Australia wrapped up a 2-0 series win over Pakistan by winning the day-night second Test by an innings and 48 runs.

The hosts scored 589-3 declared – with David Warner smashing 335 not out – in their first innings and made Pakistan follow on after they hit 302 in reply.

The tourists resumed on 39-3 on day four and were bowled out for 239 – Shan Massod was the top scorer with 68.

It was a second consecutive innings win for the hosts after their victory in Brisbane in the first Test.

Pakistan’s Masood, who put on 103 with Asad Shafiq (57), was the first wicket to fall on the fourth day when he was caught by Mitchell Starc off Lyon.

Lyon took four more wickets, with the other being taken by bowler Josh Hazlewood, while Pat Cummins ran out Mohammad Abbas to secure Australia’s victory.
