Steven Smith - Man of the series: The turnaround since Hobart - the way we have played - is how we want to play our cricket. It's been outstanding. Guys have scored runs and bowled good areas. The quicks have done a good job. Nathan and SOK (Steve O'Keefe) have been good too, particularly Nathan in Melbourne. A satisfying 3-0. It's a great place to play (my 50th Test). Pakistan have played some very good cricket, particularly in Brisbane and Melbourne. We are playing some good cricket and hopefully we can carry that form into the limited-overs cricket and close the summer on a good note.

David Warner - Man of the Match: Fantastic comeback. We kicked Hobart away and moved on. Boys played great cricket and we have a comprehensive 3-0 whitewash. I think it is always fun to play in front of your home crowd. It's fun when the crowd gets behind you. That (second innings yesterday) was where you want to be in a Test match. We will see what Darren has to offer .

Misbah-ul-Haq: I think it was a tough series. Full credit to Australia, they played well. Outplayed us in every department, utilizing the conditions very well. We have a few youngsters performing - Azhar, Shafiq and Sarfraz. They will travel to other parts of the world, to Australia and perform well. In Gabba, the way we played in the second innings gave us a lot of self-belief, but the last day at MCG was difficult to take. We were demoralized. Otherwise, overall, if you see the number of positives for Pakistan (there were many). Australia is a great place to learn as an Asian side. Thanks to the crowd. Thanks for your hospitality.
