Pakistan vs Australia (PAK vs AUS) 1st Test: After David Warner ruled the proceedings on Day 2 of the opening Test between Australia and Pakistan, it was Marnus Labuschagne’s turn to shine with the bat and inflict further damage on the visitors. The batsman went on to complete his maiden Test century, added 50 more to his tally but fell short by 15 runs from converting it into a double ton.
Riding on the incredible batting show by their batsmen, Australia posted a gigantic 580 in response to Pakistan’s 240.
Trailing by 340 runs, the visitors started on a dreadful note as speedster Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins rocked the Pakistani top-order. However, Babar Azam and Shan Masood stabilise things after the early blows as the duo added 39 for the fourth wicket. The visitors are currently batting on 64/3 and are still trailing by 276 runs.
Hear Waqar Younis out:
🗣 “(Abbas is) not at his best rhythm … but we’re not losing hope in him, he’s our main man.”
🗣 “It was very obvious that our lengths were not right, especially with the new ball.”
