Shafiq gives Aussies fright in thrilling 490 run chase: 1st Test, Day 5 (Gabba)

Needing a world-record 490 to win the Test batting fourth, Pakistan's ninth-wicket partnership of Asad Shafiq (137) and Yasir Shah (33) chipped away with a 71 run stand that almost won the game against the odds.

The end game came quickly at 450 with Starc getting Shafiq and Yasir carelessly run out to secure a 39 run win for Australia.

Australia 429 (Smith 130, Handscomb 105, Wahab 4-89, Amir 4-97) and 5 for 202 dec (Khawaja 74, Smith 63) beat Pakistan 142 (Sarfraz 59*) and 450 (Shafiq 137, Azhar 71, Starc 4-119) by 39 runs.
