Australia vs Pakistan, 2nd Test Day 2 in Adelaide: Highlights
Day 2: David Warner’s majestic triple ton, along with a fiery spell from Mitchell Starc, who picked up four wickets in the day, has put the hosts Austalia on the precipice of a series sweep. Warner was bating on 335, when Paine called off the innings at 589/3. In reply, Pakistan went down six wickets for 96, at stumps on Day 2, still trailing by 493 runs. The visitors still need 293 runs away from the follow-on, and it will be a hard task for Babar Azam, who is still in the middle to cover the deficit on Day 3.
Australia: David Warner, Joe Burns, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Matthew Wade, Tim Paine(w/c), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, Josh Hazlewood
