The Visitors still trailed by 124 runs in the first innings with Mohammad Rizwan (29) and Aamir Jamal (2) out in the Middle.

Pakistan were at 124-1 at one stage but at the end of the last Session, they lost wickets rapidly and were pushed on the Back foot.

Opener Abdullah Shafiq remained unbeaten on 39 runs but Nathan Lyon dismissed his teammate Imamul Haq after scoring 10 runs. Captain Shan Masood was not out on 15 runs at the break.

Pakistan is looking to bounce back in the three-match series after losing the first Test.

Australia Bowled out for 318 runs:

Australia lost seven wickets for 131 on the second morning and were all out for 318 in their first innings against Pakistan.

Marnus Libeschen scored his fourth Test fifty of the year but was soon dismissed for 63 by Amir Jamal (3-64).

But Pakistan will be unhappy with the number of extras, a total of 52 as it was the second largest contributor to Australia’s total.

Shaheen Afridi, Mir Hamza, and Hasan Ali took two wickets each.

First Day:

Yesterday Pakistan Captain Shan Masood won the toss and decided to bowl in the second Test.

Australia reached 187-3 at stumps on day one as the Rain-hit Boxing Day Test saw only 66 overs bowled.

The hosts are looking to seal the three-Test series after thrashing the Visitors by 360 runs in Perth and go into the game with an unchanged squad.

Pakistan preferred Mohammad Rizwan to keep the Wicket ahead of Sarfraz Ahmed while fast bowlers Mir Hamza and Hasan Ali played after being overlooked in the first Test.

He has replaced Injured pacers Khurram Shahzad and Faheem Ashraf, who were axed.

This means an all-pace Attack led by veteran Shaheen Shah Afridi and impressive newcomer Amir Jamal with no room for a specialist spinner.
