Despite a heroic effort, Pakistan fell just short of an amazing Test victory, as Australia beat them by 39 runs in Brisbane.

Sami Aslam - 4.5

The opener failed with the bat on both occasions, posting just 37 across the Test, despite scoring the second-highest score in the first innings.

Azhar Ali - 6

Five runs in the first innings simply weren't enough, but Ali played a big part in Pakistan's run chase, even if it was early. A 71 in the tourists' second dig set the tone for their fantastic innings, and the opener was a big part of that.

Babar Azam - 4

Didn't have much of an impact with the bat at all, collecting just 33 runs with the bat.

Younis Khan - 5.5

A duck in the first innings wasn't how Khan would have envisaged his series to start, but he bounced back strong in Pakistan's second innings, but an ill-timed reverse sweep on 65 saw him throw away his wicket.

Misbah-ul-Haq - 4

The captain had a Test to forget, scoring just nine runs across both innings' and was dismissed by Jackson Bird both times.

Asad Shafiq - 9

The hero of the match for Pakistan. Shafiq's 137 from 207 kept Pakistan in the Test and almost got them to victory, but an unfortunate wicket with his side at 9/449 saw them fall just short of the target.

Sarfraz Ahmed - 6.5

A resilient 59 not out in the first innings, Sarfraz was the only Pakistani to put up a fight as they fell for just 142.

Wahab Riaz - 6

Five wickets in the Test plus a strong 30 in the second innings saw Riaz make an impact across the Test match.

Yasir Shah - 6.5

Shah's 71-run ninth-wicket partnership with Shafiq almost helped Pakistan to victory, but a lapse in concentration saw him run out on 33 to end the chase 39 runs short.

Mohammad Amir - 7

Amir was the best of the Pakistan bowlers, taking five wickets over the course of the match and he looked the most dangerous. A 48 with the bat in the second innings contributed to the tourists' big total.

Rahat Ali - 4.5

Ali took just two wickets with the ball and gave up 114 runs in the process, and didn't have a chance to impact with the bat either.
