With his 42-year-old captain Misbah-ul-Haq expected to call time on his career this year, some have suggested this tour might mark the end of an era with Younis, 39, following suit. Australia needed more 5 wickets to win after lunch and their bowlers put up a clinical performance to hand Australia a morale-boosting series win. Warner fell when he missed a big swing and was bowled by Wahab Riaz after a 27-ball blitz.

Younis Khan's disappointment at Pakistan's perilous position in the third Test has been mitigated by his first century in Australia and proximity to the exclusive 10,000-run club, he said on Friday. He was caught in the deep off Nathan Lyon in the 30th over.

The on-field umpire did not give that out initially, but there was slight spike in the snicko detected by the third umpire, after Steven Smith made a decision to review.

Renshaw was struck on the top of his helmet from a powerful sweep shot in the 77th over from Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed from the bowling of Steve O'Keefe. He in fact smacked Lyon for 20 runs off his final over of the day. Sadly for him and Pakistan, nobody in the second innings showed any resistance and got out cheaply.

Babar Azam (9) started his innings with a lot of promise but he soon became Hazlewood's second victim when he was trapped LBW in the fifth over of the day.

It was Pakistan's 12th straight Test defeat in Australia.

Australia romp to victory over Pakistan for series sweep

Pakistan had secured the numero Uno position in ICC Test rankings previous year after securing a 2-2 draw in England during a four-match series in July-August.

Pakistan resumed at 55 for one on day five of the third Test, having been set a target of 465 following Australia's declaration on day four, but were dismissed 220 runs short.

Misbah-ul-Haq has been Pakistan's most successful Test captain with 24 victories from 53 matches, losing 18 and drawing 11.

Australia 538 for 8 decl.

Opening alongside Khawaja, who moved up in the order because Matt Renshaw was ruled out of the match after being assessed for concussion, Warner hit Yasir Khan for six, six, four and four in the fourth over of the innings, and then clouted Imran Khan for four consecutive boundaries in the seventh over.

Josh Hazlewood took 3 wickets while Nathan Lyon bagged two important wickets making it hard for Pakistan to bag a face-saving draw.
