Steve Smith had quite a silent two-match Test series against Pakistan he failed to get to half-centuries in two innings and there came a disastrous record that awaited the Australian. Prior to the Test series against Pakistan, the right-hander had scored a half-century in all the series that he was a part of but the record came to a standstill as he got out on four and 36 runs in a couple of outings against the Men in Green. However, the Australian team whitewashed the series by 2-0 and climbed to number two spot of the ICC Test Champions Points table. Mitchell Starc's Five-Fer in Adelaide Test Cripples Pakistan, Australia in Commanding Position in AUS vs PAK Day-Night Test 2019.

However, during the series Smith, went on to become the fastest to reach the 7,000 run mark in club Test Cricket and became the 11th Australian to do so. For now, Smith would want to forget the current series and would want to focus on the upcoming Test series against New Zealand which begins on December 12, 2019. Talking about the series, Australia won the series by an inning and 65 runs, whereas they won the second game by an inning and 48 runs.

David Warner went on to be the highest scorer of the series as he made 489 runs in a couple of innings. In the first innings of the second match, he scored 335 runs unbeaten. Prior to this, he had scored a century in the first match. Whereas, Marnus Labuschagne was the second-highest scorer of the series with 347 runs.
