Summary

Australia put up a spirited display to draw the first Test against Pakistan. Pakistan would surely take the draw as a loss after seeing the Aussies bat for four and a half sessions to save the Test match. Pakistan were not aggressive enough in favourable conditions. Their wait and watch policy proved fatal as Aussies recovered to draw the match.

 

Usman Khawaja and Aaron Finch nearly scored 60% of total runs for Australia but they cannot be over dependant on the duo. Captain Tim Paine would be worried about their other batsman especially after they lost 10 wickets for 60 runs in the first innings. They have to really play better to grind out a positive result in the series against Pakistan.

 

The second Test match will be played from October 16 at  Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. The match will start from 11:30 AM IST. We have the full squad of both the teams here.
