Pakistan scored 271 runs in their opening innings to counter Australia’s impressive total. A hint of consistency in the top order was demonstrated by Abdullah Shafique’s 42 and Imam-ul-Haq’s 62 runs.

Australia’s attack was curbed by Khurram Shahzad of Pakistan, who claimed three wickets. In the fourth innings, Pakistan found it difficult to match Australia’s bowling power. They gave in to the strain and were bowled out for only 89 runs. Australia won by a huge 360 runs, with Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc causing havoc and taking three vital wickets apiece.
