Watch Pak v Aus 2nd test day 2 full HD highlights today from Melbourne Cricket Ground (Australia) Tuesday 27th December 2016. Pakistan team faced 50.5 overs yesterday and batted well then their past performance. Pakistan scored 142 runs with the loss off four wickets till the end of the day 1. After 50.5 overs rain interrupted the play for the remaining day.
Sami Aslam opener of the Pakistan team scored nine runs off forty-one deliveries and out when his wicket dismissed then it was 11.3 oh man, who has written his script? They said they want to go “nice Garry” after the third ball he bowls. And Lyon has produced a goodie with the third ball he bowls. Quick sharp off-break, perhaps there is bite with early moisture. On a length, on-off. Sami caught in the crease and is not to its pitch. So he pushes at it in panic. The ball turns and bounces to take the shoulder of his bat. Glover actually. Caught at slip. Nice, Garry 18/1.
Babar Azam new young Pakistani batsmen tried good but his wicket fallen when he was at 23, Younis Khan faced 59 balls and scored 21 runs, Misbah-ul-Haq captain of the team goes with scoring eleven runs and it was the last wicket which had been down for Australians and then it was 46.5 superb catch. Soft signal is out for the short leg catch. That has been an excellent field position for Misbah, for starters.
This is the second bat-pad from Misbah in this brief stay. This is an excellent and clean catch from Maddinson. This shortish ball seams back in to hit the inside edge and travel behind square, but it hits the pad flush and changes direction dramatically. Maddinson has to change direction and the ball is dropping in front of him and he gets the fingers under it 125/4.
After some bad performances Azhar Ali got his form so far it looks like that because he scored 66 runs off 138 balls and still not out another side Asad Shafiq is standing with him, he scored four runs off 12 balls. JM Bird bowled 15.5 overs and took two wickets, JR Hazlewood and NM Lyon these two took two wickets till the end of the first day.
