Australia [ Images ] completed a record 13th consecutive victory win over a Pakistan side that self-destructed against the gentle off-spin of Marcus North at Lord's on Friday.
North took six for 55 to join team mate Shane Watson [ Images ] on the Lord's bowling honours board, a pairing nobody could have predicted when the first match in a two-Test series started on Tuesday.
His figures were the best ever returned by an Australian spinner at Lord's.
Pakistan, set a record 440 to win, succumbed for 289 before tea on the fourth day to extend a miserable losing streak which started in 1999.
Australia's 150-run victory put them one ahead of Sri Lanka [ Images ], who have won each of their 12 Tests against Bangladesh.
Shahid Afridi [ Images ], captaining his country for the first time in a Test, was particularly culpable on Friday.
Afridi lasted only four balls, dabbing two through the slips before playing a wild shot across the line off North. The ball flew high to the mid-wicket boundary where Michael Hussey [ Images ] took a well-judged catch.
Pakistan started the day in reasonable shape at 114 for one with Salman Butt [ Images ], whose application in both innings has shown up his team mates, on 58.
Butt took 18 from two overs from Mitchell Johnson [ Images ] and proceeded serenely to 92 with a series of flashing drives and deft cuts when Ricky Ponting [ Images ] opted bring on North instead of his specialist spinner Steven Smith.
North struck immediately when Butt over-balanced trying to reach his first delivery down the leg-side and Tim Paine dived forward to complete the stumping.
Umar Akmal [ Images ] (22) lofted a six from North over long-leg which sailed close to a slumbering spectator but then played a careless cut off North three balls before the lunch and the ball flew straight to a grateful Michael Clarke [ Images ] at slip.
Debutant Umar Amin gave a glimpse of his abilities with 33 before he was smartly caught at short leg by Simon Katich [ Images ] and North accounted for the irresponsible Afridi in the same over.
Kamran Akmal joined brother Umar by driving North for six during a brisk innings before he was bowled by Smith for 46 with a delivery which hurried through his attempted pull shot.
Ponting moved Hussey to mid-wicket where Mohammad Aamer [ Images ] (19) obligingly hit the next delivery from North to give the off-spinner his first five-wicket haul in a Test match.
North finished off the innings when Danish Kaneria (2) hit the first ball of his 18th over to Ponting at short-cover.
