Watch Pak v Aus 2nd test day 3 full HD highlights today from Melbourne Cricket Ground (Australia) Wednesday 28th December 2016. Pakistan now sitting on the driving seat but who knows what will happen next, if Pakistan will reach above 350 runs in their first innings then it will become difficult for Australia but rain problems still predicted for today. Pakistan now is at 310 with six wickets down in 101.2 overs. Yesterday Pakistan faced 50.1 overs and scored 168 runs, Azhar Ali still not out with 139 runs.
Asad Shafiq completed his fifty and out, he was playing so good but then it was 87.6 good ball and a good catch. Shafiq has been leaving alone outside off, and Bird has been getting closer and closer to off. This one is a perfect line. Around the fourth stump. You have to play it on-line although you could argue this could be left alone on length as this is pitched just that tiny bit short of a length. Shafiq plays at it, though, and the seam movement takes a thick outside edge for Smith to push it at second slip 240/5.
Sarfraz Ahmed was in so hurry as usual and gone with scoring ten runs now Mohammad Amir is at 28 and still not out. JM Bird took three wickets, JR Hazlewood took two and NM Lyon took one till stumps day 2.
