Pakistan chases 490 runs in 2nd innings at the Gabba

However, Pakistan is currently travelling Australia to play a Test and ODI series. And their tournament has started with long format match in last 15th December, 2016. THe Gabba, Brisbane is hosted their first Day/Night Test where Australia came to bat first. They scored 429 runs in their first innings but Pakistan fallen into batting disaster in their first innings. They lost eight wickets by making just 67 runs and they were about to fall in follow – on. But, at last they able to pass the follow – on target and so, Aussie team came to bat for the second innings. In their second innings, they declared their innings by making 202 runs by losing five wickets and so, 490 runs target is set by Aussie team.

The Green Shirts has come to bat again at the middle of the 3rd day which was their second innings. They have lost their two wickets by making 54 runs in that day. Now, they have started to play again in the fourth day of the Test and according to the last news, they have scored 135 runs by losing no more wickets. If Australia wants to win the match, they will have to take all wickets of the Shaheens. On the other hand, Pakistan teams needs to score 490 runs to win the match.

If we consider their last Test match statistics, Aussie team visited United Arab Emirates instead of Pakistan where the Shaheens are using UAE as their home venue because they can not use their home ground due to political problem since 2009 when a terrorist attack was occurred to Sri Lankan team. However, in their last Test series, Pakistan beat Aussie by 2 – 0.

But, in the Gabba, Brisbane, no can can defeat Australia since long in long format match. So, luck on their side probably. If they will fail to all out Pakistan, they the match would draw or Pakistan win.
