Pakistan’s batter Azhar Ali scored 185 runs on the second day of the test match against Australia that happened on Saturday, in Rawalpindi.

Thus, on the second day, Pakistan declared its innings with 476 runs on the second day of the test. Australia made 5 runs and the match was called off due to poor lighting. Let’s see how Pakistan performs on the third day of the test series against Australia. The match was played in Rawalpindi. Also, the match started on 4th March 2022 and it will end on 8th March 2022.
Here we have noted down the official statements of Azhar Ali and his thoughts about playing a test match against Australia.
“I enjoy scoring runs against Australia, who are definitely one of the top teams in the world,” said Azhar, whose hundred was his fourth against the visitors over the years.
“I wanted to score a double hundred, but they did not allow quick runs. When I took risks against spinners, I got out,” he said,
“They test your ability and challenge you with some tight bowling, so it’s always enjoyable to come good against that, and I am delighted at my knock,” said Azhar.
“On this pitch, they bowled well and kept us checked all the time, challenged us and never allowed us to score quickly, so credit must be given to them,” he said.
