Australia has tightened its grip on the day-night Test match.

Thanks to David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne’s batting, and Mitchell Starc’s impressive bowling, Australia has gained an advantage in their day/night Test against Pakistan in Adelaide. After declaring their first innings on 589/3, Australia managed to grab a 287-run lead by bowling out Pakistan for 302.

At the end of the second day, Pakistan’s innings were in shambles - they were losing by 6 wickets for 69 runs. However, with Babar Azam’s 97 runs and Yasir Shah’s first-ever Test century and total of 113 runs, Pakistan was able to reach an ‘okay’ run. Nonetheless, it wasn’t enough to disuade Australia’s attack. Mitchell Starc, who had picked four wickets on day two, managed 2 more to make it 6/66, while Pat Cummins picked 3/83.

Hoping to get them out of trouble, Pakistan leaned on Imam-Ul-Haq who, unfortunately, fell for a duck. Azhar Ali didn’t also perform well and scored 39 and 5 in the first Test, while he got out for just 9 in the first innings. He was, however, dismissed by Mitchell Starc.

The dismissal stood out not because of the bowling but because of the catch. The ball was travelling to Steve Smith’s right at a good speed when he dived and caught it with both hands. The catch was completed safely and Pakistan stared at the barrel at 11/2 in the second innings.

Tests are the longest format of matches in cricket, lasting nearly four days. To know more about the different cricket formats, visit Betwala’s page.
