Pakistan thrash Australia in the first innings as Australia get dismissed for 261

Australia, on the other hand, were very poor with the bat. They played plenty of loose shots and threw their wickets away. Mitchell Marsh was the standout performer with the bat as he countered spin and reverse swing with ease. Clarke battled for his 47, but apart from that there was no one who showed application. They are on the brink of losing the series and only a miracle can save them. Join us for all the action on Day 4. Until then, take care and Cya!
Umpires get together and check the light. It is dark enough to stop the play for the day and that will be stumps. Pakistan are in the driver’s seat. The bowlers responded well after the batsmen put up a massive first innings total. All the bowlers chipped in and pegged the Australians back at regular intervals, bowling them out for 261. With a lead of 309, Misbah decided to give his bowlers a rest and didn’t enforce the follow-on. Shehzad and Hafeez came out with an attacking mindset, but both did not last long. Younis and Azhar Ali once again saw them through a tricky little period.
