Younus Khan says he is not the greatest Pakistani batsman

Earlier, after the opening session was washed out for the second day in a row, Younus Khan completed an imperious 175 not out before running out of partners as Pakistan were dismissed for 315, still 223 behind Australia's first innings 538-8. Pakistan opener Azhar Ali added just 13 to his overnight 58 before he and Younis blundered when considering a quick single, resulting in a run-out.

It's an extraordinary start to a Test career that no other Australian has enjoyed in nearly 100 years, but to Peter Handscomb, it nearly never was.

2- David Warner scored the second fastest fifty in the history of test cricket.

Debutant Sharjeel Khan began the chase in buccaneering fashion but holed out for 40 to leave Pakistan 55-1 after day four of the final Test in Sydney.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who publicly contemplated retiring after losing the series in Melbourne, was one of many Pakistanis to gift cheap runs with misfields.

In search of wickets before stumps, Australia declared, and they were rewarded as aggression proved to be undoing of Sharjeel - who hit six fours and one maximum in 38 balls - the opener caught by Warner at mid-wicket off Lyon.

Probably the weirdest part of the game was in the second half, with the Seahawks ahead 25-16 (they also had a PAT blocked, again). According to Fox Sports, it was Kaepernick's first 10-of-10 start in his six-year National Football League career.

The two Pakistan wickets were taken by Josh Hazlewood.

"First time, even though I bat so deep (in the crease), so there you go".

672 - The number of runs conceded by Yasir in the series, the most by any bowler in a three-Test series, surpassing Muttiah Muralitharan's 649 also conceded against Australia in Sri Lanka in 2004.

"I thought I could have gotten away with it", Handscomb said. Handscomb's ton came off 195 balls with nine boundaries.

The all-rounder option could rest between Zimbabwe-born Hilton Cartwright or Agar, who Lehmann puts in the versatile category, saying "he's certainly got the talent to be a batting all-rounder or a spinning all-rounder". "I think he'll be able to bowl again at some stage in the game", Arthur said. Renshaw also successfully overturned a leg before wicket decision to leg-spinner Yasir Shah on 137 when a review showed he had edged onto his pad.

Pakistan are facing their 12th straight defeat since their last Test win in Australia in Sydney 22 years ago.
