Pak vs Aus, 1st Test, Day 3: David Warner falls after lunch break

Australia have a mountain to climb on day three of the first Test in Rawalpindi after Pakistan declared its first innings at 4/476.

While Pakistan have three spinners at their disposal, the Aussies start the day at 0/5 after bad light cut play short on day two.

It’s been a brutal slog for the bowlers, but Australia’s resilience against spinners on the subcontinent is sure to be tested.

Fifty for Labuschagne

Australian No 3 Marnus Labuschagne has passed fifty in Rawalpindi, reaching the milestone in 91 deliveries.

He and Steve Smith combined for a fifty-run stands soon after.

Warner falls after lunch break

Pakistan has finally unearthed its first breakthrough of the Rawalpindi Test, with off-spinner Sajid Khan removing Australian opener David Warner for 68.

The left-hander badly misjudged the length of Khan delivery that crashed halfway up middle stump, with Warner stranded trying to play a cut shot on the backfoot.

Although he didn’t reach triple figures, his Test record against Pakistan remains impeccable. His most recent Test scores against the Asian nation are 68, 335*, 154, 55, 113, 144.

As pointed out by statistician Swamp, only Sir Donald Bradman boasts a more prolific six-innings streak against a single opposition.
