4.25 Australia's scoring rate - the highest for any team in a series against Pakistan. They bettered India's 4.22 in the 2005-06 tour. Australia, though, have had a better run rate than this in four series.

60.54 Combined average of Pakistan's bowlers - their second worst in any Test series of three or more matches. The only time they averaged worse was in England in 1962, when they averaged 63.83. Pakistan's fast bowlers averaged 48.13 compared to Australia's 27.64. Overall, their quickies average 39.26 in Australia, the worst in any country.

3 Australia batsmen to have scored two centuries in the series - David Warner, Steven Smith and Peter Handscomb. Australia have had only two other series of three or fewer matches where this has happened - against South Africa in 2001-02 and West Indies in 2005-06. Smith and Handscomb also averaged over 100. Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke in the 2011-12 Border-Gavaskar Trophy was the only other series in which two Australia batsmen averaged over 100 after five or more innings.

12.66 Misbah-ul-Haq's average - the worst by any captain to have batted in five or more innings in the top seven in a series in Australia. The previous worst was Jeff Crowe's 13 in 1987-88. Across all series, Misbah's average is the third-worst by a Pakistan captain. Misbah's average was a dismal 7.60 before it received a boost courtesy his 38 in the final innings of the series. On the contrary, Misbah's opposite number, Steven Smith, finished with an average of 110.25.

1.99 Josh Hazlewood's economy rate - the best for an Australia pacer to have bowled a minimum of 20 overs in a home series since Carl Rackermann's 1.83 against the same opposition in 1989-90.

672 Runs conceded by Yasir - the most by any bowler in three-Test series. He went past Muttiah Muralitharan, who conceded 649 runs against Australia at home in 2003-04. Anil Kumble, who played in three matches of the 2003-04 Border-Gavaskar Trophy, gave away 710 runs, but the series comprised four matches. Yasir took eight wickets at an average of 84, strike rate of 111.1 and an economy of 4.53 - all of which are his worst numbers in any series.

103.79 Warner's strike rate. Among batsmen to have scored 300-plus runs in a series, it is the highest for an Australian - beating Adam Gilchrist's 102.69 against New Zealand in 2004-05 - and the fifth-highest overall.

0 Five-wicket hauls in the series - Mitchell Starc's 4 for 36 at the MCG was the best effort. There has been only one other series of three or more matches in history without a five-for, and Pakistan were involved in that too - at home against New Zealand in 1964-65.

406 Azhar Ali's run-tally - the most by any overseas opener in a series of three or fewer matches in Australia. Azhar went past Sunil Gavaskar's 352 runs in 1985-86. Len Hutton scored 411 runs in three matches in 1950-51, but that was a five-Test series. Azhar also became the first Pakistan batsman to score over 400 runs in a series in Australia, beating Mohsin Khan's 390 in 1983-84, and the first Pakistan double-centurion Down Under.
