Batting first Australia put an ordinary total of 253 runs on the board in the first innings with Pakistani pacers Aamer and Asif picked up 4 and 3 wickets respectively. However, Pakistan failed to capitalize on the momentum given by their bowlers as they were bundled out only for 148 runs in their first innings. Watson picked up 5 wickets for the Aussies.

Despite the poor showing by their batsmen, Pakistani bowlers made a good come back as the second day finished with Australia standing at 100 for 4 in their second innings. However, Australia bounced back on the third day as opener Katich along with Hilfenhaus, Paine and Johnson guided Australia towards a very good total of 334 runs. Katich scored 83 runs, while Hilfenhaus, Paine and Johnson contributed with 56, 47 and 30 runs respectively.

Fourth Day’s play has already begun and Pakistan has reached at 136 for 1 with Salman Butt and Azhar Ali batting at the moment. Now, it would be interesting to see if Pakistan can win the match by overcoming this mammoth total or Australian bowlers can make another come back in the match.
