Sajid Khan Sets the Stage

The momentum-shifting burst initiated with Sajid Khan, who dismissed Alex Carey on the brink of tea, putting the Test match back in the balance. This crucial breakthrough interrupted a significant sixth-wicket partnership between Carey and Mitchell Marsh, which had previously steered Australia towards recovery on day three of the third NRMA Insurance Test.

Mini-Collapse After Lunch

The dismissal of Travis Head, trapped lbw for 10 by Aamer Jamal, triggered a mini-collapse, leaving the hosts at a precarious 5-205 shortly after lunch. This followed the fall of Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne just before the interval, as Pakistan’s persistence reaped rewards.

Smith and Labuschagne’s Departure

Steve Smith added 32 to his overnight score but fell victim to Mir Hamza’s delivery, caught by Babar Azam. Meanwhile, Labuschagne’s cautious approach ended with a beautiful off-break from part-time off-spinner Salman Ali Agha, crashing into middle and leg stump. Head’s dismissal added to the woes, completing a mini-collapse of 3-18 for the hosts.

Challenging Conditions for Batsmen

An unusually cautious Head, failing to hit a boundary in his 29-ball stay, succumbed to Jamal’s spin. Despite a review, the third umpire upheld the ‘out’ call, as the ball was projected to hit the leg stump. The challenging conditions, with Pakistan spinners turning the ball and quicks hitting their areas consistently, posed difficulties for the Australian batsmen.

Pink Day at Sydney Cricket Ground

Earlier, on Jane McGrath Day, Labuschagne’s stylish flick through midwicket for four set a positive tone. However, the middle-order struggled against Pakistan’s quicks, surviving a testing period with five straight maidens.

Momentum Shifts with Pakistan’s Double Blow

Labuschagne’s 18th Test fifty and a well-set partnership with Smith were promising signs for Australia. However, Pakistan’s double blow, courtesy of Sajid Khan and Jamal, cracked the match wide open, redefining the balance as the sea of pink at the Sydney Cricket Ground witnessed a gripping day of Test cricket.
