    The roller is slowly leaving the field now. Australia won’t mind the delay. The two umpires get together and they have a worried look on their faces. Perhaps, they are advising Babar Azam to use spinners as the light is not conducive to face fast bowling. Babar consults his deputy, Rizwan, and they have agreed. Shaheen goes off his bowling mark and it’s going to be Sajid Khan to start proceedings. More time wasting as the close-in fielders are wearing their protective gears.

    The men concerned are back on the field. David Warner and Usman Khawaja are the Aussie openers. Their main aim will be to see off the day’s play carefully. That said, they can’t get over-defensive against the Pakistan bowlers. Shaheen Afridi is getting ready to bowl the first over. There is a buzz around the stadium. The heavy roller is still doing its job, so there is a small delay. Warner is seen having a word with Shaheen.

    … SECOND INNINGS …

  5. !

    Right then, the crowd is getting excited about the prospect of watching the Pakistan bowlers bowl this evening, that too under lights. They are warming up. Around 56 minutes left in the day’s play but considering the fading light, we will be lucky if the play lasts the distance. Anyway, stay tuned as the Australian openers will be out soon with their reply.

  6. !

    Here comes the declaration! Babar Azam whistles and calls his boys back. Pakistan have declared their first innings on 476/4! A strong batting show by the home team after winning the toss. The first three wickets were involved in valuable stands and that propelled them to a sizable total. Imam-ul-Haq and Azhar Ali were the chief architects and the others around them also chipped in with useful runs. Nothing much to write home about Australia’s bowling. They toiled hard on a docile surface but without much success. One thing they did do well was to keep the scoring rate under check.

    Drinks break. 70 runs in the first segment of play after Tea and there is definitely more intent shown by the Pakistan batters. They lost both Babar Azam and Azhar Ali in the process but have a perfect pair in the middle to do quick scoring. 20 overs left in the day’s play, light permitting. It’s been overcast for quite some time and we are playing under lights. That might also play a role in Pakistan’s declaration as the light is not supposed to improve much. Mitchell Starc to bowl after the break…

    Beaten! Excellent drift on this delivery. It lands close to off, spins away a shade as Iftikhar Ahmed prods forward in defense and misses.
