Pakistan faced a humiliating 0-3 defeat against Australia with an 8-wicket loss in the third and last Test of the three-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. The match ended on the fourth day with Australia chasing down the target of 130 runs comfortably for the loss of just 2 wickets in the fourth innings of the game.

Speaking of the last Test, which was also the farewell Test for the veteran Australia opener David Warner who curtained off his illustrious Test career, which lasted for 112 Tests across 12 years.

A collapse-driven defeat to hurt Pakistan for a long time

Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first in Sydney, batting first, the visitors were looking in trouble after losing 5 wickets just at the score of 96 runs. But then came a well-fought 94-run partnership for the sixth wicket between wicketkeeper-batter Mohammed Rizwan and spin-bowling all-rounder Agha Salman. Their partnership was followed by the heroic batting performance of number 9 batter and star pacer Aamer Jamal, who played an all-important knock of 82 runs to help Pakistan reach a total of 313 runs. 

While bowling in the first innings, Pakistan managed to restrict Australia to 299 runs, gaining 14 runs lead at the end of the first innings, thanks to another valiant effort from Mianwali lad Aamer Jamal, but now with the ball as he scalped 6 wickets at the cost 69 runs in 21.4 overs.

Even after the first-innings lead, things went drastically against Pakistan in the second innings as they collapsed and got bundled out at the score of 115 runs in the second innings, having debutant Saim Ayub as the leading run-scorer with a knock of 33 runs, hitting 3 fours and a six.

While chasing the target, Australia crossed the line comfortably in 25.5 overs courtesy of two amazing half-centuries scored by the ‘man on his last dance’ David Warner and number 3 batter Marnus Labuschagne. They scored 57 and 62 runs to help Australia score 130 runs for the loss of 2 wickets and win the match by 8 wickets to seal the series by 3-0.
