Twitterati troll Pakistan after dramatic loss to Australia in Melbourne Test – Who said what!

New Delhi: Just when people think of an obvious result for a Pakistan game, they always produce surprise and play some different type of cricket to show how to make a dull, no result game interesting. They have done this time and again and proved why the saying 'you never know with the Pakistanis' is true.

In the process of posting 443-9 on board in a rain hit match, where most of the day's play had been wasted by rain, Pakistan witnessed some brilliant batting performance by opener Azhar Ali who scored his second double hundred of the year along with some handy runs from the tail-enders. The total had put the visitors in commanding position as the Aussies witness a tricky task in front of them.

In reply, Australia came strong and with the help of brilliant batting by David Warner(144), captain Steve Smith (165) and Mitchell Starc (86), they declare their innings just before lunch on Day 5 after putting 624 for 8 on board, earning a 181 runs lead.

Captain Smith took a bold decision and decided that he doesn't want this match to be a no result game and let Pakistan play with two-third of the day's play left to snatch a win.

The decision yielded the result expected as Aussies bundled out Pakistan for 163 runs in just 53.2 overs. With this they not only win the match but also clinch this 3-match series 2-0.
