Pakistan vs Australia 2nd Test Day 3: Pakistan close on victory
The second Test of the two-Test series between Pakistan and Australia is being played in Abu Dhabi these days. Pakistan has strengthened its hold in this match.
Pakistan has strengthened itself in the second Test between Pakistan and Australia at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. On the third day, Pakistan declared their innings at the loss of nine wickets in the second innings with 400 runs. Thanks to the 137 runs gained in the first innings, Pakistan made a huge goal of 538 runs in the fourth innings. The Kangaroo team started to chase this huge target in the fourth innings and it was also worse in the second innings. Opener Shaun Marsh scored just four runs. At the end of the third day, the Kangaroo team had scored 47 runs on a wicket. Upon stumps, Aaron Finch returned to the pavilion after scoring 24 runs and Travis Hayden 17 runs.
Australia has two full days to achieve the goal. In such a situation, his batsmen will have to bat and then bat. Pakistan started the day with 144 runs on two wickets. Azhar Ali, who returned unbeaten on 54 runs on the second day, was run out in a very humorous manner in this match. Azhar, who scored 64 off 141 balls with the help of four fours, played the ball towards the keeper and he thought the ball reached the boundary, but it was not so.
Azhar-ul-Haq dismissed in good innings
In the misunderstanding, Ali and Asad Shafiq (44) started standing in the middle of the wicket and started discussing in such a way that Mitchell Starc gave the ball to wicketkeeper Tim Penn, who screamed in front of the eyes of Azhar and Shafiq, and Azhar had to return to the pavilion. After his departure, Shafiq was out on a total of 235. Babar Azam (99) and captain Sarfraz Ahmed (81) added a 133-run stand for the sixth wicket to strengthen Pakistan’s lead.
Babur, who missed the century by just one run,
Babar, however, could not complete his century as he was declared a leg-before by Mitchell Marsh. Babar played 171 balls and hit six fours and three sixes in his innings. He was dismissed for a total of 368. Nalan Lion made his prey to Bilal Asif (15), Yasir Shah (4). Sarfaraj fell victim to Marnus Labuschagne at the total score of 400. He faced 123 balls in his innings and put a six in addition to five squares. Loyn took 4 wickets for Australia. Marnus has two successes. Stark and Mitchell Marsh got one wicket each.
