After the game in Rawalpindi ended in a high-scoring draw, Pakistan and Australia are fighting it out in the second Test at National Stadium, Karachi to get a lead in the three-match series. The second Test started on March 12 with Australia batting first. Pakistan-born Usman Khawaja dominated the proceedings with an unbeaten on Day 1. Khawaja's knock was followed by a 93 from Alex Carey as Pakistan toiled hard on Day 2 too. On the so-called moving day, Australia declared their innings at 556/9 and dismissed Pakistan for 148. At the close of play on Day 3, the visitors have taken a lead of 489 runs. But Day 4 clearly belonged to Pakistan.
On Day 4, Australia didn't take long to declare their second innings, with Pat Cummins calling Usman Khawaja back soon after the fall of Marnus Labuschagne's wicket in the 23rd over (97/2d) for 44 off 49. Khawaja was unbeaten on 44 off 70.
Target for Pakistan - 506 runs.
Then Abdullah Shafique (71) and Babar Azam (102) dropped anchors to keep Pakistan's hopes alive. At the close of play on Day 4, Pakistan reached 192/2 in 82 overs.
