Australia and Pakistan are currently facing off against each other at the Karachi National Stadium in the second match of their ongoing 3-match test series. The first match between the two sides at the Rawalpindi stadium ended in a draw and the Aussies have started off on a high in the second test, thanks to a brilliant performance by their batters.
Australia won the toss and opted to bat first. Thanks to a brilliant performance by Australian opener Usman Khawaja who scored 160 off 369 and middle-order batsman Alex Carey who scored 93 off 159, the visitors scored massive first innings score of 556/9 (declared).
In response, Pakistan failed to do anything special in their first innings and they were all down for just 148 runs. Surprisingly, Australia declared after scoring just 97/2 in their second innings as they wanted to capitalize on their giant lead.
However, as it now seems like, Pakistan can go for a draw or a win as well. The Paks have now scored 192 runs for 2 wickets and they need 314 runs in 90 overs. Pakistan has 1 day left to achieve the target while Australia needs 8 wickets to win the match and take a lead in the series.
However, the best moment of Day 4 of the second test was arguably the delivery by ace pacer Shaheen Afridi that completely fooled Australian batter Marnus Labuschagne and picked up his wicket.
Labuschagne was batting 44 runs at that time when an in-swinging delivery by Shaheen Afridi totally fooled the batter. The delivery was so great that it completely broke the wicket from its base and it was a treat to eyes.
