Rain has stayed away so far. Sarfaraz won the toss and elected to bowl on a green track and under grey skies. His bowlers were erratic. David Warner and Aaron Finch raced away and screamed past 100.
Warner scored his century. The other batsman came in, biffed a few and then fell. Pakistan made a comeback in the final phase of the innings as Australia fell away towards the end. Australia began to stumble even before.
Pakistan’s fight back continued. Amir’s brilliant day. Pitched up ball on off, Marsh wants to biff it down town, does not get the right timing and he can only offer a catch to Shoaib Malik who is stationed at long on. Australia are losing momentum here as they aim for quick runs.
It has been the trend today, batsmen looking to take down the bowlers, they want to clatter them over mid-wicket, but are caught. Australia lost all wickets.
