    Day 1 started with Pakistan battling out the first session to remain unscathed with skipper Azhar Ali and Shan Masood adding 75 runs for the first wicket. The second session, not so good for the visitors as the Australians hit back with quick wickets. In the third one, Mohammad Rizwan scored briskly but given out controversially by the third umpire. Asad Shafiq then added useful 84 runs with the help of Yasir Shah before the Aussie seamers bundled the visitors for 240. It is time for Day 2 now. Will the Aussie be able to take a lead with a huge first inning total or will Pakistan be able to spring a surprise with their young and inexperienced pace attack? We will find that out soon.

    … Day 2, Session 1 …

  • 1:12 PM IST

    Now, what to look for on Day 2? Pakistan’s pace attack is a much-talked one with the debutant, the 16-year-old, Naseem Shah, being the talk of the town. They will look to replicate what their counterparts have done with the ball while the hosts would look to score a massive first innings total to take a huge lead. Will the hosts be able to do so or will Pakistan be able to chip in with wickets early on to keep the game in the balance? Join us to find that out at 1000 local (0000 GMT) on 22nd November, 2019. Till then, take care!

    Talking about the hosts’ bowling, it did not start well. The pacers were either too short or too full and that meant that they could not draw the batters into the shots. Going into Lunch, they would’ve been a tad disappointed. However, post the Lunch break, the pacers combined to pick quick wickets to push Pakistan on the back foot. From 75/0, Pakistan were reeling at 94/5. The late fight from Shafiq and Yasir kept the bowlers at bay for a while. Things changed as soon as Starc got the second new cherry in his hand. He along with Cummins combined together to close the Pakistani innings.

    Earlier in the day, Pakistan opted to bat first after winning the toss. The openers, skipper Azhar Ali and Shan Masood negated the entire first session. However, they could not convert their starts into big ones and fell in quick succession. Babar Azam got out playing a needless shot early in his innings, leaving the side in a limbo. Mohammad Rizwan and Asad Shafiq then added 49 runs between them to provide some stability. However, a poor call from the third umpire saw Rizwan depart. Shafiq and then Yasir combined together to add 84 runs between them to take Pakistan’s total over 200. In the process, Shafiq raked up his 24th Test half ton. But eventually the hosts’ pacers had the last laugh as they finished off the things just at the close of the day.

    Hard not to spot this. The Aussie openers are nervous and Warner and Burns are having a small chat. There is a nervous smile on their faces and then a look at the clock. ‘Keep ticking’, they will be saying. 4 minutes more.
