AUS vs PAK: After a lower-order collapse, Australia scored 391 points. Australia squander a very good position against Pakistan in the series decider in Lahore. Being bowl out for 391 in their first innings. Despite having set themselves up for a massive first innings total after a productive morning session. Australia surrendered the lead as Shaheen Afridi and Naseem Shah ripped the lower order apart.

Cameron Green and Alex Carey, who keep Pakistan’s bowlers at bay with a century stand, got the post-lunch session off to a flying start. Green hit a boundary in each of the first two overs, and Carey followed suit off Hasan Ali. Just as it appeared that Australia would cruise through another session of this Test match. Disaster struck when Nauman Ali trapped Carey leg-before-wicket to end a 135-run partnership.

AUS vs PAK: Pakistan’s seamers made excellent use of reverse swing

Unfortunately for Australia, a similar story to Day 1 unfold, with the advantage being lost due to regular wickets. Green, who is the key wicket at the time, hit a couple of boundaries off Hasan Ali, but Naseem’s top-notch delivery breach his defense to dismiss him for 79. Pakistan’s seamers made excellent use of the available reverse swing to run through the tail.

Mitchell Starc mistime one of his attempts to get a third boundary of the over as he find the fielder at mid off after fetching a couple of boundaries off Shaheen. As Australia lost their last five wickets for just 50 runs, Naseem and Shaheen hit the stumps again to finish the innings quickly. Even though 391 runs isn’t a bad first innings total, they have certainly squandered an opportunity to fully capitalize on the toss they won on opening day.

Brief scores: Australia 391 (Usman Khawaja 91, Cameron Green 79; Naseem Shah 4/58, Shaheen Afridi 4/79) vs Pakistan.
