2nd Test, Australia tour of United Arab Emirates 2018, Aus v Pak highlights today – Second test day four from Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi (U.A.E) Friday 19th October 2018. Pakistan scored 282 & 400/9d and Australia 145 & 47/1* till stumps day three. In the day three play Azhar Ali scored 64 runs off 141 balls when his wicket dismissed then it happened like this (52.3 Run out! Extraordinary! He edged past gully on the drive, and it ran to the rope and the Pakistan batsmen thought it had gone for four. It stopped just short of the rope. Starc chased it down and threw it back and Azhar and Asad were mid-pitch just having a chat. Paine whipped the bails off and Azhar has to go! They clearly thought it had gone for four and stopped running! They didn’t run at all. Azhar thought it was four off the bat 160/4).
Haris Sohail scored 17 runs, Asad Shafiq contributed 44 runs, Babar Azam was one score behind from his test career first milestone and then it happened (109.5 LBW! Oh no! He’s been given out hit on the knee roll. He reviews. This was a good length tailing back into middle, he played from the crease and missed. It hit him just above the knee roll. No inside edge. Ball tracking says hitting leg stump! Babar out for 99! What a shame for him. He batted beautifully and deserved a century. 368/6). The captain of the team Sarfraz Ahmed again beautifully by scoring 81 runs off 123 balls. Bilal Asif scored 15 runs and Yasir Shah 4. Australia faced 12 overs in their second innings and scored 47 runs with one wicket down. Now Australia need 491 runs with 9 wickets remaining to win this match.
