AUSTRALIA v PAKISTAN, FIRST TEST, DAY 4:

Score: Australia (580) beat Pakistan (240 and 335) by an innings and five runs.

Summary: An impressive century to rising star Babar Azam, and an equally fluent 95 from new wicketkeeper Muhammad Rizwan, meant it took the Australians a little longer than they would've liked on Sunday to seal victory. Josh Hazlewood's four wickets ensured they still wrapped the match up well before stumps, though.

Man of the moment: Babar Azam. Much hype has surrounded the talented batsman this summer and, after a disappointing dismissal in the first innings, he has displayed his class with just his second Test century.

Key moment: Nathan Lyon took only one second-innings wicket but it was the big one, ending Babar's resistance and a partnership with Rizwan that looked set to ensure Australia would need to bat again.

Stat of the day: The win took Australia's unbeaten streak in Tests at the Gabba to 31 matches since 1988.

Quote of the day: "We'll ask Virat (Kohli), see if we can get his permission to play here, maybe even get a pink-ball Test if he's in a good mood," Australian captain Tim Paine when asked if he wanted to host India in Brisbane next summer.
