Couldn't have been a better script for Australia after Finch opted to bowl. He was banking on the morning conditions giving some life into the pitch and he was proven right as Stanlake ripped into the Pakistan top order by snaring four scalps in an unchanged spell of hostile fast
bowling. That virtually deflated Pakistan right there and although the likes of Faheem and Shadab hung about, all they managed to do it to avoid embarrassment, as this total is well below par. Australia were flawless barring a dropped catch and a fielding blip. The track is sluggish with the new ball offering help to the seamers but Pakistan don't have enough on the board. Will take a miracle for them to make a match of this. Back shortly for the chase.
