SYDNEY: Australia defeated Pakistan by 220-run on the fifth day of the third test on Saturday to clinch the series 3-0.

The hosts had won the opening day-night test in Brisbane by 39 runs and the second test in Melbourne by an innings and 18 runs.

Just when all eyes were on Younis Khan to complete the last few runs to achieve the remarkable career milestone, Pakistani star batsman Younis Khan fell short of 10,000 Test runs with his dismissal in the final Sydney Test against Australia on Saturday.

Sarfaraz's perfomance remained remarkable as he scored 70 runs in 72 balls. Captain Misbah-ul-Haq scored only 38 runs.

Speaking at the match ceremony, Pakistan Captain Misbah-ul-Haq said, "All credit goes to Australia . We learnt a lot from the game."

Pakistan´s leading series scorer Azhar Ali lasted just six balls into the final day before he was out in a soft dismissal on his overnight score of 11. Azhar tried to work Josh Hazlewood to the leg-side only to bunt the ball back to the bowler for an easy return catch. Azhar finished as the highest Pakistan runscorer in a series in Australia with 406 at 81.20.

Babar Azam followed in Hazlewood´s next over, trapped leg before wicket for nine to end a disappointing series with a total of just 68 runs from six innings.

Nightwatchman Yasir Shah´s 93-ball defiance ended a half-hour before lunch when he was snapped up the slips by fielding substitute Jackson Bird off left-arm spinner Steve O´Keefe for 13.

The highest target successfully chased down in the fourth innings at the Sydney Cricket Ground was Australia´s 288 for two against South Africa in 2006.
