Pakistan fell short of completing a world record run chase in the first Test against Australia in Brisbane.

The tourists, set a target of 490, began the final day on 382 for 8 and were on target for a famous victory until Asad Shafiq fell for 137 at 449 for 9.

Yasir Shah was run out by Steve Smith's direct hit from second slip 4 balls later as Pakistan won by 39 runs.

The record for the highest successful Test chase is West Indies' 418 for 7 to beat Australia in Antigua in 2003.
