Pak vs Aus: Watch Babar Azam bowling during first Test
RAWALPINDI: Babar Azam, Pakistan’s all-round captain and a world-class hitter, bowled on the fourth day of the first Test between Australia and Pakistan at the Pindi Cricket Stadium.
As Australia drew near to matching Pakistan’s first innings score of 476-4, declared as the run-fest looked to be heading for a dreary draw, the skipper bowled the final over on the penultimate day.
In the 137th over, Babar gave up five runs.
- 136.1 — Babar Azam to Mitchell Starc, 1 run
- 136.2 — Babar Azam to Pat Cummins, FOUR!
- 136.3 — Babar Azam to Pat Cummins, no run
- 136.4 — Babar Azam to Pat Cummins, no run
- 136.5 — Babar Azam to Pat Cummins, no run
- 136.6 — Babar Azam to Pat Cummins, no run
Meanwhile, overnight rain wiped out the whole morning session on day four, virtually putting an end to any chance of victory for either side in Australia’s first Test in Pakistan in 24 years.
After four days of bat-ball dominance on a level track at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, the touring team concluded the last day on 449-7, 27 runs behind.
In a good batting effort by the visitors, Marnus Labuschagne scored 90 runs and Steve Smith added 78.
Mitchell Starc was on 12 when the game was called off due to inclement weather, with skipper Pat Cummins on four at the other end.
