Well that is all from us from this series. Cricket isn't too far away from UAE. New Zealand are already here and they begin their tour on the 9th of November with the first of three Tests. Australia go back home to face South Africa for a limited over series starting on the 5th of November. Till that time, it's goodbye from us.

!

Misbah-ul-Haq is named the Man of the Match for his hundreds in each innings. Younus Khan is named the Man of the Series for his record-breaking performance with the bat.

!

Lot of awards to be presented... 1.Master blaster award - Misbah-ul-Haq, 2.Best batsmen of the series award - Younus Khan, 3.Fastest Test century award - Misbah-ul-Haq, 4.Most colourful innings award - Azhar Ali, 5.Fastest 100 of the match - Misbah-ul-Haq, 6.Brilliant spell of bowling in the series - Zulfiqar Babar.

!

Australia are in need of a lot of soul-searching after this series. Spin has been a perennial worry for them and they seem to be going nowhere with their technique. They are yet to find a steady number 3. David Warner and Steven Smith were the standouts in the series but the others really need to take the blame on themselves, especially their skipper Michael Clarke.

!

On a flat deck, the Pakistani batsmen were merciless while the Aussies just didn't have any clue against their bowlers. Special mention to Younus Khan who was sublime in the series with the bat scoring 3 consecutive hundreds. Not to forget Misbah who carted the Aussies all over the park en route to the joint-fastest hundred. Azhar Ali scored hundreds in both innings as well.

!

All over then! Pakistan have clean-sweeped the Aussies 2-0 and what a performance this has been. After 20 long years, Pakistan have won a series against Australia, well worth the wait! They completely outplayed the Aussies in every department and what a comeback it has been by them. They lost the ODIs and the T20I but when it mattered the most, they just turned the heat on the Aussies and ran out worthy winners.

Brave fight shown by Australia! The overnight pair of Marsh and Smith continued with the good work and batted for the most part of the first session. Hafeez managed to dislodge this partnership but Pakistan failed to get any more wickets in the session. Smith has batted beautifully and has shown that if you can apply yourself, there is no demons in the wicket. He is just three runs away from a brilliant century and will look to get there and continue batting after that. Do join us in a short while for the post lunch session...

!

PITCH - The wicket continued to be flat and looks no different that Day 1. Wonder how Australia have found themselves in this situation given the way Pakistan have batted on it.

!

Pakistan need 6 wickets to clean-sweep the Aussies. Mitchell Marsh and Steven Smith are at the crease and they truly need a miracle to see this off. The spinners are expected to bowl a lot of overs and the two need to dig deep down. Let us hope we get to see some cracking cricket. Stay tuned for the start of the day.

!

A very warm welcome to all our viewers. How long will Australia survive? or will they survive at all? These are the questions to be answered as we begin proceedings for Day 5 of this intriguing Test match.

!

Pakistan bowled well with the ball and will back themselves to pick up the remaining 6 wickets in 90 overs tomorrow. Australia have a daunting task, to play out the whole day to save the Test, something which they have not done too frequently. Do join us at 0600 GMT (1130 IST) for all the action from the final day's play to see which of the two results pan out tomorrow - A draw or a Pakistan win. Until then, Adios! Take Care!

!

Pakistan seemed poised to inflict more damage but Smith and Marsh have delayed the inevitable, to say the least, with a partnership that has calmed down some nerves. 42 runs in 122 balls, the latter part shows that they have batted for more than 20 overs, which is an achievement.

!

A fine session of cricket with Australia finally showing some fight to take the match to the final day. Set up a mammoth task of chasing down 603, they were 43/3 in next to no time, with Rogers, Maxwell and Clarke shown the door early. Warner and Smith then revived the innings before the former threw his wicket away.

Huge, huge appeal for LBW, turned down! Flighted on middle, Smith comes down the track but is not to the pitch of the ball. Pads it away and it goes off his pads past the leg stump and the keeper. The batsmen run as the keeper puts in a huge appeal but no review taken as Smith was way down the track. No run given as it is a dead ball owing to the fact that Smith did not offer a shot.

!

We are back...

!

Test match is very easy right now for Pakistan. Scoring hundreds at will and taking wickets when needed. Australia have to survive another 126 overs with just 8 wickets in hand. A long, long way ahead. First they need a wicket-less session and none better than skipper Clarke to take up the responsibility. Join us back at 1100 GMT (1630 IST) for the final session of the day. (Who knows, could even be the final one of the match)...

!

Looks like we are witnessing batting on two different pitches - flat when Pakistan were batting and a rank turner now when the Aussies have the willow. They are not able to pick the different types of balls at all and are clearly out of place.

!

Total shambles. That is Australia's state right now. They batted just around 67 overs when the ball was not turning much in the first innings. Now, they have already lost two cheap wickets with the ball turning a mile.

Australia tottering again.
