After Imam-ul-Haq (157) was outsmarted by Pat Cummins, Azhar Ali (151*) in tandem with Babar Azam continued to grind Australia down in the first Test at Rawalpindi. At Tea on Day 2, the hosts found themselves in a commanding position at 394/2. As the players headed out to the middle for the afternoon session, all eyes were on Azhar, with the senior pro just five short of three figures. The experienced Azhar duly reached the landmark by charging down the track and clobbering Nathan Lyon downtown.
