Australia declared their innings after Labuschagne fell on 44 against Shaheen Afridi in the first session of the fourth day. Khwaja remained unbeaten on 44* to continue his dream run this year’s tests.

Australia declared on 97-2 in 22.3 overs in their second innings to post a colossal target of 506 runs for the exhausted Pakistani batting line-up.

However, Babar Azam (102*) arrived on the crease with utmost positivity and started counterattacking the Kangaroos. His stroke play made it visible that he is gunning for the win against Australia in 2nd test. Azam’s approach made it clear that the lethal Australian bowling attack did not rattle him.

He combined with Shafique (71) to form an unbeaten 171 runs partnership for the third wicket. The duo played their shots and infused newfound energy into the Pakistani camp. They have ignited hopes for a Pakistan win on the 4th day out of nowhere.

Can Babar Azam and Abdullah Shafique pull off a VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid reminiscing heroics at National Stadium in Karachi?
