Australia v Pakistan: first Test, day two – live!

Get in touch


What ho, fine friends. Good morrow. Good marrow. Of your bones and in your gardens both. Here’s hoping. Time to sniff the flowers and biff with power. We’ve had one day of Test cricket in the Australian summer and it was a beauty – momentum shifts, danger, sturdy resistance, late drama, and ultimately closure. Pakistan were bowled out on the stroke of stumps. Fought brilliantly through the morning session via Azhar and Shan Masood, collapsed through the middle, then fought again at the end via Shafiq with help from Rizwan and Yasir. They’ve made 240 which will at least give their quicks something to bowl at. Today it’s Australia’s turn: how will the new-old batting line-up fare? Can’t wait.
