The troubles for Pakistan did not subside even in the second session and they lost their 7th wicket at the score of 230 in the form of Saud Shakeel who returned to the pavilion after scoring 28 runs. After this, Agha Salman played an important role in taking the team score to 271 in the first innings by playing an inning of 28 runs in the lower order. In the first innings for Australia, Nathan Lyon was brilliant with the ball, taking 3 wickets, apart from this, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins took 2-2 wickets while Mitchell Marsh, Josh Hazlewood and Travis Head took 1-1 wicket.

Warner and Labuschagne returned to the pavilion early, Khawaja and Smith took over the innings.

The start of the second innings in this match was not good for the Australian team, in which David Warner, who had scored a century in the first innings, returned to the pavilion without opening the account, while Maransh Labuschagne also became the victim of Khurram Shahzad after scoring 2 runs. However, after this, Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith together did not allow the team to suffer any further setback till the end of the day’s play. While Australia has scored 84 runs at the loss of 2 wickets in their second innings, their lead has also reached 300. In such a situation, it is now looking very difficult for Pakistan to make a comeback in this match.
