While from Pakistan’s side it was the dominance of duo Azhar Ali and Younis Khan that brought Pakistan to 2 wickets for 126 at by the end of today’s game, leaving a gap of 412 runs.
When the game started in morning, the hosts worked on a steady hammering against improving bowling efforts by Pakistan. Matt Renshaw had to limit his batting ambitions with 184, thanks to Imran Khan. Handscomb and Hilton Cartwright, meanwhile, maintained patience. After his double century, Renshaw got stopped by Imran using the crease and line, leading to a hasty false stroke. Soon after lunch, Handscomb managed to stretch to his hundreds, before Imran bowling Cartwright and gave some company to a rapid fire tally by Matthew Wade and Mitchell Starc.
Pakistan batting started on a week footing and they lost two strikes to David Warner, Matt Renshaw, and Handscomb, before the tea break. Australia’s not being their best form for fielding came to Pakistan’s rescue for a revival of the game to some level. Bowlers from home team including Cartwright too did not come up with their best on the field.
There is still no good news for Pakistan yet, but steadily their side kept improving the batting outcome as the game progressed and the visitors hope to see some more assertive batting, taking advantage of Australian team’s underperformance against the Pakistan batsmen. But, the ultimate upshot will swing in favor of a team that puts some thinking strategy in the game tomorrow.
