New Delhi: After a series white-wash by Pakistan, Australian captain Micheal Clarke admits that 'team has not learnt a lesson against spin.' it is the sixth straight loss on the subcontinent against Pakistan.

Australia lost the 2nd test match by 356 runs in two test match series.

Clarke said he had hoped lessons would have been learnt after their 4-0 rout in India early last year.

When India and South Africa Tour are just around the corner, Clarke feels that team has to learn how to face the Indian spin bowling attack.

Australian captain also said, players need a big improvement against spinners to perform better.

Michael Clark is disappointed over the bad form of the whole team leading to their third heaviest loss in all matches on Pak tour.  

"We need to try and look to improve the next time we play in the subcontinent. There's no doubt the players will be happy to go home and play in conditions we are accustomed to," said Clarke, whose team now plays South Africa and India next at home.

It was Pakistan's first series win over Australia since beating them 1-0 at home in 1994.

Australia have now lost 10 Tests out of their last 15 in Asia since 2008, winning just one against Sri Lanka and drawing the remaining four.
