DN Test: Pakistan on verge of series defeat against Australia

David Warner finally earns his absolution with Adelaide epic

Nathan Lyon grabbed five wickets to spin Australia to an emphatic innings and 48-run victory in the second test against Pakistan as the hosts swept the series 2-0.

Pakistan were resilient, fighting out nearly five hours on day four but in the end it was futile after Australia 3 (dec)-590 batted them out of the match on the first two days.

Opener David Warner's triple century set Australia on course for another big win, following his 154 in the first test. Marnus Labuschagne also produced back-to-back centuries as the Australian batsmen dominated an inexperienced Pakistan attack.

These facts have underlined the case for pink-ball cricket, something the Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts had magnified by quipping in Brisbane that he would personally like to see Australia's Test series against India next summer played exclusively as day-night matches. We said we didn't want to give up at any stage. "It is among the top one or two innings ever by an Australian".

Iftikhar Ahmed and Mohammad Rizwan were both on 10 not out with Pakistan still needing 120 runs to make Australia bat again after being made to follow on. Pakistan did have some successes during the tour.

After Australia enforced follow-on, Pakistan again got off to a poor start and were reeling at 39/3 when stumps were drawn.

Australia's dominance of the visitors in Adelaide was so thorough, Head joined David Warner in the record books - albeit not for any feats of cricketing heroism like Warner's sensational first innings knock of 355.

"He's a good enough player".

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali on Monday admitted that they were beaten by a better side as he acknowledged that it was hard to get results with a young side in Australia.

Masood then took to Lyon, dancing down the wicket to hit a straight drive for four to bring up his sixth test half-century.

Shaan had looked risky for Pakistan, playing square of the wicket with great power as he combined for a 103-run fourth-wicket stand with Asad Shafiq.

Lyon, from round the wicket to the right-hander, extracted some turn and bounce, and had Shafiq caught at leg-slip 20 minutes out from Tea.

He trapped trapped Yasir Shah (13) lbw in front with a ball that skidded and sped on and went to the dinner break midway through his 25th over when Shaheen was caught at mid-off by Hazlewood.
