Beaten by a better side, says Azhar Ali after Australia drubbing

Spinner Nathan Lyon grabbed five wickets as Australia swept to an emphatic victory in the second Test against Pakistan at Adelaide by an innings and 48 runs.

Pakistan's unlikely centurion Yasir Shah on Sunday revealed why he was able to score big against Australia in the first innings of the second Test.

Azhar Ali insists the Test progress made by Babar Azam means Pakistan have a major positive to take out of their heavy series defeat to Australia. His record is unbelievably good with the pink ball. "It is among the top one or two innings ever by an Australian".

He was forced to miss the last home summer while serving a 12-month ban for ball-tampering, but is now savouring a dream return on Australian pitches, with 489 runs from his two innings in the series.

Following their 2-0 series win over Pakistan at home, Australia strengthened their hold on the second spot in the ICC World Test Championship Table, but are still a fair way behind India who lead comfortably with 360 points.

"I'd like to congratulate Australia, especially David Warner for his triple hundred".

"One of three guys to play a test match for Australia to not bat bowl or take a catch".

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali on Monday admitted that they were beaten by a better side as he acknowledged that it was hard to get results with a young side in Australia.

But Lyon struck again, with Shafiq getting a thin edge to a flighted ball that carried to Warner at slip and he was gone for 57.

Lyon then removed Iftikhar Ahmed, caught at short leg by Labuschagne for a battling 27, before trapping surprise first-innings century-maker Yasir Shah lbw for 13.

A comical mix-up between tail-enders saw Pat Cummins run out Mohammad Abbas for the final wicket to wrap up the match.

It capped another commanding victory for Australia who exploited Pakistan's inexperienced bowling attack, which includes two teenagers.

Best-known as a spin bowler, the 33-year-old's highest score in his previous 36 Tests was just 42.
