Australia vs. Pakistan: Boxing Day Test, Day One

On a damp Boxing Day, Australia and Pakistan faced off in a cricket match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Here are the key highlights from the day:

  • Australia compiled a score of 187-3 on a rain-interrupted day, with Pakistan impressing with the ball but dropping critical chances.
  • Stumps on Day 1: Australia 187-3.
  • Wickets: Smith c Rizwan b Jamal 26 (Australia 154-3), Khawaja c Agha Salman b Hasan Ali 42 (Australia 108-2), Warner ct Babar b Agha Salman 38 (Australia 90-1).
  • Pakistan won the toss and chose to bowl.
  • The match began at 10:30 am AEDT.

Despite losing the toss and being asked to bat, Australia managed a reasonable result, considering the length of the delay due to rain. Pakistan's decision to bowl first did not yield the desired results, and they were unable to justify their choice. The match continues tomorrow, with Australia holding a slight lead after the first day's play.
