On the fourth day of the second Test match between Pakistan and Australia being played at the National Stadium, Usman Khawaja and Marin Labushin started the incomplete innings for Australia.

At the start of the match, Marnus Labuschagne, who scored 44 runs on a total score of 97, returned to the pavilion, which was bowled by Shaheen Afridi.

Azhar Ali and Abdullah Shafiq shared 19 runs off 99 balls, Azhar had to bear the brunt of being overly defensive in the event of losing a wicket.

Azhar Ali tried to bounce Chris Green's short pitch ball but the ball did not bounce as expected and hit his arm in front of the wickets on which the umpire declared him out.

Azhar Ali did not take the review but he could have survived if he had done so because the ball hit his arm after hitting his gloves.

Both the players completed the team's century and did not allow any wicket to fall till the tea break.
