At one stage on day five Australia looked vulnerable, but two wickets in quick succession saw the hosts pull out a 39-run win against Pakistan.
Matt Renshaw - 7
The 20-year-old looked at home once again for the Aussies, and a maiden half-century (71) on the opening day in just his second Test gave fans another reason to be excited about Renshaw's future in the Test arena.
David Warner - 4.5
Warner combined for just 44 runs during the Test, which isn't a score we're used to seeing from the left-hander, especially given the hot run of form he's been in this year.
Usman Khawaja - 7
After just four runs in the opening innings, Khawaja top-scored in Australia's shortened second innings with 74, as another half-century makes it eight from his last seven first-class matches.
Steve Smith - 8.5
The captain was at the centre of almost every major incident of the Test, and in the end most went the way of the Australians. 130 and 63 with the bat as well as a timely declaration from Smith saw him have a huge impact on the match, and the final wicket run-out topped it off.
Peter Handscomb - 9
Australia's best player of the Test. A maiden Test century (105 from 240) coupled with an unbeaten quickfire 35 saw the Victorian showcase his all-around ability with the bat.
Nic Maddinson - 2.5
What to do with Nic Maddinson. It's early days in his Test career, but with scores of 0, 1 and 4 don't make for good reading at all. Shaun Marsh isn't likely to feature in the Boxing Day Test so Maddinson should keep his spot, but he must absolutely must perform in Melbourne.
Matthew Wade - 5
A disappointing showing from Wade, as seven runs in the first innings were joined by just one before Australia declared in the second. He took six catches across the Test, but a missed stumping on day four and a dropped half-catch on day five saw two massive chances go begging.
Mitchell Starc - 8.5
Seven wickets from Starc saw him as the leading wicket-taker of the Test, but he saved his best for last, taking the key wicket of Asad Shafiq with Pakistan just 41 runs behind and bowling the delivery that led to Yahir Shah's final wicket run-out.
Josh Hazlewood - 6.5
Figures of 3-22 meant Hazlewood dominated the first innings with the ball, but 0-99 in the second just didn't see the fast bowler have the same effect.
Nathan Lyon - 5
His great record at the Gabba didn't continue in this Test, taking just two second innings wickets to finish with figures of 2-139 from 40 overs.
Jackson Bird - 7.5
Six wickets from Bird will see him likely keep his spot for the rest of the series, as the Tasmanian combined for 6-133 over the entire Test, including taking the big wicket of Misbah-ul-Haq both times.
