The host team’s performance was also seen in the last match of the 3-match Test series being played between Australia and Pakistan, in which they won the match by 8 wickets. With the start of play on the fourth day of the match, Pakistan team’s second innings was reduced to a score of only 115 runs. After this, the Australian team got a target of 130 runs to win and they achieved it easily at the loss of just 2 wickets. David Warner, playing his last Test match for Australia in this innings, played an unbeaten inning of 57 runs while Marnus Labuschagne played an unbeaten inning of 62 runs. This tour proved to be very bad for the Pakistan team in which they had to face one-sided defeat in all three matches.

Pakistani batsmen disappointed with their performance in this series

In this Test series, there was a very disappointing performance from the batsmen of Pakistan team, in which wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan, who played in the last 2 matches for the team, was the highest run scorer. Rizwan managed to score 193 runs in 4 innings of this series. Whereas for Australia, the maximum runs in this series were seen from the bat of Mitchell Marsh, who scored 344 runs in 5 innings at an average of 86, which also included 4 half-centuries.

Aamer Jamal’s performance impressed everyone

The biggest discovery of this series for the Pakistan team was in the form of fast bowler Aamer Jamal, who took a total of 18 wickets in this 3-match Test series. During this period, Jamal also took 5 or more wickets in an innings twice. Jamal performed brilliantly with the bat in the Sydney Test and played an important role in taking the Pakistan team out of a serious situation in the first innings and taking them to a score beyond 300. The most wickets in this Test series were taken by Australian captain Pat Cummins, who took 19 wickets at an average of 12, in which he also took 5 wicket hauls in an innings thrice.
