Pakistan’s Nightmare in Australia ends with another WHITEWASH

CricketPakistan's Nightmare in Australia ends with another WHITEWASH

Srinagar: Pakistan’s nightmare Test tour of Australia has ended with another Whitewash as hosts secured a comfortable 8 wicket win in Sydney giving opener David Warner a fairytale farewell.

It was a fairytale ending for Warner, who scored 57 runs in 75 balls, as Australia chased down the target of 130 runs and completed whitewash in the series.

Marnus Labuschagne also impressed with unbeaten 62 and added 119 runs for the second wicket with Warner after the home side lost opener Usman Khawaja for a duck in the first over of the run-chase.

Sajid Khan claimed wickets of both Australian openers during the second innings.

Earlier Pakistan were dismissed for 115 in their second innings earlier today.

Mohammad Rizwan and Aamer Jamal put on 42 precious runs for the eighth wicket before Rizwan fell to a leg slip catch off Nathan Lyon for 28.

Jamal followed shortly afterwards for 18 caught in the deep off Pat Cummins.

Pakistan have performed poorly in Australia, losing 17 Tests on the trot with their last win in 1995.

Australia had already wrapped up the series, before the Sydney fixture, after victories in the first two Tests in Perth and Melbourne.
