Watch Aus v Pak cricket highlights today, 1st test day 3 full HD from Brisbane Cricket Ground, Woolloongabba, Brisbane (Australia) Sunday 18th December 2016. Pakistan’s recent position is not good because the target is too far away from now and Australia is at the driving seat so far.
Pakistan scored 142 runs in their first innings. Australia scored 202 runs in their second innings and declared with five wickets down. Pakistan required another 420 runs with 8 wickets remaining which is so difficult. If they reach their target then it will be the world’s highest successful most runs chase of test cricket matches fourth innings victory.
On May 9-13, 2003 West indies chased the highest total of test cricket history target was 417 runs in fourth innings, and they chased it with three wickets remaining against Australia. Pakistan chased its highest total on 3 Jul 2015 against Sri Lanka. The target was 377. Younis Khan scored 171 runs in that match and goes not out and it was the sixth successful highest run chase of cricket history.
Sarfraz Ahmed keeper and great batsmen from Pakistan cricket team scored most runs from all others in Pakistan’s first innings. He scored 59 runs not out yesterday, Mohammad Amir tried his best and out with scoring 21 runs. When his wicket down then it was 50.4 big appeal. No says the umpire. Steven Smith reviews. Bird has no idea. But there is a huge blotch on the inside edge. The bird was getting some movement in the over, this one nips back in from a good length. Amir is cut in half, and the ball snicks the inside edge. Just a faint edge, but very discernible. Amir cannot believe the decision. Hit the bat and the elbow on its way to the keeper, that’s what Amir would have felt. Definitely out. RTS confirms the edge with a spike when the ball passes bat. Good review from Australia 121/9.
MA Starc, JR Hazlewood and JM Bird all these three Australian bowlers took equal wickets. Three wickets had been taken by each bowler. UT Khawaja scored 74 runs yesterday. SPD Smith* 63 and PSP Handscomb 35 not out. Mohammad Amir, Yasir Shah, and Wahab Riaz these three bowlers took three wickets. Rahat Ali took two.
