Starting the day after facing a solitary over yesterday, openers David Warner and Usman Khawaja brought Australia to a good start. The left-handed duo shared a 156-run opening stand. Like the last two days, the pitch had nothing to offer for the bowlers and the opening duo feasted on the dead track with flamboyant strokes.

The only opportunity that Pakistan got was when Khawaja edged one off Shaheen Afridi which flew straight to Fawad Alam at Gully. The fielder however couldn’t complete the catch, giving Khawaja an early reprieve.

The duo then scored fifties each and finished the first session at 138/0. Warner was dismissed early after lunch as he looked to cut spinner Sajid only to miss it and the ball crashed his stumps. Khawaja and Labuschagne were then fluent with the bat. Soon Khawaja reached 97 and was looking well set for a century. He however was dismissed by Naushad Ali as he played a lavish reverse sweep that edged off his glove and Imam-ul-Haq and forward short leg completed a simple catch.

Labuschagne and Smith then continued to score well to put Pakistan in a good position. Labuschagne was particularly impressive, playing for the first time in the sub-continent, as he brought his half-century in style. However dark clouds forced the day to end early due to bad light. Australia are looking comfortable at the moment and will look to continue their good performance when they step on the field tomorrow.
