ICMD, Dec 2, 2019:

Australia beat Pakistan by an innings and 48 runs in the second Test at Adelaide Oval on Monday to sweep their two-Test series 2-0.

Pakistan lost their last two wickets after the dinner-break to be bowled out for 239 in their second innings, having been called to follow on by Tim Paine's side.

Nathan Lyon finished with innings best figures of 5-69.

At the dinner break in Adelaide, Pakistan were 229 for eight — still needing to score another 58 to make the hosts bat again.

Pakistan resumed day four on a precarious 39 for three with Masood not out 14 and Shafiq on eight after being bowled out for 302 in their first innings and forced to follow on.

It followed Australia's mammoth 589 for three declared, built around David Warner's exceptional 335 not out — the 10th highest Test score of all time.

Needing 248 to make Australia bat again and avoid a second successive innings defeat, they made a decent effort to reach the milestone. Mohammad Rizwan, in only his third Test, was not out 40. Masood made 68 and Shafiq 57.

While Lyon extracted some life out of the pitch, it offered little for Australia's fast bowlers who were made to toil. -- Courtesy AFP
