Australia had another bad day at the office, as they collapsed after scoring just 261 runs. Only Mitchell Marsh and Michael Clarke, were able to display solid resistance against the Pakistani bowlers who flourished on a wicket that was considered superb for batting until yesterday.

Glenn Maxwell played fearlessly and hit some crackalicious shots before being dismissed. Captain Clarke, put up a solid resistance, and was forming a efficient partnership with Mitchell Marsh, when Imran Khan bowled an absolute peach of a delivery to rattle his middle stump. Marsh played some exquisite shots, and gave a good display of his talent and potential as a batsman. He narrowly missed his century, as he was dismissed on 87 .

Brief scores:

Pakistan 570 for 6 (Younis Khan 213, Azhar Ali 109; Mitchell Starc 2 for 86) & 61 for 2 (Azhar Ali 21*, Ahmed Shehzad 14*; Mitchell Johnson 2 for 29) lead Australia 261 (Mitchell Marsh 87, Michael Clarke 47; Imran Khan 3 for 60) by 370 runs.
