Day 3: Pakistan Dominates, Australia Loses Batting Order

In a gripping display at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Pakistan’s bowling arsenal unleashed havoc on Australia during the second Test match. The clash saw Shaheen Afridi and debutant Mir Hamza leading an aggressive charge, swiftly securing four key wickets after Australia had managed to dismiss the Men in Green for 264 in a crucial encounter.

Pakistan’s retaliation was swift and powerful, as they dismantled the Australian top order, sending Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner, and Travis Head back to the pavilion. Shan Masood’s resilient squad valiantly reduced the host’s lead to a mere 54 runs.

The early dismissals of Khawaja and Labuschagne, scoring a duck and a mere 5 runs respectively, positioned Pakistan at 124-1, fervently pursuing Australia’s first-innings total of 318.
