That's all we have from this lopsided Test series. Australia will now get ready to host New Zealand while Pakistan will return home and wait for Sri Lanka. Do join us for all the action in future. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!

Australian skipper, Tim Paine says that he is really happy and mentions that they played fantastic cricket in the last two Tests. On contributions from everyone, Paine jokingly says that not all the batsman got a chance to bat but David and Marnus were superb. Tells that Burns at the top was good too. On Warner's triple century, Paine says that it was an unbelievable knock from him. Feels that it is not easy to bat that long. On his declaration before Warner's 400 chances, Paine says that they did think that and spoke to Warner about it but David was okay with the declaration. Talking about Labuschagne, Paine says that he is enjoying his success with the bat. On the bowling, Paine says that the wicket was a difficult one and the bowlers kept coming entire time and it was an awesome performance from them. On the upcoming three-Test match series, Paine jokes that he would want to pouch a few more catches than he did. Tells that if they continue on the path they are right now, the series will be an exciting one.

Pakistan skipper, Azhar Ali starts by congratulating the Australian team and David Warner for his incredible triple hundred. Tells that it is always hard to come to Australia and beat them. Adds they have been beaten by the better side. Admits that they were poor in all three departments. Feels they need to improve their bowling and work on controlling the scoring rate. Tells that the batters need to put up big partnerships. Mentions that Yasir's fight along with Azam's knock in the first innings is a positive. Credits Babar Azam for the way he played in the series and feels that he will be a big start for Pakistan in future. Azhar hopes they can improve and learn from this tour. Ends by thanking Cricket Australia for the hospitality and the fans for their support throughout the series.

PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND SERIES, DAVID WARNER! Starts by saying that he is really happy that they didn't have to bat again. Tells that he was really tired last night and probably slept on the couch. Says that the triple hundred has not sunk in yet. Remembers his friend, late Phillip Hughes, and shares that he looked up to the skies in his memory. Tells that he is focusing on scoring runs. Adds that he backed himself and enjoyed the innings. Reminds that he was out of the game for a while but he has returned and is enjoying the game more than ever. Further says that their next series is against New Zealand and they are a quality unit. Feels that the conditions in Perth, the venue for the first Test against NZ, will suit the Kiwi attack and they will have to adjust accordingly. Finishes off by saying that he will go back and practice more in the nets and try to do his best.

Josh Hazlewood is down for a quick chat. He says that it has been a good couple of weeks for them. Mentions about Cummins' direct hit to finish things off. Reckons that it was a superb performance by the Aussie bowling unit. Praises Starc's effort in the first innings and then Lyon for his fifer. Terms it as a good all-round show. States that he is happy to start the summer in a winning way.

More than Pakistan's batting, their bowling should be faulted. Lacking in experience, there wasn't enough control shown by their young bowlers. Although Shaheen Afridi did impress by picking up three wickets. Unlike Pakistan, Australia's bowling was of top notch. Mitchell Starc wreaked havoc first time around with a 6-wicket haul and then Nathan Lyon left his impact in the final innings with a fifer. All in all, it was a completely dominant performance by Australia as they steamrolled Pakistan in the series and win it 2-0. 60 points more to their tally in the ICC World Test Championship and they are second in the list behind India.

Yet another thumping victory for Australia! Powered by Warner's magnificent triple century and Marnus Labuschagne's 162, the Kangaroos amassed 589 runs on the board. In reply, apart from Babar Azam's fluent knock and Yasir Shah's surprising century, there wasn't any fight shown by Pakistan. Tim Paine enforced the follow-on with a lead of 287 runs and once again the visiting batsmen failed to turn up with the bat. Shan Masood, Asad Shafiq and Mohammad Rizwan offered little resistance but the task in hand required a monumental effort that never came.

Right then, Australia took just under 15 minutes to pick the remaining two wickets and register yet another massive win. They are all smiles. David Warner takes a stump as a souvenir and leads his team off the park. Handshakes going on at the moment.

Josh Hazlewood to Muhammad Musa. OUT! Wow, a direct hit by Pat Cummins to end proceedings. Very rare that you keep this guy out of action. No wickets? No problem. I shall get one through my fielding. Patto takes aim, holds his poise, stands still and fires. Bowled. Okay, run out!!! Australia's golden boy of 2019 has ended this Test match and series with a bull's eye. Fuller ball on off, Musa manages to hit it to the right of mid on. Abbas was going for a non-existent single and Musa sends him back. But Abbas is halfway down and the brilliance of Cummins finds him short. He is so short of his crease that the umpire does not even go upstairs. The Australian players are up in joy. AUSTRALIA WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 48 RUNS and they win their first series in the ICC World Test Championship.

Josh Hazlewood to Muhammad Musa. Beaten! Almost kisses the outside edge. Another beauty from Hazlewood. On a length and on off and middle. It once again shapes away as Musa looks to defend.

81.1 W

Josh Hazlewood to Mohammad Rizwan. OUT! Bowled 'em! No. 9 goes and the Aussies are just a wicket away from a series win. A full ball, tailing in. Rizwan looks to drive but misses and the off pole behind gets disturbed. They check for the front foot no ball but Hazlewood is fine. Third wicket for Hazlewood and Pakistan's last hope of avoiding innings defeat takes a massive dive. A fighting innings from Rizwan though.
