Pakistan vs Australia – Mohammad Rizwan and Salman Agha 94-Run Stand.

In a riveting afternoon session on Day 1 at the SCG, a positive 94-run partnership between Mohammad Rizwan (88) and Salman Agha (36*) showcased Pakistan’s resilience. This impressive stand, unfortunately, came to an end just before Tea, leaving the two teams evenly poised. Starting their partnership at a challenging 96/5, the sixth-wicket duo make a commendable fightback, guiding Pakistan to 190 before Cummins dealt a crucial blow at the brink of the session break. As Tea approached, Pakistan found themselves at 199/6, with Rizwan’s strokeful 88 leading the way.

Pakistan vs AustraliaRizwan’s Early Impact and Masood’s Lifeline

Rizwan wasted no time in making an impact during the afternoon, initiating with a couple of well-timed fours. On the other end, Shan Masood survived an early scare when he edged to Steve Smith at second slip in Mitchell Marsh’s opening over. However, the reprieve came as the bowler had overstepped, giving Masood a lifeline at 32. The same combination of Masood and Smith struck again, dismissing the Pakistan captain in a similar fashion three overs later, with the missed opportunity costing Australia only three runs.

Pakistan vs Australia Rizwan’s Flourish and Australia’s Review Dilemma

Undeterred by the early setbacks, Rizwan guided Pakistan into triple digits with two fours off Cummins. The Australian captain decided to use a second review on a caught-behind appeal against Salman Agha, but the UltraEdge revealed a clear gap. Despite Salman’s cautious start, Rizwan displayed versatility, driving and sweeping Nathan Lyon to the boundary. He achieved his ninth Test fifty with a pull off Josh Hazlewood immediately after the drinks break.

Lyon faced difficulty settling into his second spell as both Salman and Rizwan utilized their footwork effectively, consistently finding the boundaries. Rizwan even showcased his aggressive side by slog-sweeping Lyon for his second six, entering the 70s. The boundaries kept flowing, prompting Cummins to reintroduce Marsh into the attack, and the move paid off instantly. A well-directed short ball induced a miscued pull from Rizwan, who had played the shot exceptionally well throughout his innings of 88, landing the ball into Hazlewood’s hands at the ropes.
