Every player chipped in and made sure to contribute with bat and ball. Australia would be hoping to continue with the same momentum. On the other hand, the Babar Azam-led would be itching to perform well with the bat and ball. Barring opener Imam-ul-Haq the rest of the batters failed to convert starts into something substantial.

The hosts bowling, which is disciplined most often than not top floundered. Azam would expect the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hassan Ali, and Harris Rauf to bowl better lines and lengths.
