After Australia and Pakistan started playing the first Test at Gabba, the men in green were given a tough time by the hosts.
On day one, Pakistan had won the toss and chose to bat first. Only Asad Shafiq managed to score a half-century with 76 runs in 134 balls. He got bowled by the Cummins.
Australian bowlers Mitchell Starc and Cummins took 4 and 3 wickets, respectively. In Australia’s first innings David warner who opened batting scored 151(not out) in 256 balls. Joe Burns missed his century by 3 runs when he got bowled by Naseem Shah. Marnus Labuschagne who came to bat at one drop had scored 55(not out) in 94 balls.
There was a funny moment in the live coverage when no.11 Pakistan player who came to bat at the fall of the ninth wicket. At that time, on-air commentators included veteran broadcaster Kerry O’ Keeffe.
O’ Keeffe’s comment was: “I wonder how many restaurants Imran Khan has got kicked out of in Pakistan… He probably makes a booking in the name of Imran Khan and when he shows up, the staff says, ‘You are not Imran Khan!'”
