Australia Set a target of 506 to Pakistan in the ongoing second Test, Pakistan was in a precarious position at 21/2 but Pakistan skipper Babar Azam rose to the challenge to score a ton against all odds that kept his side in the game. India spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took note of Babar Azam’s performance and hailed the stylish right-hander for his fighting hundred. As a result of this performance, Ashwin now thinks that the match would have an interesting Day 5 with all three results possible. “Babar Azam, going to be an exciting finish tomorrow. #PAKvAUS,” tweeted Ashwin.
At stumps on Day 4, Pakistan’s score read 192/2 with the hosts needing 314 more runs to win the Test and go 1-0 up in the series. Babar along with opener Abdullah Shafique stitched together an unbeaten stand of 171 runs for the third wicket. Babar and Shafique were batting on 102 and 71 respectively.
