SYDNEY – Just when things were looking to slip away from Pakistan’s hands, Hasan Ali strikes twice in an over to remove both set batsmen out to bring Pakistan back in the game.
Australia had hit the accelerator; they were 208 for one in 35 over, Hasan Ali came in t produce a gem of an over to remove both well-set batsmen Warner (130) and Smith (49) to put Pakistan back on the track.
Earlier, Warner returned to form just when it needed the most. His brisk hundred after Khwaja’s wicket had put Pakistan in all sorts of pressure. Their strike bowlers had gone for runs; they had a lot of sloppy fielding display on the ground. Hasan’s double gave them a hope.
So far Pakistan have dropped 3 catches and let go at least 25 runs from their misfields.
