Pakistan and Australia enter the fourth day of battle in the ongoing second Test at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday. Pakistan finished at a score of 61 for two at the end of the third day, with Azhar Ali and Younis Khan batting on 21 and 16 respectively. Pakistan tightened their grip on the second Test and the series after the third day’s play, stretching their overall lead to 370 at stumps here today. Catch live scorecard of the match.

Pakistan were 61-2 at the close in their second innings with Azhar Ali unbeaten on 21 and Younis Khan on 16 after another batting collapse saw Australia almost squander any chance of levelling the series. Australia were dismissed for 261 in their first innings, 309 behind Pakistan’s first innings total of 570-6 declared, but Misbah-ul Haq did not enforce the follow-on and chose to bat again so as to set a big target on the fourth day.

That put Pakistan in a strong position to win their first series against Australia in 20 years.
