Pakistan 4 down for 142, 2nd Test vs Australia

Pakistan touring Australia to play Test ODI series. Pakistan have lost first Test against Australia. Pakistan fought really well in their 2nd innings to chase a total of 490. Asad Shafiq made a magnificent 137 and named Man of the Match. The 2nd test started today. Pakistan won the toss and they elected to bat first.

The Test is called boxing day test. Pakistan batting first and they lost some early wickets. Sami Aslam who was dreaming of a big score caught out to Nathan Lyon. Lyon picks Sami Aslam in his first over. In Pakistan tpo order only Azhar Ali is playing good cricket else all top order collapse very early today. Here are the first 4 wicket that Pakistan loss today.

Pakistan lost Sami Aslam first. He was out in the first session. Sami once again consumed too many balls. He played a lot of dot balls. Against the pacers he almost left everything which was outside the line of the stumps. Still he could not make his runs. Now it seems that Sami has a barrier somewhere in his mind. He has to break it. He spends a lot of time on the crease but he looks blocked. He hits the ball well and yet he could not get scores now. He was caught in the slips by Smith of Lyon.

Babar Azam was the second man out for Pakistan. On a contrary to Sami, Babar plays his shots with ease. He looks more relaxed and settled on the pitch but somehow he is not getting big scores. He did get runs which refers to as settling scores but he does not move forward after getting them. He was out on the last ball before the lunch break.

He edged the ball into the slips and was caught of Hazelwood. Younis Khan was the third wicket that went down for Pakistan. Younis was not looking settled at all on the MCG wicket. He was shuffling a lot on the off side and that kept the Australians interested. He got a lot of ball on his pads as well. On one of them he was even adjourned lbw.

But it was the review system that saved him. He took the review and as a result he escaped from the out decision. But not for long as Bird went through his defences and cleaned him up. Misbah the Pakistani captain was the final wicket of the day for Australians. Misbah came out with a plan to hit the ball. He did hit a few good shots but then was caught at short fine leg.
