Team Pakistan has just started to play their second Test according to the schedule of the tour in Australia earlier today at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne but in their first day of this second test, they have faced interruption by rain. Though, they have won the toss and started to bat but this time also they have fallen into batting disaster and lost their four wickets already and made only 142 runs so far. They lost their one opener Sami Aslam in just 18 runs and later Azhar Ali tried to make a partnership which added fifty runs to the scoreboard. Babar got out by making just 23 runs personally. Younis Khan and the skipper of the Shaheens Misbah also failed to stand in front of Aussie bowlers. It seems that Pakistan is saved by the rain. However, Pakistan lost their inaugural Test match against Australia in this tour due to batting accident in their first innings. Though, they played well in their second innings but they could not led them to victory. Besides, they will play total three test matches this time against Aussie and among them, they lost already one. So, if this time they will fail to win or draw, then they will lose the series as well. Due to the reason, team Pakistan is very careful this time.

Almost a half day of the inaugural day of the second test, rain holds the match and in another half, they played. According to the last news, the first day was finished by playing 50.5 overs and Pakistan scored 142 runs by losing five wickets.

Two Pakistani batsmen named Azhar and Asad Shafiq are still in the crease where Azhar is the opening batsman and scored already 66 runs. He does not want to make any mistake and also knows that Pakistan is mostly depends on him. Asad played the last Test very well and also another dependable player. If this two will fail to stand strong, then perhaps Pakistani innings will go down again.

However, Pakistan will play their last Test against Australia in next 3rd January, 2017 at Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney. But first, they should win this match to keep them on the race.
