The Pakistan batsmen collapsed on the third day, Australia tightened the noose; Kangaroo’s lead exceeds 300

In the Perth Test, the Pakistan batting, which provided a strong reply to the Australian bowling attack on the second day, completely disintegrated on the third day. Today (December 16), the Pakistan team was on the safe side in the first two sessions. The Pakistan team scored 271 runs in their first innings. In this way, Australia gained a huge lead of 216 runs on the basis of the first innings itself.

However, the Kangaroo team did not deliver any supplies to Pakistan here. Australia began batting again and by the end of the day’s play had scored 84 more runs after losing two wickets. With this, Australia’s overall lead is now 300 runs.

On the third day of the match, Pakistan began playing above their previous score (132/2). Only one run was added to the scoreboard as Khurram Shahzad (7) returned to the pavilion. From here, yesterday’s batsman Imam Ul Haq and Babar Azam led the innings forward. There was a 48-run partnership between the two for the fourth wicket. Babar (21) fell victim to Mitchell Marsh at the age of 181. Imam ul Haq (62) also retired after 11 runs. Nathan Lyon caught him in his spin.

After the fall of 5 wickets at 192, the Pakistan team’s confidence was shaken and wickets started falling at regular intervals. Sarfaraz Ahmed (3), Saud Shakeel (28), Faim Ashraf (9), Aamer Jamal (10) and Shaheen Afridi (4) made a favorable return to the pavilion. Here Salman Aga took care of an end. He remained unbeaten after scoring 28 runs off 76 balls. For Australia, Nathan Lyon took three wickets while Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins took two wickets each. Other bowlers got one wicket each.

After building a lead of 216 in the first innings, Australia got off to a poor start in the second innings. When David Warner (0) was out, there wasn’t a single run on the scoreboard. After a while, Marnus Labuschagne (2) also started running. In this way, the Kangaroo team had lost two wickets for a total of 5 runs. From here, Steve Smith (43) supported Usman Khawaja (34) and did not let the wicket fall to the stumps. Both batsmen will now lead the Australian innings on day four.
