Australia opted to bat first in the series decider after winning the toss, and Shaheen Afridi made excellent use of the pristine red cherry on the first morning of the final Test match in Lahore to make early inroads into the Australian batting lineup. The left-arm quick struck twice, removing David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne in the same over to send the alarm bells ringing in the Australian camp before Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja joined forces to guide the side through to the lunch break without any further harm.
