Younis Khan and Azhar Ali had started the day scoring runs at a slow rate, presumably with the intention of tiring out the Australian players. The strategy was working fine, until Steven Smith got the better of Younis and dismissed him for 46. After his dismissal, Misbah ul Haq came on the crease, and started his innings with a boundary down the ground.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 570 for 6 (Younis Khan 213, Azhar Ali 109; Mitchell Starc 2 for 86) & 293 for 3 (Azhar Ali 100*, Misbah ul-Haq 101*; Mitchell Johnson 2 for 45) lead Australia 261 (Mitchell Marsh 87, Michael Clarke 47; Imran Khan 3 for 60) & 143 for 4 (David Warner 58, Steven Smith 38*; Zulfiqar Babar 3 for 65) by 460 runs.
