Pakistan was able to initiate a good start as the openers stood for a ton-stand partnership.
Soon after the century partnership, Lyon struck the first wicket as Shafique’s shot didn’t swing as he planned, as the ball landed in the safe hands of skipper Cummins.
Shafique walks back with 44 runs in bag, having played 105 balls. Azhar Ali joins Imam-ul-Haq to carry on the dominance.
What a monumental brain fade from Abdullah Shafique, three minutes before the lunch break.
