Pakistan has started their first Test against Australia in 15th December, 2016 which is hosted at the Gabba, Brisbane. Australia came to bat first by winning the toss and made a challenging score of 429 runs by losing all wickets. The skipper of Aussie team Steve Smith made a century in their first innings and their another player Peter Handscomb also made his first Test century their. As a result, they added a large score successfully to the scoreboard. But, team Pakistan has failed to judge their name completely. AT the end of the second day, Pakistan scored only 97 runs by losing their eight precious wickets. So, they have fallen into pressure of follow – on. They needed to collect minimum 133 runs totally to avoid follow – on. Sarfraz Ahmed and Mohammad Amir were in the stage and started to bat in 3rd day of Brisbane Test. However, finally, they have finished their innings by making 142 runs where Sarfraz Ahmed remained not out with his highest 59 runs for the team.

However, pakistan has started their first innings with slow batting and lost their first wicket Azhar Ali at the fifth over when the team made only six runs. In the 2nd wicket partnership, Babar Azam added almost forty more runs. Younis Khan also failed to judge his name and made a zero. Before they reached fifty, the Green Shirts lost their four important wickets along with their captain Misbah ul Haq. Josh Hazlewood got two wickets consecutively but failed to make a hat – trick. Sami Aslam was one of the two opener of Pakistan team but scored only 22 runs and gave his wicket after the skipper Misbah to Bird. Basically, Australia had very good fast ball attacks and their home ground has given them advantage of bounce. On the other hand, the Shaheens used to be regarded a best team for bowling attack but in this match, they failed to go to the leading position. Mohammad Amir took highest four wickets and Yasir Shah took two. Starc, Hazlewood and Bird have got three wickets each for Australia.

So now, it would be tough for the team Pakistan to come back to the game and win the match.
