SYDNEY: Australia on Saturday clinched a series clean sweep with an emphatic 220-run win over Pakistan in the third Test at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

Green shirts failed to chase the 465 runs target and were all out shortly before tea on the final day for 244.

It was Pakistan’s 12th straight defeat since their last Test win here 22 years ago. Australia completed a series clean sweep after a 39-run win at the Gabba and an innings and 18-run victory in Melbourne.

Limited overs skipper Sarfraz Ahmed topscored with a fighting unbeaten 72 off 70 balls while Australia’s David Warner was named man of the match for his scintillating hundred.

Azhar Ali finished as the highest Pakistan run-scorer in a series in Australia with 406 at 81.20.

The history maker batsman Younis Khan missed out on becoming the first Pakistan batsman to reach 10,000 Test runs when he was caught in the deep off spinner Nathan Lyon for 13.

Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq resisted for 98 balls before he went after O’Keefe and skied to the safe hands of Lyon at mid-off for 38 – his highest score of a struggling series. He was given a generous ovation as he left the SCG.

Pakistan will tour the West Indies for a four-match series in April.
