I think Australia missed that trick. To be safe, we had to create another 50. With pitch, batter’s form, and run rate, the puck has a chance to win. #AUSvsPAK

#AUSvsPAK I was surprised when the declaration came, especially as Puck’s batsman was close to the Mammoth Run Mountain Chase on the final day of the second test. The Australian may have handed over the series to a pack on the plate!
