Pakistan, on the other hand, set a great trap by carefully placing fielders around short extra cover. Smith tried to hit Hasan Ali’s delivery high into the air, but Babar Azam stopped him. Smith left the game with 38 runs off 86 balls. A short time later, Labuschagne was bowled for 60 runs by off-spinner Agha Salman. Outside the rough, the ball turned sharply and went through the bat-pad gap to hit him on the middle stump. Australia’s progress was stopped by this quick double-wicket breakthrough.
The team was stunned because they looked like they were about to chip away at Pakistan’s first-innings total of 313. Only 83 runs were scored in 33 overs in the morning session, which means that only 2.49 runs were scored per over. Pakistan finally got what they deserved for their disciplined bowling and determined defense, even though they had already lost the three-match series to Australia after winning the previous Test in Melbourne.
