Pakistan rue not being better prepared for Australia conditions

David Warner celebrates reaching 300 runs

Then they tumbled. He took two wickets in the first session Monday and three in the second before Australia finished off a victory by an innings and 48 runs under lights to complete a two-test series sweep with more than a day to spare.

The first test against New Zealand is a day-night affair in Perth, followed the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne and the series finale in Sydney from January 3.

Four years after sweeping Misbah-ul-Haq's Pakistan 3-0, Australia maintained their ideal record against the south Asians on home soil and continued their recent good form in tests since retaining the Ashes in England.

However, the real challenger for the summer is yet to cross the Tasman.New Zealand are the No.2 Test team in the world and Paine has been getting up early to watch the Black Caps battle it out in their Test against England which will conclude on Tuesday.

Australia picked up all the 120 points on offer against Pakistan, and are now with a total of 176 points.

One consideration is the lack of cricket for Neser, who stayed with the Australian team in Adelaide during the second test while Pattinson and Bancroft were released to Sheffield Shield duties.

Pakistan is desperate for Australia's Test cricketers to end their two-decade absence from the country, captain Azhar Ali says. But very positive for the future, we will learn a lot. "The bowlers and myself will learn a lot from here and will try to make things better".

Chiefs dominate Raiders, take control of AFC West
Kansas City's defense swarmed Derek Carr , forcing two first-half interceptions - one of which was returned for a touchdown. Oakland was held to just three points until finally scoring its first touchdown of the game with under a minute left.

Starc, who took 6-66 in the first innings, grabbed his seventh wicket for the test by dismissing Pakistan captain Azhar Ali for nine, with Steve Smith diving for a fine catch in the slips.

Shafiq, who has 12 Test hundreds to his name, proved to be Masood's equal and brought up his 25th half-century with a single off Hazlewood.

Lyon returned to break another stubborn 47-run partnership between number six Iftikhar Ahmed and wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan, with Marnus Labuschagne finally catching a nick at short leg after grassing three earlier chances in the test.

Surprise first-innings century-maker Yasir Shah could not repeat the heroics and was Lyon's next victim, out lbw for 13 after a review.

Australia's victory came on the back of their mammoth 589 for three declared, driven by David Warner's memorable 335 not out.

Australia won the first Test in Brisbane by an innings and five runs. It happened in the 82nd over of the visitors' second innings. "Just an exceptional effort by the boys".

It was Australia´s sixth consecutive win in a pink ball Test - four of them at Adelaide - with every day-night Test played so far since the concept was introduced in 2015 producing a result.
