After 13 years, Test cricket has been restored at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. Pakistan and Australia are facing each other in a historic match.
Interestingly, not only the guest but also no member of the Pakistan team has played a Test match at Gaddafi Stadium before.
This is the 94th Test of Azhar Ali’s career and he is playing Tests in Lahore for the first time.
It should be noted that Australia had played the last Test in Lahore in 1994 while the first two Tests have been drawn between the two teams in the current series.
It should be noted that in the third and final Test match of the series being played between Pakistan and Australia in Lahore, the batting of the visiting team was under severe pressure in the early overs of Shaheen Shah and he lost 2 wickets in one over.
Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith, after taking 2 wickets for 8 runs, supported the faltering batting and increased the score to 70 runs without any further loss till the lunch break.
