Abu Dhabi: Pakistan beat Australia by 356 runs on Monday to win the second test and complete a 2-0 whitewash in the series. Australia was battling hard at lunch chasing a target of 603 runs, but lost three wickets in three overs at resumption of play to be bowled out for 246.

Steven Smith top-scored with 97, but he could not add to his lunchtime score and was out leg before wicket to Zulfiqar Babar in the second ball of the second session. The win was Pakistan's biggest in terms of runs, beating the previous largest margin of 341 runs, achieved against India at Karachi in 2006.

 

It was Pakistan's first series win over Australia in 20 years. Pakistan has won five times before at home, but the last came in 1994.

Brief scores: Pakistan 570/6 decl. & 293/3 decl. (A Ali 100*, Misbah-ul-Haq 101*; M Johnson 2/45) beat Australia 261 & 246 (S Smith 97, D Warner 58; Z Babar 5/120)
