CRICDOT DESK : The dead wicket did not help the bowlers at all. Such a wicket means the paradise of batsmen. Naturally everyone collects the basket run. Neither of the two teams had to return empty-handed.

In between, Numan Ali has been praised for taking 8 wickets on a familiar pitch. However, in fact, the batsmen turned the stick for five days of the match. The run festival match between Pakistan and Australia has therefore been drawn as expected. Imam-ul-Haq scored a century for Pakistan in both the innings. Besides, Azhar Ali scored a century in the first innings and Abdullah in the second innings. Usman Khawaja, Labushan and Steve Smith missed the guaranteed century for Australia.
