    Excellent session for Australia that has fetched them three wickets and put them on the cusp of a 2-0 series win! Nathan Lyon has bounced back from the disappointment of the first innings and was once again instrumental in cutting short Pakistan’s stubborn fight by claiming a fifer. 2 wickets left to pick and the only question remains is whether Rizwan rallies around with the remaining batsmen and force Australia to bat again! We will find that out soon. Do join us in a short while for what could be the final session of this Test series.

    We thought that the session will be extended but Tim Paine has declined the extra 30 minutes and the Aussies are walking back for Dinner. Star of the session and this innings so far, Nathan Lyon is down for a quick chat before he heads for his break. Lyon says that it was a very good session and hopes they are clinical enough to wrap it up. On being unlucky not to get any wickets on Day 3 inspite of bowling so well, Lyon admits that is how it is. Further adds there are days you bowl badly and yet end up getting wickets.
