
1.20pm Australia lost their last five wickets for eight runs. And that meant some of you missed the climactic moments:
Najam: "Went away to take a shower and before I returned it was all over. Perhaps the only half hour of play I missed in this match -_-"
Arjmand: "Is it one of those times, when a different Pakistan breaks out? Or a new era, where a new breed is gelling well with their seasoned veterans? Whatever, be the case, it is a much needed performance for all the fans who endured a really bad phase of Pakistan cricket. Very well done Team Pakistan. This is more like the Pakistan, Imran, Javed, Wasim and Others had built..."
Richard: "At the point that Pakistan had scored 507 runs - Australia's total for the entire match - they had only lost 3 wickets."
Hadi: "If nobody realized, Zulfi picked up his second 5 for!" Indeed. I was a bit too caught up in the excitement to notice :)
1.13pm Pakistan win by 356 runs. It's their biggest win over any team by a runs margin. There was never really any doubt they would wrap it up. Smith and Marsh batted well in the morning but there was just too much time left in the match for them to be able to pull off the draw. Once Pakistan got through to the lower order, their spinners just ran through them. Clever captaincy from Misbah to keep them on in tandem with the second new ball. They really made that extra grip and zip count.
down the track now and he hits it, or mishits it, uppishly towards long-on but it drops well short of him
length ball outside off. Siddle goes on the back foot to defend
Here's Lyon, who batted pretty well at No. 3 in the first innings. Australia still have a 0.000000000001 per cent chance of saving this game.
got him! this was straighter and tossed up slowly, and Starc went for the big hit over the leg side. He missed, and the ball turned past his inside edge and left his stumps in an awful mess
big appeal for caught behind as it beats the outside edge again, through to the keeper. Given not out, no review
angles it in from wide of the crease, doesn't turn as much, and Starc is beaten stretching forward to defend
back around the wicket now
googly, back of a length outside off, and he goes deep in his crease, lets it come on, and dabs it away towards third man
tossed up high outside off and he drives powerfully down the ground and uproots middle stump at the other end. The bowler appeals, having got his foot on it, but Siddle was safely in his crease. They check with the third umpire anyway
full, angled across towards off, defended off the front foot
stays over the wicket to Starc
quicker and flatter, angled in towards off, and he gets forward to defend towards point
down the track, doesn't get to the pitch, it goes through straight as he tries to drive through the off side and he inside edges onto his pad
around the wicket to Siddle
a little fuller and straighter and he clips it down to mid-on
tossed up a bit more and he gets some bounce. He gets some glove on it but it drops down in front of short leg
a touch shorter on the same line and he goes back to block into the off side
fullish outside off, defends off the front foot
Now Babar goes over the wicket to Starc
googly down the leg side. He misses the flick and it bounces off Sarfraz's gloves towards fine leg
over the wicket now
tossed up high outside off, angling in, and he defends at full stretch
full outside off and he gets forward to block down the ground
now he reaches out to play a tossed up ball outside off and it goes through straight and beats his outside edge. Lovely bowling
this one turns and bounces sharply from closer to off and he gets forward and is hit high on the front thigh
