Lahore: The Pat Cummins-led Australian cricket team, which is touring Pakistan after 24 years, has played in a three-match Test series against that country.
The first two Tests in Rawalpindi and Karachi ended in a draw. The third and final Test between Pakistan and Australia began yesterday at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
Cummins, the captain of the toss-winning Australian team, chose to bat. Starter David Warner was out for 7 runs. At the same time another opener Usman Khawaja played better and scored a fifty.
He was dismissed for 91 as he was expected to hit a century. Labusen, who then pitched, came out without taking any runs. Steve Smith was dismissed for 59 runs.
Australia lost 10 wickets in the first innings and scored 391 runs. Pakistan then started their first innings with 90 runs for the loss of 1 wicket at the end of the second day’s play.
Steve Smith has amassed 7,993 runs in the first 150 innings of the Test arena, scoring 59 runs in the match. Former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara and India’s legend Sachin Tendulkar (7,869) have surpassed the record of 7,913 after the first 150 innings of a Test match.
India’s Virender Sehwag (7,694) and Rahul Dravid (7,680) top the list.
