Yasir Shah - Pakistan's first centurion at No. 8 since 2006

His average of 14.06 is the second-lowest average for a batsman with a Test century

Pakistan's lower order resilience delayed Australia's push for a follow-on, which they enforced eventually. Along the way, Yasir Shah scored his maiden first-class century before being the last man out for 113. Yasir's average on tour is an astounding 60.33, but his bowling average is at 100.50. Here's a look at some records the lower order broke on Sunday.
7 - The number of batsmen Test hundreds coming in at No. 8 or below against Australia. The previous instance was in 2017, when Wriddhiman Saha made 117 in Ranchi.
2006 - The last time a Pakistani scored a Test hundred at No. 8. Wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal made 113 against India in Karachi, a Test Pakistan won to take the series 1-0. Yasir is the ninth Pakistani to achieve this feat.

213 - Runs added by the last four Pakistan batsmen in the first innings in Adelaide. This is the second-highest for Pakistan in Australia. The best was in 2016 when the last four added 230 at the Gabba in Brisbane.

2015 - The last time Australia enforced the enforcingfollow-on in Tests, against West Indies in Hobart. They've not chosen to enforce the follow-on on five occasions since. Pakistan were last made to follow-on at Centurion against South Africa in 2013.
