Pakistan blow historic Test win hopes
Australia produced an amazing fightback to defeat Pakistan by 36 runs in the second Test in Sydney and clinched the three-match series.
The hosts looked doomed to defeat going into day four just 80 runs ahead with two second innings wickets remaining. But Michael Hussey hit an unbeaten 134 in a 123-run ninth-wicket partnership with Peter Siddle to set a modest victory target of 176.
However Pakistan could not handle the pressure of going for a first Test win over Australia since 1995 as spinner Nathan Hauritz took five for 53, with Mitchell Johnson claiming three for 27 and Doug Bollinger chipped in with two wickets to dismiss the tourists for just 139.
Only twice in 132 years has Australia come back from a bigger deficit to secure a victory as they take an unassailable 2-0 lead into the third and final Test in Hobart, which begins on January 14.
