Australia started off fantastically with Warner scoring three boundaries in the first over itself. Rogers, on the other hand, perished while trying to survive the day. Fortunately for them, bad light ensured that play was called off early. Australia trail by 548 runs and have a mountain to climb. It is not going to be an easy task as the Pakistani bowlers will go hard at them. Day three promises to be a cracker. Do join us tomorrow for the action. Till then, good bye and take care.
Day 2, Stumps: What a long day it has been! Pakistan have been absolutely sensational. Starting the day on 304/2, they continued from where they had left off. After losing Azhar Ali early, veterans Younis and Misbah put up their 11th 100-plus stand in Tests. Younis went on to complete his 5th double ton, while Misbah scored his 6th hundred. Shafiq and Sarfraz added a few handy runs at the end before Misbah declared on 570.
The umpires seem to be in deep discussion and they have decided to call off the play for the day. They decide that the light is too low to continue. Younis is leading the Pakistan team off the field. Warner and Lyon are applauding him as they go off too. They wanted him to precede them but he urged them to go off first.
5.2 Babar to Lyon, no run, gets forward and defends
5.1 Babar to Lyon, no run, presses on the front foot to this arm-ball and looks to defend, the inside edge takes the ball past FSL
Zulfiqar Babar, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack
Another light reading is being taken. They will continue. The umpires are probably asking Pakistan to bowl spinners from both the ends.
