Australia was out for 299 runs in the first innings on the third day of the third Test in Sydney on Friday. Fast bowler Aamer Jamal took six wickets to help Pakistan win. Australia was 14 runs behind Pakistan when the hosts lost four wickets for 10 runs after tea. Paceman Aamer Jamal took 6-69. It’s dry and breaking up on the Sydney Cricket Ground pitch, and the Test match is still very close with more than two days to go.

Mitchell Marsh hit his fourth fifty of the series on Friday, the third day of the third Test in Sydney. This gave Australia a lead over Pakistan in the first innings. Australia lost Alex Carey for 38 runs in the last over and went to tea with a score of 289-6. Marsh was still on 50 runs and Australia was only 24 runs behind Pakistan. In the first two Tests, Marsh scored 90, 63 not out, and 96. He kept up his great form. Sajid Khan bowled Carey, who played forward to the spinner.

The ball hit Carey in the sweater, which got the leg bail off. After losing Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, and Travis Head earlier in the day at Sydney Cricket Ground, the pair put together an 84-run stand to get the game back on track. Head couldn’t get going again after being ruled lbw by Aamer Jamal for 10 runs. He lost a review in the process. Australia beat India in the World Cup final this year, and Head was a big part of that win.
In the first two Tests of the series, which Australia won both, Head scored 40, 14, 17, and 0. When Marsh was on seven, Saim Ayub stopped him in a tough low chance. This was a big moment for Marsh. Big all-rounder “the Bison” also made it through a review for lbw to Hasan Ali when he was on 31. Pakistan took the lead by getting the wickets of Smith and Labuschagne in just six balls during the long morning session.
However, they lost the momentum soon after. Smith and Labuschagne, who both score over 70 in Tests at the SCG, looked like they were going to win until an amazing late double-wicket breakthrough. Smith fell for a well-planned Pakistani trap when they put three fielders around short extra cover to catch medium-pace bowler Mir Hamza. Smith did walk down the wicket for the next ball and try to hit the ball high, but Babar Azam caught it above his head. Australia’s best hitter made 38 runs off of 86 balls.
He looked shocked as he stared at a spot on the ground and then walked away in a sad mood. Soon after, Labuschagne came out and was caught by off-spinner Salman for 60 off 147 balls. The Pakistanis worked hard and earned their prize. They kept fighting with disciplined bowling and determined fielding even though they were already down three matches to none. The second Test in Melbourne was a really close game, but Australia won by 79 runs to win the series.
